COVID-19 Notice

Radiology Affiliates Imaging is open and providing care at both of our imaging centers. Screening exams have resumed at all of our sites. Based on guidance from the CDC, state and federal governments, and national radiology leaders, RAI has modified our policies and procedures. These important changes will help keep you safe.
