KINGMAN - Kingman Regional Medical Center has added radiologists Dr. Wade Alleman, Dr. Kale Bodily and Dr. Christopher Johansen to its medical staff. All three recently completed four-year residencies serving patients at the prestigious Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minn. They began serving patients in Kingman on July 1.
Radiology is a competitive field in medicine, and those who gain entrance in the field are often at the top of their medical school class. As Mayo-trained radiologists, Alleman, Bodily, and Johansen are skilled in the use of advanced medical imaging technology to detect and analyze disease and/or damage in internal organs, tissues and bone. Specifically, they specialize in interpreting X-rays, mammograms, ultrasounds, MRI scans, CT scans and nuclear medicine scans, including PET.
They are also skilled in image-guided medical procedures such as inserting catheters in veins, draining abscesses or performing biopsies, which can be much safer and faster with the aid of imaging technology.
Alleman attended medical school at the Mayo Clinic College of Medicine. He did his internship at Carilion Health System in Roanoke, Va., and residency in diagnostic radiology at the Mayo Clinic Graduate School of Medicine.
Bodily also attended medical school at the Mayo Clinic. He did his internship at LDS Hospital in Salt Lake City and residency in diagnostic radiology at the Mayo Clinic Graduate School of Medicine.
Johansen attended the University of Minnesota-Minneapolis School of Medicine. He did his internship at Deaconess Hospital in Spokane, Wash., and residency in diagnostic radiology at the Mayo Clinic Graduate School of Medicine.
He served as chief resident of the Mayo radiology program and was the Mayo representative to the Minnesota Radiologic Society.
The new radiologists will join with current KRMC radiologist Dr. Warren L. Mays in forming a new Kingman-based group, High Desert Radiology. Mays has more than 15 years experience in the field, with five years at KRMC. He did his residency in diagnostic radiology at St. Vincent's Hospital and Medical Center in New York City.
He also completed a fellowship in neurosurgery at Lincoln Hospital and Mental Health Center in the Bronx, N.Y.
