You have a health concern and your doctor needs additional information to better understand your condition. As a patient, it can be both frightening and confusing.
But skilled radiologists, like those at MedRay Imaging in Coquitlam, can make the process a lot easier by providing answers and diagnostic support.
“We are usually at the start of someone’s journey—someone dealing with an unexplained symptom or issue—and the family physician or specialist needs to get an accurate diagnosis,” says Randy Webster, COO of MedRay Imaging. “They send patients for imaging to diagnose what specifically is going on. Without it, people would not be getting treated properly.”
MedRay, the largest medical imaging provider in the province, provides expedited MRI scans, ultrasounds, mammograms, X-Rays, bone densitometry exams and more.
Patients at MedRay see a technologist who performs their scan and sends it to a radiologist at the facility. The radiologist then makes the diagnosis.
A team of radiologists owns MedRay, something that makes the facility different from those owned by private equity firms, Webster says.
“We are a company who has a strong sense of vision about what the future’s going to be,” he explains. “We have a strong core purpose: to preserve and improve health and quality of life through medical imaging.”
The team of radiologists that run MedRay also work with Eagle Ridge and Royal Columbian hospitals. Because of this connection, MedRay is a sponsor of both hospital foundations.
“We see ourselves as an important community asset,” Webster says. “As such, we do our best to support the community and give back whenever possible.”
