Trauma and Emergency Radiology

Radiology is the eyes of healthcare, and in emergency situations often provides the critical information required when time matters most. Orlando Health provides the region’s only Level One Trauma Center, with separate dedicated programs for adults and children. In addition, six of the hospitals in the Orlando Health system provide 24/7 general emergency services. There are approximately 300,000 emergency patients and 5,000 high level trauma patients each year. In 2013, the Orlando Regional Medical Center campus became a Registered Stroke Center. As well, Winnie Palmer Hospital provides one of the nation’s busiest birthing centers and handles high risk, emergent pregnancies. The Neonatal Intensive care unit is one of the largest and busiest in the nation, providing emergent services to our smallest and most fragile patients.

The board-certified radiologists of MCRG offer real-time services for this critical aspect of patient care at Orlando Health, relying on state-of-the-art equipment to provide the complex imaging required to save lives. The Director of Emergency Radiology is a Board Certified Emergency Physician, a Board Certified Radiologist and one of very few Fellows of the Society of Emergency Radiology.

MCRG provides in-house radiology services and interpretations immediately 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, including special ultra-fast CAT scans, ultrasound and X-ray in the ER for trauma patients, saving time and cost of transporting patients. From expectant mothers to newborns; those suffering injuries from twisted ankles to car accidents; or patients in the “golden hour” of an evolving stroke or just experiencing a scary headache, the radiologists of MCRG have been there since 1949 to provide the “eyes” of medicine when it has mattered most.
