Foundation Radiology Group Adds World Class Cardiovascular Imaging Expert, Dr. Sanj Katyal, to Staff
Date:11/25/2008

PITTSBURGH, Nov. 25 /PRNewswire/ -- Pittsburgh-based Foundation Radiology Group (FRG) is pleased to announce the hiring of Dr. Sanj Katyal as their new Senior Vice President of Clinical Operations. Katyal will be joining them from West Penn Hospital, where he was most recently the Chief of Cardiovascular Imaging and Past President of the Pittsburgh Radiology Society.

Dr. Katyal is widely regarded as the preeminent cardiovascular imager in Western Pennsylvania. Dr. Derek Armfield, president of FRG, said, "Dr. Katyal is not only a great clinician but a well-recognized leader in the local and national radiology landscape. His expertise in advanced body imaging and cardiac CT will further enhance our ability to provide subspecialty interpretations for our clients. His commitment to FRG is another testament to the success of our model and vision."

FRG's board certified radiologists are available 24/7/365 to provide readings in musculoskeletal radiology, neuroradiology, mammography, cardiac CT, interventional radiology, pediatric radiology, brain perfusion, vascular ultrasound, OB/GYN ultrasound and general radiology. With this broad range of capabilities, FRG is ideally positioned to provide subspecialty radiological services to smaller hospitals and outpatient centers that can't afford to keep subspecialists on staff. The addition of Katyal is a testament to their desire to build up their subspecialty offerings.

Dr. Katyal also expressed excitement over his new position: "Until recently, most community hospitals could not offer patients the same level of subspecialty radiology experience that is typically found at large academic centers. With their unique business model that utilizes both local radiologists in the hospital and centralized subspecialty interpretations via teleradiology, FRG is able to provide faster, more efficient radiology interpretations by very experienced, fellowship-trained radiologists. I look forward to helping develop this high level of specialized imaging to hospitals throughout the country."

CEO of FRG, Dr. Brandon Chan, echoed Armfield's sentiments about Katyal's experience and reputation, and went on to add, "Katyal's main role will be clinical supervision of on-site doctors. As Senior Vice President of Clinical Operations, he will be a superb leader of our reading facility in Pittsburgh. This furthers FRG's goal to be a global leader in teleradiology."
