Staffing seven major hospitals in the Mid-Atlantic Region, Radiology Associates anticipates continued demand for the services it provides. The group is committed to building on the traditions of service and technological innovation established by its founding pioneers.

Since the early days when Wilhelm Roentgen discovered X-rays and when Dr. Daniel Talley, Jr. founded Radiology Associates of Richmond, radiology has become an increasingly powerful tool for both the diagnosis and treatment of medical conditions once considered almost beyond the reach of medicine.

Continuing developments in computed tomography, magnetic resonance imaging, and new interventional techniques are thresholds to the future of radiology. Radiology Associates intends to be a part of that future and continues to expand its staff with physicians qualified to use these new developments for the benefit of the patient.

Women's Health
Radiology Associates of Richmond recommends yearly screening mammography to start at age 40. In the midst of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, the American Cancer Society (ACS) released revised breast cancer screening guidelines.

The ACS now recommends beginning annual screening mammograms at the age of 45 (instead of age 40) with biennial mammographic screening beginning at the age of 55.
  • More than 40,000 women die of breast cancer in the United States each year
  • One third of these women are under age 50 and have not been regularly screened.
  • Studies have shown that screening women with mammography beginning at the age of 40 significantly reduces the number of deaths from breast cancer
  • Earlier breast cancer detection allows for better treatment options and increased survival
  • Randomized controlled studies demonstrate at least a 30% decrease in mortality in women who get regular screening mammograms
The recently revised ACS guidelines and conflicting recommendations amongst various organizations have proven to be confusing for both patients and clinicians. Radiology Associates of Richmondís main goal is to save as many lives as possible from breast cancer through early detection.

Radiology Associates will continue to follow the recommendations set forth by the Society of Breast Imaging (SBI) and the American College of Radiology (ACR). These recommendations state that women not at increased risk should begin annual screening mammography at the age of 40. We collectively feel that this is in the best interest of our patients.

New Frontiers in Stroke Therapy at CJW Neuroscience & Gamma Knife Center's Neurovascular Lab
Dr. Efstathios Spinos, neurointerventional radiologist at CJW, is the first physician in the Richmond area to place Boston Scientific's Wingspan Stent System into a patient's artery in the brain. The Wingspan stent opens blocked arteries and quickly restores blood flow to brain tissue which assists in prevention of further strokes. CJW is one of only three Medical Centers across Virginia that has performed this procedure.

Blockages in the delicate blood vessels within the brain are much more prone to rupture and are most often treated with medicine. If medications fail, these patients had no other effective or safe alternative until this procedure was developed. more...
Balloon Kyphoplasty
Kyphoplasty is indicated for the treatment and reduction of Vertebral Compression Fractures (VCF) caused by primary and secondary osteoporosis, multiple myeloma, bone metastases, and hemangioma. The benefit and objective of the procedure is to provide immediate pain relief through stabilization of the fracture and restored height of the vertebrae. more...
