Sanford Health Adds 13 Radiologists

Entire Team Includes 10 Fellowship Trained Radiologists

(Sioux Falls, SD) Sanford Health announced today the addition of 13 of the area’s best radiologists to the team, including the region’s only fellowship trained breast radiologists and pediatric radiologists. This expands the Sanford radiology group to 21 physicians, 10 of whom are fellowship trained.

Radiology is the use of imaging to both diagnose and treat disease using an array of imaging technologies such as x-ray radiography, ultrasound, computed tomography (CT), nuclear medicine and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). Fellowship trained radiologists have received a minimum of one year in additional training in a specific area, such as breast or pediatrics.

“Sanford’s imaging services offer patients the latest in breast imaging techniques using state-of-the-art technology and imaging services,” said Thomas Cink, MD, Sanford fellowship trained breast radiologist. “I’ve worked closely with Sanford Health and Sanford Breast Health Institute for a number of years, and I am excited and proud to formally join the Sanford team.”

The experienced radiologists are not new to the Sioux Falls community. They join the Sanford team from Medical X-Ray Center P.C. in Sioux Falls.

Fellowship trained pediatric radiologist Susan Duffek, MD adds, “I enjoy working with the Pediatric Subspecialists and Pediatricians at Sanford Children's and look forward to continuing to provide pediatric radiology services to the children of this region."
