An orthoradiologist is a doctor who has advanced training in performing and interpreting imaging tests pertaining to musculoskeletal diseases.
Although appropriate and rigorous training is important, that is not enough. To be great at what you do, you must have experience. Studies suggest that you need 10,000 hours of practice before becoming proficient at a complex skill. That is why we require any individual to have a minimum of two years of “real-life” work experience doing primarily musculoskeletal radiology before we call them an orthoradiologist.
Here are our orthoradiologists:
- Vic David M.D.
- Marlon Maragh M.D.

OUR MRI TECHNOLOGISTS
Our orthoradiologists work closely with a team of highly-trained technologists who create the images. Our technologists are special people:
- They are all certified MRI experts according to the standards of the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists®.
- They are seasoned professionals who have done musculoskeletal imaging for years. They know what to look for when your scan is being done, and will get the images our orthoradiologists need to find out what is wrong.
- They routinely get outstanding performance ratings from patients just like you. Our patients get to know our technologists. Patients will ask for the same technologist when they come back for a repeat visit, because of their professionalism and personal touch.
