Acute Care Support

Trapped by a shortage of available Radiologists?

In this new era of medical imaging, ER physicians increasingly rely on advanced imaging to triage and effectively treat patients presenting acutely to their facilities. Whether imaging is done for trauma, suspected stroke, acute abdomen or acute chest pain, having a team of sub- specialized radiologists at your disposal at all times is crucial to institute accurate and timely treatment for your patients. Partnering with ARC is your solution for a quick and efficient report turn-around, with personalized communication between the radiologist and the ER physicians. With years of experience in providing services to level I trauma centers all over the world, ARC has perfected the delivery of accurate and timely results.

Our team of specialized radiologists and support staff, along with our optimized network for global data transfer, enables us to provide radiology support for your acute care patients as if we were onsite at your facility. We collaborate with your team to deliver timely consultations at your point of care.

Final and Preliminary Interpretations

Your patients and clients rely on you to provide fast, accurate preliminary and final interpretations. When you partner with ARC, we become an extension of your team, helping you deliver on your promises, even in difficult or unexpected situations. Every call to ARC is answered immediately and we have our certified radiologists available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week for your support.

Preliminary Interpretations
ARC provides preliminary interpretations for routine needs or emergencies. We pride ourselves on our ability to provide immediate results for you in emergent situations, whether you need a second opinion or an accelerated image interpretation.

Final Interpretations
When you have overflow work or a shortage of staff, you can trust ARC to be an efficient, reliable partner that can help you continue your practice without interruption—up to and including the final interpretation of a patient study. Our team of highly skill radiologists, along with our fast data transfer rates, helps us deliver final interpretations as if we were actually at your facility. And if you simply want to focus more on other facets of your practice, ARC’s advanced technology and skilled team puts you in the perfect position to accomplish your goals.

Acute Stroke Services
ARC’s acute stroke services group provides the latest, proven CT, CTA and CTP protocols interpreted by neuroradiologists with extensive training and experience in the field of acute stroke. Our state-of-the-art imaging, coupled with timely reads by experienced sub-specialty providers, puts your practice on the cutting edge of today’s acute stroke services technology. Our turnkey solution helps you:

  • Attract patients with stroke and stroke-related diagnoses
  • Provide clinically relevant imaging and data to support initial treatment in acute stroke situations
  • Provide a level of service that was once only available in large academic, tertiary care centers

Plus, ARC’s acute stroke services are easy to establish and maintain. We set up the imaging protocols (the same ones used in major academic centers) and educate and guide your staff in their appropriate use. You simply acquire the images, push them to our secure IP address, and await a phone call from one of our qualified neuroradiologists with the results.
