Radiologists in Virginia and Maryland 

Our History

Radiology Imaging Associates, RIA was founded in 1977, by Joseph P. Finizio, M.D., and grew from its origins as the first radiology service provider at Southern Maryland Hospital Center, to an expanding Practice of over 200 physicians, technologists and staff supporting five full-service outpatient imaging centers throughout southern Maryland and northern Virginia. RIA takes pride in having established comprehensive imaging services in what were previously viewed as the remote suburbs.
