RDIC was created over 25 years ago to provide top quality, state-of-the-art digital scanning services, dental professionals at their offices. It is a full spectrum imaging center that strives to support the dentist in many phases of the patient’s care.
At Radiology & Dental Imaging Centers (RDIC), we utilize the latest state of the art equipment available, which permits the lowest radiation dose possible, while producing the clearest, highest detailed images available. We have only highly trained Wisconsin licensed and ARRT registered Rdaiologic Technologists who specialize in cone beam technology and radiation safety.
Our Wauwatosa location also provides two-dimensional dental imaging, orthodontic analyses and duplication services. RDIC is proud to say, we are the only SimPlant Master site in the state of Wisconsin.
Along with our Wauwatosa site RDIC also has a Mobile Imaging Center, housed inside a customized-luxurious Mercedes van. The Mobile Imaging Center is designed to offer NewTom CBCT scans and Cadent Invisalign services to doctors and serve as an extension of their office. This convenient imaging center brings doctors immediate access to the latest technology right to their doorstep. By adding RDIC to your practice, you gain a full imaging laboratory without the expensive cost of the latest technology. A call today to RDIC puts the best imaging equipment, and a friendly, licensed radilogic technologist at your doorstep.
The RDIC Team
Gina Cifaldi, R.T. (R)
Director of Radiology
“Interacting with patients and doctors has provided a true sense of satisfaction and accomplishment,” according to Gina Cifaldi. “I absolutely love my job and delivering personalized quality care. That’s why I take time to educate each patient on every aspect of an exam. My goal is to make the patient feel as comfortable and informed as possible.”
Gina Cifaldi entered the health sciences field in 2002, working in Infectious Control for the Milwaukee Health Department. In 2004, she became a lab assistant in Microbiology for Aurora Clinical Laboratories. In a continued effort to grow in the health sciences field, she entered Milwaukee Area Technical College (MATC) and in 2006 earned her Applied Associates in Sciences degree in Radiologic Technology from MATC. That led to a career as an X-Ray Technologist at Aurora St. Luke’s Radiology Department. In addition, she assisted surgeons in the operating room using fluoroscopic imaging during surgical, orthopedic, critical care and emergency care procedures.
In 2009, she joined Radiology and Dental Imaging Centers (RDIC) as the Director of Radiology. Gina completed her Bachelor of Science degree in Biology from the University of Kentucky in 2011 and is presently working on her Master of Science degree in Organizational Leadership and Quality. RDIC is the only SimPlant Master Site in Wisconsin today.
Gina is one of two SimPlant conversion experts at RDIC. She loves working with dentists, helping them provide the best care for their patients possible with a virtual map to ensure the finest possible treatment plan. Gina stays current with technological advancements in the industry. She finds continuing education vital in order to stay on top of her field. She earns continuing education credits by reading medical articles, which allows her to be registered with the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists (ARRT). Gina is also a Licensed Radiographer by the State of Wisconsin. She keeps current with the State of Wisconsin Department of Health and Family Services to ensure RDIC follows all exposure guidelines. Safety is a top priority and is monitored daily.
Giving back to the community is important to Gina. That’s why she became a certified Emergency Medical Technician. After 9/11, she became a Certified Emergency Response Team Trainer to assist the city in the event of a disaster. She is also an active member in her church and in the community as a Girl Scouts of America leader. In her spare time, she enjoys renovating and remodeling her home, cooking, gardening, outdoor activities and spending time with her husband and family.
“Your work is going to fill a large part of your life, and the only way to be truly satisfied is to do what you believe is great work. And the only way to do great work is to love what you do.” –Steve Jobs

RDIC’s home office is conveniently located in Wauwatosa and is equipped with an i-CAT Flex® Cone Beam Computerized Tomography (CBCT) scanner to offer the latest technology in three-dimensional imaging.Imaging Sciences i-CAT
The i-CAT’s Cone Beam 3-D Dental Imaging System provides high-definition, digital imaging at reduced cost with less radiation to the patient and a typical scan time between 5 and 40 seconds with a x-ray source on only 2-15 seconds.. The i-CAT’s computer-controlled software delivers quick and easy reconstruction of critical anatomical information typically in under one minute.
Blending innovation with patient comfort, the i-CAT Cone Beam 3-D Imaging System produces immediate three-dimensional images of patients’ critical anatomy. The i-CAT provides complete views of all oral and maxillofacial structures in an easy to use viewer that allows doctors to dramatically enhance their patient care in a variety of ways.
I-CAT features an open environment seated position, a typical scan time of only 20 seconds or less, and significantly lower radiation doses compared to traditional CT scans. The result is a dramatic increase in patient comfort. In addition, the immediate three-dimensional reconstruction of a patient’s mouth, face, and jaw areas enhances doctor/patient communication by allowing doctors to share a visual diagnosis with their patients. This gives patients a better understanding of their treatment options and more confidence when going into treatment.
The i-CAT’s high-definition, advanced imaging technology can be used by a variety of specialists, including orthodontists, periodontists, oral surgeons, implantologists, TMJ specialists, and general dentists. With a unique 3-D mapping tool, specialists and technicians are able to format and select desired tooth slices for immediate viewing and further analysis. The 3-D reconstruction gives doctors the opportunity to more thoroughly analyze bone structure, tooth orientation, and joint space, and to detect and evaluate deformities and pathologies. Our Wauwatosa location also provides two-dimensional dental imaging, orthodontic analyses and duplication services. RDIC is proud to be the only SimPlant Master site in the state of Wisconsin.
