The RAYUS Quality Institute

Founded in 2003, the RAYUS Quality Institute defines and pursues quality measures in radiology (or medical imaging) and related service lines. Our goal is to better define quality of care for our customers in a way that is measurable, comparable and makes sense to them.

Excellence in Patient Care Starts Here

The RAYUS Quality Institute is a non-profit organization directly affiliated with RAYUS and its partners.  It is governed by the RAYUS Council of Medical Directors and is devoted to achieving and promoting excellence in patient care through the sharing of best practices.  So when we see excellent results providing clinical services one way, we ask how to apply that information to improve other areas of patient care.

As we strive toward developing and maintaining best practice medical imaging and excellence, there are three main areas we focus on:

  • Consistency of quality among all our physicians and their clinical teams
  • Seeking solutions to keep healthcare accessible and affordable
  • Maintaining patient-focus despite changes in health care

To the patients we care for, this translates to: The right exam, at the right time, done right.
