Meet Our Tech


Andy Buchanan

Andy attended MRI school at West Coast Ultrasound, X-Ray school at Kaplan College, and received his Medical Assistant License from Everest College.

Andy has also conducted case study research pertaining to the accuracy of low field MRIs and high field MRIs when looking for certain diagnoses. A few of his studies were presented at the Arthroscopic Association of North America (AANA) Annual Meeting and International Society of Arthroscopy, Knee Surgery and Orthopaedic Sports Medicine (ISAKOS) Congress.

Andy’s favorite part about his job as a MRI technologist is the opportunity to work with patients who need healing. When Andy is not working he enjoys spending time outdoors, fishing, camping, barbecuing, and spending time with his family.


I enjoy being a part of the healing process for my patients and giving them peace of mind that they will feel better soon, thanks to their MRI scan.
