Eli F. Dweck, MD
Chairman, Department of Radiology
Aria's Department of Radiology, one of the premier community-hospital radiology groups in the region and one of the largest radiology groups in the Philadelphia area. Its staff provides radiologic testing and care of the highest quality.
The service takes pride in its field, its team, its facilities, and its expanding list of procedures. Patients can feel the same confidence and comfort that they would with at any major or university-based medical center. Aria radiologists we work to earn trust with a high level of performance, while offering personal, convenient, neighborhood care.
Radiology is the branch of medicine that uses various types of directed-beam energies, electromagnetic radiation, and sound waves to create images of the body –– its organs and structures –– for the purpose of diagnosis, or to guide treatments that radiologists deliver. The images generated in radiology can reveal diseases and conditions, and can show how effectively the body and its internal organs and structures are functioning. The types of energies used to create these images help to divide the various radiology modalities into different categories of imaging. Radiology has evolved into a high-tech science with constantly updated equipment to aid in imaging more aspects of the body and an increasing number of procedures that allow radiologists to actually intervene and address physical conditions. While there is always caution about the potential harmful side effects associated with the use of radiation and other types of energy used in imaging, we know that the small risks are greatly outweighed by the information gained. Research has shown that exposure to electromagnetic radiation, ultrasound waves, and other forms of energy used in radiology are within safe ranges.
Aria radiology seeks to provide patients the very foremost in diagnostic imaging and radiology-guided inverventions.
