In 2005, Richard Chesbrough, MD, radiologist and expert witness, saw the need for a better way to communicate and document the receipt of critical findings and follow-up reminders. His experience in radiology litigation made him acutely aware that communication between caregivers is an ongoing problem and has an overwhelming contribution to medical malpractice cases.

To meet this need for “closed-loop” communication, Chesbrough conceived and developed RADAR. In 2011, RadNet, Inc. became the holding company for RADAR.

In 2011, RadNet selected RADAR for its flexible, intuitive and stable technology and because RADAR has the backbone needed for expansion. RadNet’s vision was for a product that could handle volume while still maintaining the hallmark adaptability seen in RadNet workflows, and RADAR aligned with that vision. RADAR customers benefit not only from the RADAR team’s proficiency but also from the synergy with RadNet’s RIS, PACS and technology experts.

RADAR is making a difference.

We are continually developing new ideas and ways to use the RADAR communications platform. We have the strength, depth and staff to take RADAR into communication areas that may have been a mere thought in years past.
