The new physicians will specialize in mammography and teleradiology

Desert Radiology, a premier diagnostic imaging company that has served Southern Nevada for more than 50 years, announced that their Palomino corporate office located in the Las Vegas Medical District has expanded their team with the addition of two new radiologists, Dr. Roberto Martinez and Dr. Amir Paydar.

Dr. Martinez previously served as head of nuclear radiology for Delta Radiology in New Orleans, Louisiana. After Hurricane Katrina, Dr. Martinez and his family relocated to Las Vegas where he worked for Guam Radiology Consultants providing expertise in general radiology, nuclear medicine and breast imaging, including stereotactic and ultrasound guided biopsies before accepting a position with Desert Radiology.

Dr. Paydar was previously employed at a private practice in Orlando, Florida where he provided final interpretations on complex neuroradiology cases with a focus on head and neck imaging. Additionally, Dr. Paydar has participated in numerous clinical research studies, contributed to scholarly publications and has presented at several national radiological annual meetings.

Dr. Martinez will primarily focus on providing interpretations for the mammography exams and performing breast biopsies at Desert Radiology’s Palomino imaging center. Dr. Paydar will serve as a teleradiologist providing imaging interpretations and results.

Desert Radiology is Southern Nevada’s largest resource for diagnostic care with more than 80 experienced radiologists. The practice operates 11 outpatient imaging centers and works closely with 12 area hospitals to deliver leading-edge services that include diagnostic and interventional radiology.
