NightShift Radiology Announces Ananthakrishna Chilukuri, M.D. as Newest Partner Physician
NightShift Radiology, a national teleradiology practice committed to supporting community-based radiologists, today announced Ananthakrishna Chilukuri, M.D. as the newest physician to join its growing team. Dr. Chilukuri is Board Certified by the American Board of Radiology.
"We continuously seek the best talent in the field to join our practice, reinforcing our position as a trusted partner to community-based radiology groups," said Dr. Michael Myers, co-founder of NightShift Radiology. "Dr. Chilukuri's background will be an invaluable asset to the team as we continue to empower our clients to be as successful as possible. We are looking forward to having him contribute to the Nightshift family."
Dr. Chilukuri served his diagnostic radiology residency at MSU Flint Area Medical Education in Flint, MI. He completed an internship with the Swedish Covenant Hospital in Chicago, IL and earned his M.D. from Finch University of Health Sciences in Chicago, Illinois. Dr. Chilukuri also completed a fellowship in body imaging at William Beaumont Hospital in Royal Oak, MI.
NightShift Radiology is dedicated to being a trusted partner to community-based radiologists by providing quality primary interpretations as opposed to final reads. The practice remains committed to their partner radiologists and emphasizes the importance of local radiologists maintaining the responsibility of final reads. Nightshift's highly-experienced physicians are located across the United States and most have received fellowship or Certificate of Added Qualification (CAQ) training.
"I am excited to be joining NightShift Radiology and being a part of the company's growth and commitment to client's businesses," said Dr. Chilukuri. "Joining a practice that operates with radiologist's interests in mind, rather than those of investors, is important to me, and I am honored to be a part of this team."
NightShift radiologists are employed full-time and are U.S.-based. The company has been in business for more than a decade and has provided 3 million+ reads throughout its history.
