Welcome from our Director

Timothy Albert, MD FACC
Welcome to the Ryan Ranch Center for Advanced Diagnostic Imaging, where we are ushering in a new era of care for patients with or at risk for cardiovascular disease.

The Ryan Ranch Center exists for three primary reasons. First and foremost, it is our goal to partner with your physician to help you, or someone you love, take steps to identify, reduce or manage the risk of cardiovascular disease. The Ryan Ranch Center brings together experts in cardiology and advanced cardiovascular imaging with state-of-the-art technologies--all in a safe, serene and comfortable environment.

Secondly, we conduct research that advances clinical care locally and nationally. Through a strategic partnership with Toshiba America Medical Systems, we are exploring the frontier of cardiovascular imaging, so that we can both provide state-of-the-art care today, and create the standard of care for tomorrow.

Finally, education is at the core of what we do. Whether it is patient education about how to manage heart disease, or global education for physicians learning the latest developments in cardiovascular imaging, we believe it is our responsibility to share our knowledge base. This is a responsibility we take very seriously. It is a responsibility that will result in better cardiovascular health for our patients, and patients across the country.

Our Center is home to the most advanced technology available today in cardiovascular imaging. Our MRI offers unprecedented clarity and detail without radiation. Unlike many other non-invasive cardiac imaging tests, MRI studies at the Ryan Ranch Center can often be done without contrast agents or IVs. Our revolutionary 320-slice CT scanner allows faster and safer imaging of the heart and heart arteries, with patients exposed to 80% less radiation than other similar devices.

Excellence in clinical care, research and education--it is our guiding principle. We look forward to working with you for a healthier tomorrow.

Warm regards,

Timothy Albert, MD, FACC
