Emergency and Trauma Imaging
There when you need us.
Some traumatic injuries can only be treated with radiology. Interventional radiologists use special techniques to perform in emergency imaging situations, such as embolization and angioplasty (to stop bleeding), or using imaging to find the exact location of a life-threatening wound.
Radiologists treat every system in the body, including blood vessels, the spine, bones, internal organs, skin and certain areas like the brain or pelvis that may be inaccessible to other clinicians. They are also well-positioned to handle multi-system trauma, like shock and sepsis, because of their comprehensive understanding of the body.
West Coast Radiology works with medical and surgical specialists in acute traumatic and non-traumatic medical emergencies. They need immediate diagnosis and collaboration, and our practice is set up to prioritize and manage critical exams. In addition to immediate read of STAT studies, we provide the interventional procedures shown below.
