East Kootenay Divisions of Family Practice

Shared Care Radiology

In early 2012, a radiology working group was formed with family physicians from Creston, Cranbrook, and Kimberley, as well as a Cranbrook radiologist and radiology staff.

The working group shared information aimed at improving communication between family physicians and the radiology department. They took this information and created Radiology 101. This document was distributed to all EK Division members and East Kootenay clinics.

“We share the mutual goal of providing the best care possible for our patients in a timely manner. Anything that we can do to assist one another ultimately benefits our patients.”

Dr. Kang-Min Zhu, Radiologist
