About Imaging Services
Premier Imaging Services
Using only the highest quality, state-of-the-art imaging equipment and the most highly skilled, certified technicians, Premier Imaging provides a variety of outpatient imaging studies including: MRI/MRA (using the high-field 1.5 Tesla magnet), CT, Ultrasound & Vascular Ultrasound, Mammography, X-ray and Bone Densitometry. Premier Imaging is staffed by a full-time radiologist Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the Wornall clinic. Premier Imaging radiologists are from the Western Missouri Radiological Group, who currently service Centerpoint Hospital, St. Luke’s Imaging on the Plaza and St. Luke’s South, as well as other hospitals and clinics. These radiologists are available on a daily basis for consult or questions. Please feel free to contact them if you have any questions regarding patient diagnostic testing.
On the exam order form, the referring physician or specialist can specify the preferred format in which the images will be reviewed. MRA, MRI, CT and Ultrasound images can be placed on film, CD or both. The images are copied onto a CD and/or printed onto film, according to the exam order form specifications. The MRA, MRI, CT and Ultrasound images provided are for the referring physician to keep and do not need to be returned to our clinic.
If you have any questions regarding Premier Imaging services, please feel free to call our Radiology Director, Susan Stidham, at the Wornall office, 816-941-1400.
Premier Imaging encourages patient referrals to our clinics whenever it is appropriate. Premier Imaging patients and their physicians will enjoy the ease of access to our imaging services and will be pleased with the quick turn around for patient reports, care and treatment. Both physicians and patients benefit from Premier Imaging because a fuller range of services is now available at our clinics. This is most advantageous and convenient for Encompass Medical Group patients, but can also be helpful to imaging patients in and around the Greater Kansas City area. Premier Imaging supports the continued collaboration of all medical professionals and those providing specialized care who appreciate and benefit from their long-standing relationship with Encompass Medical Group.
While Premier Imaging is certain that you will support our efforts to provide a fuller range of services to Encompass Medical Group patients by referring those patients to Premier Imaging, we want to remind you that we are happy to provide imaging services to non-Encompass patients as well. Keep in mind that Premier Imaging is focused on providing superior and expanded imaging care… for all imaging patients.
