F.A.Q.

Why should we consider outsourcing to PIA if we already have an Imaging Lab. ?

PIA provides vital backstopping to existing in-house post-processing capabilities, that ensure continued quality service and improved workflow.

We provide coverage for days or weeks when your facility is short-staffed, or expertise for cases where you may not have the onsite software or experienced personnel needed to process specific cases.

 

Do you provide training for client staff?

Yes, PIA offers a quality educational training program from expert staff members who have over 20 years of experience in CMR and CCTA.  Your staff will gain practical education around CMR and CCTA criteria and measurement which will include a performance assessment and feedback.  Upon completion, your technologist will have a comprehensive understanding of image acquisition and the basic cardiovascular capabilities of their MR and CT system. As a result of this expert training, our clients see up to an increase of 3x in scanner throughput.

 

Are there Image Transfer Options?

Yes, PIA can receive images in many different ways to meet a client’s needs. Secure automated solutions include:

  • DICOM Gateways
  • Virtual Private Networks (VPNs)
  • Leased Lines

Manual web transfers of image files is also available, and ideal for low projected volumes.

 

Can we request changes to an analysis?

Yes, PIA prides ourselves on our responsive service. We receive (and reply to) instructions, amendments, or questions via email, phone, or text—and we are available to set-up joint tele-sessions for one-on-one support.
