MRD History

Our History & Mission

Our History:

The medical radiology practice of Moran, Rowen & Dorsey, Inc. (MRD) has been in the forefront of imaging since 1961, establishing a long-standing reputation for excellence in diagnostic and interventional radiology throughout the greater Orange County area. Thomas Dorsey, MD, who co-founded MRD, was the pioneer in interventional radiology in Orange County.

MRD is the most sub-specialized group of its kind in the Southland and in 1998 completed its one millionth imaging study. MRD was first in Orange County to receive accreditation in both mammography and ultrasound; in addition, MRD is accredited in Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI).

Our practice includes over 20 radiologists providing care at our three outpatient facilities, as well as at St. Joseph Hospital and Children's Hospital of Orange County. All radiologists are board certified by the American College of Radiology and many are sub specialized in areas such as pediatric radiology, neuro-radiology, musculoskeletal MRI, mammography, nuclear medicine and interventional procedures. MRD also has the only board certified pediatric radiologists in Orange County providing dedicated pediatric care.

Our Mission:

Moran, Rowen & Dorsey, Inc. (MRD) will provide the highest quality, most medically appropriate diagnostic imaging examinations to our patients and their referring physicians in the most cost-effective manner possible. We will provide those examinations and their associated services in a personalized manner, always recognizing the value of patients' time and with respect for their personal dignity. We will process the patient and the associated reports in the most timely fashion and provide special assistance to patients in obtaining any benefits due them through their respective insurance and/or government assistance program.
