Aris makes its first RSNA debut
Aris Teleradiology highlighted its breast MRI reading service at the 2008 RSNA annual meeting and scientific sessions in Chicago.

Carl Kozlowski, president, told Health Imaging News that the company provides a flexible teleradiology service by taking into account the needs of a hospital and radiology group. Exhibiting for the first time at RSNA, Kozlowski said that Aris is a full service teleradiology firm, offering preliminary and final, daytime and evening, subspecialty, vacation coverage and overflow work.

“The market has changed--if you can’t offer everything, no one will take you seriously,” he said.

Radiologists, certified by the American Board of Radiology, learn from fellowship trained radiologists who not only have subspecialty training in breast MRI, but also are available for consultative reads, according to Aris.

Kozlowski also said that the company’s technology “sets it apart from the competition.”

“With a web-based technology structure that provides system redundancy and guaranteed “always on” technology, the system provides you with peace of mind and the tools you need to offer the highest quality patient care,” he said. The company also has two redundant systems with data centers in separate facilities to ensure operations work 24/7.

Aris Teleradiology is a partnership between Summa Health System and Akron Radiology. Akron Radiology is a subspecialty private practice radiology group consisting of 29 board certified radiologists in Northeast Ohio.

Summa Health System is a large organized delivery systems in Ohio, encompassing a network of hospitals, community health centers, a health plan, a physician-hospital organization, an entrepreneurial entity, research and a foundation, according to the Hudson, Ohio-based Aris.
