Southtowns Radiology Announces the CBCCT Certification of Dr. Gerald J. Joyce
January 8, 2009, ORCHARD PARK, NY – Southtowns Radiology Associates announced today the CBCCT certification of Dr. Gerald J. Joyce.
Dr. Joyce is one of the first physicians in the country to earn a specialist’s designation from the Certification Board of Cardiovascular Computed Tomography (CBCCT).
The CBCCT, established in 2006, promotes and enhances patient care by defining the domain of cardiovascular computed tomography (CCT) and identifying the requisite knowledge and skills for quality practice through their certification program. They provide practice-based standards, assess the level of knowledge demonstrated by Cardiovascular Computed Tomography specialists, encourage professional growth, and formally recognize individuals who meet board requirements.
“Computed tomography (CT) is one of the most rapidly evolving and complex techniques for assessing cardiovascular anatomy,” said Dr. Mary Turkiewicz, M.D., President of Southtowns Radiology Associates. “Because we take pride in providing state-of-the-art care, we are very pleased that Dr. Joyce has earned this distinction and will continue to bring his expertise to our patients.”
A graduate of Albany Medical College School of Medicine, Dr. Joyce earned his post-doctoral training and internship at Berkshire Medical Center in Pittsfield, Maine, and a residency at the State University of New York at Buffalo in Diagnostic Radiology as well as a Pediatric Radiology Fellowship at Children’s Hospital of Buffalo. Prior to attending medical school, he received his Bachelor of Science in Biology at the State University of New York at Fredonia. He resides in East Aurora with his wife and three children.
Southtowns Radiology Associates is a well-established, multi-specialty practice that owns and operates several medical diagnostic imaging facilities throughout Western New York as well as providing professional reading services at three local hospitals. Fully Board Certified physicians, many of whom have additional certifications in their sub-specialty, read all imaging services.
