The Kona Imaging Center
The Kona office of Hawaii Radiologic Associates was established in 1996 with two technologists, providing x-ray, ultrasound, and mammography services. Since then, the Kona clinic employs eight technologists and offers computed tomography and digital mammography and does approximately 32,000 procedures a year.
There are one of three board certified radiologists on site at all times. Dr. Robert Saito has been with the company since 1997 and Dr. Lori Wilhelm joined the clinic in 1998. In 2006, the company welcomed Dr. Stan Maynard from South Carolina.
The clinic is accredited by the American College of Radiology, insuring that the equipment meets certain stringent standards and is regularly surveyed by medical physicists. All of our technologists are also certified.
We are committed to providing state of the art imaging to the Kona coast and continually strive to expand to best serve the needs of our unique community.
Established more than 30 years ago, Hawaii Radiologic Associates has grown from its modest beginnings as Hilo Radiologic Associates to the Big Island of Hawaii's most advanced radiology group.
Today, the group of nine specialty trained radiologists provide diagnostic imaging services in four convenient outpatient imaging centers located in East and West Hawaii and also provide professional interpretation services at four hospitals/medical centers around the island.
Each of our radiologists are board-certified by the American Board of Radiology and many have fellowships or additional training in subspecialties such as musculoskeletal radiology, neuroradiology, body imaging, women's imaging, nuclear medicine and vascular and interventional radiology. Because of their experience and skill, our radiologists ensure that each patient's exam is performed quickly with accurate results.
With the latest technology our radiologists and technologists provide an array of diagnostic imaging procedures. Our services include CT and CT Angiography with multi-slice technology, high resolution Open MRI and Breast MRI, Digital Mammography, high definition ultrasound, and digital x-ray and fluoroscopy.
Whether you've come to our site as a visitor seeking information for family or a friend or whether you're here as a patient or referring physician, Hawaii Radiologic Associates welcomes you.
