OSWEGO, NY – Oswego Health welcomes David Wang, MD, of CRA Medical Imaging, as the new chief of service for medical imaging.
Dr. Wang has more than 20 years of experience as a physician radiologist.
A native of Michigan, Dr. Wang earned his medical degree from Wayne State University in Detroit, Mich.
He completed his residency in diagnostic radiology at Sinai Hospital of Detroit and his fellowship at Henry Ford Hospital in nuclear medicine, also located in Detroit.
While he is trained in all medical imaging areas, he specializes in nuclear medicine and mammography.
“I am looking forward to working with Oswego Health’s patients, physicians and staff,” said Dr. Wang. “This is a wonderful opportunity.”
CRA Medical Imaging and Oswego Health partnered several years ago to provide community members with exceptional medical imaging services.
CRA Medical Imaging physician radiologists represent a wide range of sub-specialists trained in neuroradiology, breast imaging and musculoskeletal imaging, as well as interventional radiology and nuclear medicine.
These radiologists have immediate access to their subspecialty-trained colleagues for consultation on complex cases.
CRA Medical Imaging also uses voice recognition software for the prompt turnaround of patient imaging reports to the referring physician.
The Oswego Health system continues to provide the most advanced imaging technology.
In early 2015, Oswego Health will install a fixed magnetic resonance imaging unit.
The new equipment is cutting edge when depicting and clarifying diseases of the brain, spine, liver, pancreas, kidney, uterus and other soft-tissue organs.
It will further assist with orthopedic diagnoses, such as knee meniscal tears or shoulder rotator cuff injuries.
As part of this equipment purchase, a new MRI breast coil, the most advanced available, will be installed.
A new MRI suite will be built inside Oswego Hospital, offering patients more comfortable and convenient access to this medical imaging service.
Oswego Health has imaging locations throughout Oswego County, including Oswego Hospital, the adjacent Oswego Health Services Center, the Central Square and Fulton Medical Centers, the Pulaski Health Center and Oswego Health Center on George Street in Oswego.
To make an imaging appointment, community members can call 349-5540.
