Dr. Ryan Polselli provides services for a variety of facilities in his work for Global Imaging Specialists covering Florida and Illinois. As a professional in Breast Imaging and a General Radiologist for Global Imaging, Polselli covers Rush-Copley Medical Center in Illinois. He also services outpatient and hospital facilities like Westcoast Radiology, MRI Associates and Tampa Bay Mobile Mammography in Florida. Polselli is the American College of Radiology lead interpreting radiologist for many of these facilities. He has a 100% pass rate for program and equipment applications and surpasses annual Medical Quality Standards Act specifications. The MQSA has required the Department of Health and Human Services to establish strict standards requiring inspection of equipment and personnel, standards readily supported and adhered to by professionals like Dr. Ryan Polselli.
Dr. Ryan Polselli labors to deliver the many services of Global Imaging Specialists with the professionalism he has delivered during his entire medical career. Global Imaging performs screening and diagnostic mammography breast tomosynthesis, breast ultrasound and breast MRI. Breast biopsy procedures include techniques of ultrasound, stereotactic and MRI-guided approaches. Global Imaging covers arthrograms, hysterosalpingograms, sonohysterograms, ultrasound guided soft tissue core biopsies, fine needle aspirations, myelograms, joint injections and CT guided biopsies.
With a guiding hand in projects to improve practice quality and certifications, Ryan Polselli also has designed studies of dual energy X-ray absorptiometry for the bone densitometry machines of Westcoast Radiology. His purpose was to discern changes in measured bone densities for referring physicians. Such information helped doctors measure the meaning and importance of changes in ongoing examinations of a patient. Polselli currently owns and maintains dual monitor GE and dual monitor Hologic Secure View workstations from his home. This allows him to make remote mammographic interpretations and consultations. To ensure conformity with MQSA requirements, Polselli confers with technological colleagues for inspections and reports.
Always innovative and inventive, Dr. Ryan Polselli also designed and launched dynamic contrast enhanced sequence protocols as well as patient-technologist protocols for the 1.5T and 3.0T GE MRIs. Polselli created the MRI diagnostic and screening program for Westcoast Radiology, increasing MRI screening of the community at the facility for breast MRIs as he did so. To meet American Cancer Society guidelines, Polselli negotiated contractual licensure for the IBIS breast imaging software module. This software enabled Tyrer-Cuzick breast cancer risk assessment capability. Used alongside standard patient intake questionnaires, Westcoast Radiology was able to identify 5% more patients with greater than a 20% risk of breast cancer for screening.
As a member and Diplomate of the American Board of Radiology and a Certified Clinical Densitometrist (an individual who has passed a standardized testing process in bone densitometry for evaluating DXA, or dual energy X-ray absorptiometry), Ryan J. Polselli M.D. and Radiologist has turned his talents toward the detection and early diagnosis of breast lesions and cancers. Ryan Polselli is today the Breast Imaging professional and General Radiologist at Global Imaging Specialists of Florida and Illinois.
As the founder and CEO of MammoLink®, a professional team of experts in mammography who work with OB-Gyn and general practitioner physicians in the United States to make mammography services available to patients in the office, Ryan Polselli aims to significantly improve patient care. Access to the best breast cancer screening compliance satisfies the needs of patients. It also redirects the revenue stream back to its source; the direct contact between patients and doctors. MammoLink® allows physicians to choose and customize the MammoLink® options which will work for their offices and their patients.
MammoLink® assures that services, technicians and equipment is in compliance both statewide and federally, while state-of-the-art 3D digital mammography units are installed and immediately available in physician’s offices.
Ryan Polselli, M.D. and Radiologist, has formed a company and service which fulfills a vital need for physicians and their patients with a minimum of stress and work. Polselli’s MammoLink® presents only the finest equipment in the world for women’s imaging. Similarly, MammoLink® retains leading United States’ experts in mammography with a minimum of 5 years in radiology after their medical school training. In addition, at least one additional year is required by MammoLink® in fellowship training for breast imaging in an accredited US institution. With MammoLink® technicians and technology, physicians and patients have instant results for their imaging studies during their office visits. Patients and physicians have the advantage of timely consultation and interpretation.
Dr. Ryan Polselli perceived, through his own years of experience as a physician and radiologist, that the process of mammography was full of anxiety and inefficiency, removed as it was from the immediate vicinity of their physician’s office and from his or her care. Additionally, mammography imaging equipment was sometimes substandard and sometimes painful for women. Polselli’s brainchild, MammoLink®, brings the finest equipment and technical expertise to the doctor’s office. MammoLink® eliminates the need for separate appointments, a trip to a distant imaging facility and the need to wait for imaging results.
Ryan Polselli is the CEO and founder of MammoLink, which started its successful run as a limited liability company in Palm Harbor, Florida by securing two provisional patents for medical devices created to decrease the number of medical errors in the field of breast imaging. Doctors can miss all kinds of information leading to unnecessary medical complications. Dr. Polselli saw a need for a new way of detecting early warning signs of cancer.
Since he founded MammoLink, Ryan Polselli has been successful in his industry because he never wavered from the vision and the impetus that originally drove him to create new products. One thing that all entrepreneurs must have is a clear and unwavering vision and plan for the future. They have to have a ‘why’ for their company. Dr. Polselli saw a need for better equipment to avoid some of the costly mistakes he saw in person as a radiologist, and that cause has motivated him ever since.
Ryan Polselli is “currently working to provide mutually beneficial research partnership with the academic community.”
All types of cancer are devestating, but #mesothelioma is one that is particularly bothersome because it is a cancer that typically affects hard working individuals that have given much to us as a nation. For more information, visit www.mesothelioma.com
Breast pain is one of the most common complaints heard by a breast imager. It inevitably generates a lot of questions. Because it is so common, over time I have developed somewhat of a standard speech for patients that answers the most common questions and concerns. This is what I usually say:
The good news is…breast pain is almost never associated with breast cancer. Cancer almost always presents as a painless lump in the breast. Having said that, we don’t like to take any chances and we fully investigate the cause of the breast pain. Once we have completely evaluated the cause of the pain, and if we find nothing concerning with the history, the physical examination, and the imaging findings (mammogram and ultrasound), we are as certain as we can be that there is nothing to worry about from a cancer screening standpoint.
The bad news is…breast pain is not easily treated. There is one proven, tried and true therapy that will relieve some of the pain…anti-inflammatory pain relievers such as ibuprofen or naproxen (Advil or Aleve). However, there are many patients that cannot and or should not take these medications so check with your referring physician first. There are a couple of other therapies that vary in their effectiveness depending on the patient. Some patients swear that eliminating or cutting back on caffeine intake significantly reduces or eliminates the pain while others say it has no effect. Some patients also report benefit from vitamin E supplementation while others do not. Of all of the therapies that I have heard patients try, these are the only ones that are consistently mentioned to me to provide relief.
There are always specific questions and I do my best to answer them. After all questions have been answered I always like to express one final thought…I am always happy to have a patient investigate any breast concern no matter how “small” or “trivial” that a patient may think it is…because you never know…and in this field it can never hurt to exercise a little caution.
