The RUSH Approach to Diagnostic Imaging
Using the latest imaging technologies, our experts can precisely diagnose the exact location of your arthritis, pinpoint calcifications in your arteries, stage the spread of cancer and more.
RUSH radiologists specialize in specific parts of the body, such as the brain or breast. That means they are experts in spotting abnormalities in these areas on imaging scans, even in the early stages of a disease. This helps ensure you get the care and treatment you need as soon as possible.
Our goal is to make the imaging experience seamless for you. This begins with convenient access, including same-day appointments, at multiple locations in Chicago and the suburbs. And, our licensed, friendly technologists will help ensure your test is as comfortable as possible.
RUSH Excellence in Diagnostic Imaging
- Rapid results: Our advanced imaging technologies produce high-quality images very quickly, which helps ensure that you and your physician can get the results quickly, often within 24 hours. In addition, you can conveniently access your results online via RUSH MyChart.
- Uncovering innovative approaches: Our radiologists are involved in research to identify more accurate diagnostic approaches. The goal is to not only to make diagnosis more precise and accurate but also to improve your patient experience when getting an imaging test.
- Experienced interventional radiologists: Sometimes it can be hard to see what is causing your medical issue on an imaging scan. In these cases, RUSH interventional radiologists may perform minimally invasive procedures to get to the root of the issue. Through an incision no larger than the tip of a pencil, our interventional radiologists thread a thin tube with a tiny video camera to hard-to-see areas of the body. They can treat certain conditions, including clogged arteries and fibroids, during the same procedure. This often results in less pain and shorter recovery time than you’d experience during traditional open surgery.
- Breast imaging centers of excellence: All RUSH breast imaging locations in Chicago, Oak Park, Oak Brook and Aurora/Fox Valley have been named Breast Imaging Centers of Excellence by the American College of Radiology.
