Building the Best in Radiology - One Center at a Time

Medical Imaging Specialists (MIS) is an expanding infrastructure of outpatient imaging centers in the Northeast with the proven resources, experience, and ability to scale and manage radiology practices across a multi-state operation. Our mission is to build the best in radiology by ensuring our outpatient centers provide the very best imaging services for their local communities.

The Growth of Medical Imaging Specialists™

MIS was founded in 1999 and over the next 10 years became a nationally recognized radiology consulting firm to hospitals and independent practices across the US. Serving over 400 health systems, MIS was able to produce significant returns for customers including:

  • an increase in over $3M in profit to a hospital organization
  • helping three imaging center avoid bankruptcy through an average of a 17% increase in volumes
  • helping radiologists earn an annual compensation greater than 9% of their peers in the same community

In 2012, MIS acquired the first of several outpatient centers and worked alongside all original radiologist and staff to construct advanced clinical protocols and patient-centric values that set us apart from competitors. MIS centers provide state of the art multi-modality diagnostic and interventional radiology services. To learn more about current MIS imaging centers, please visit our centers page.

MIS and Radiology Today

The recent rapid evolution of radiology has resulted in tremendous challenges for many radiology business owners including:

  • high cost
  • excess capacity
  • increased regulatory scrutiny
  • stagnant number of radiologists
  • delivery model changes
  • declining reimbursement
  • low visibility in the market

MIS has successfully created solutions for hospitals, imaging centers, and radiologists /practices for almost 20 years by addressing these core issues across radiology departments.

If you are interested in learning more about partnering with MIS, please contact acquisitions. The current mission for MIS is to acquire 25 additional outpatient centers and continue to build the best in radiology.
