Our experienced staff and board-certified radiologists use the most advanced technology to provide vivid images that help our specialists evaluate and diagnose health conditions. In fact, we are the only health care organization north of Denver with imaging facilities recognized as a Diagnostic Imaging Center of Excellence® (DICOE) by the American College of Radiology. This designation represents the pinnacle of medical imaging care.
