History of Firsts….

Nebraska’s First Radiology Practice

In 1931, D. Arnold Dowell, MD and James F. Kelly, Sr., MD formed Nebraska’s first radiology practice. Through affiliations with Creighton University, St. Joseph Hospital and St. Catherine's Hospital (which became Archbishop Bergan Mercy Hospital), their practice grew.

In 1969, Radiology Consultants became incorporated, officially becoming the largest private radiology practice in the metropolitan Omaha/Council Bluffs area.

Nebraska’s First Outpatient Imaging Center

In 1985, Radiology Consultants began construction on an independent diagnostic imaging facility, which opened in 1986 as the only free-standing, fully-equipped office of its kind in the state of Nebraska.


In 2007, Radiology Consultants merged with Midwest Medical Imaging to become Radiology Consultants of the Midwest, P.C., boasting 26 Board-certified radiologists.

With 21 fellowship-trained, Board-certified radiologists and two Board-certified nuclear physicians, Radiology Consultants of the Midwest offers each patient exceptional expertise in the fields of:

  • Abdominal imaging
  • Breast imaging
  • Musculoskeletal imaging
  • Neuroimaging
  • Nuclear medicine/molecular medicine
  • Pediatrics
  • Vascular and interventional radiology

Nebraska’s First Private Practice with an Academic Mission

Following Alegent’s acquisition of Creighton University’s medical center in 2012, Radiology Consultants of the Midwest acquired a new academic mission: To help train tomorrow’s radiologists by working closely with Creighton University School of Medicine. Radiology Consultants of the Midwest offers Creighton radiology residents access to a high volume of clinical cases and clinical expertise in each of the radiology sub-specialties. Additionally, Radiology Consultants of the Midwest’s radiologists provide regular lectures to medical students and residents at Creighton University School of Medicine.

As health care and the field of radiology continue to rapidly evolve, Radiology Consultants of the Midwest will focus on its future “firsts.”
