Carolina Radiology is a team of physicians who provide medical imaging services to institutions such as hospitals and medical practices. At these facilities, our radiologists interpret or “read” imaging exams, perform minimally-invasive, image-guided surgical and diagnostic procedures, consult with other physicians on test selection and treatment planning, and provide other imaging-related services.
Some of the services we provide, such as interventional radiology procedures, involve direct interaction between the patient and one of our physicians. However, our role in many instances is “behind the scenes.” If one of our physicians interpreted your X-ray, mammogram, CT scan, MRI, or other imaging exam, you probably didn’t interact with them.
Bills for the services we provide are sent to the patient or insurance company separately from bills for services from the facility where you received your care. That’s why you will see a bill from Carolina Radiology even though you may not have seen one of our doctors.
