Enhanced radiology services benefit students, patients and community

In today’s practice environment, many chiropractors are choosing to have their radiographs interpreted by a chiropractic radiologist, or Diplomate of the American Chiropractic Board of Radiology (DACBR). Having your X-ray, MRI or CT images interpreted by a DACBR can improve diagnostic confidence and patient management— as well as reduce liability—by providing professional radiology reports and answers to imaging questions.

Palmer’s Chiropractic Clinics on the Florida Campus offer these services to chiropractors throughout the United States and worldwide through the Palmer Imaging Consultation Services (PICS) provided by Matthew Richardson, D.C., DACBR, director of Clinical Radiology for the Florida Campus. (Dr. Ian McLean directs PICS on the Davenport Campus.)

“I have been a part of Palmer’s Florida Campus since late December of 2010,” said Dr. Richardson. “My primary goal from that point has been to make a positive impact in the Florida Campus clinic through improving the radiology experience for both students and patients. I enjoy functioning as an imaging resource for the chiropractic community by providing diagnostic imaging reports and consultations to both clinicians and student interns on the Florida Campus. In addition, we at Palmer want to extend imaging consultation services to the entire Florida community and beyond through PICS by assisting practitioners in the field with their imaging needs.”
