From the University of Texas Dell Medical School website, Friday, November 3, 2017:
“AUSTIN, Texas — Dell Medical School at The University of Texas has launched a new Department of Diagnostic Medicine, which is developing partnerships with local clinical practices and community physicians to redefine how diagnostic testing is designed, delivered and leveraged to improve health.
The new approach to diagnosing diseases has multiple potential benefits for Central Texas patients and physicians: improving accuracy in diagnoses, making testing more convenient and efficient, lowering costs, and broadly integrating patient health data with electronic medical records.
Dell Med’s Department of Diagnostic Medicine, one of only a handful of similar medical school departments nationwide, is chaired by R. Nick Bryan, MD, PhD, a radiologist and nationally known leader in the field.
Key local partners include Austin Radiological Association (ARA Diagnostic Imaging) and Clinical Pathology Associates (CPA), both of which have deep roots in Central Texas and offer a wealth of experience and expertise, Bryan said. …
ARA continues to follow CDC guidelines in requiring employees and patients to wear masks at our imaging centers for the safety of all.
