Direct Radiology goes beyond the basics to be a true partner. We bring passion for the profession, produce high-quality, clinically-useful work and provide accessible, responsive physician leadership.
Founded and run by working radiologists, our 90+ board-certified radiologists and cardiologists work closely with more than 390 hospitals, imaging centers, doctor’s offices and mobile imaging companies around the country.
From 2016 through 2018, Direct Radiology was prominently listed on the Inc. 5000 list of the fastest growing private companies in America. We were the only radiology or teleradiology practice on the list, and we believe this is due to our commitment to continuous quality improvement, unparalleled service levels, accurate radiology reports, and fast turnaround times.
In March 2019, Philips partnered with Direct Radiology to enhance and improve the radiologist experience, staying true to its key message to customers: “For radiologists, by radiologists”. Incorporating Philips’ innovative artificial intelligence, cutting edge analytics, new and interactive technology, and stronger support services into the clinical operations of Direct Radiology, we are mutually positioned to change how hospitals and imaging centers view teleradiology as a preliminary service, and instead the next step in an evolution in the practice of radiology.
