LAS VEGAS – Desert Radiology, a premier diagnostic imaging company that has served Southern Nevada for over 50 years, was named the official imaging partner for the Las Vegas Aces, Las Vegas’ first major professional basketball team today. Under the agreement, Desert Radiology will provide diagnostic care to the team administering magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), x-rays and CTs scans as well as other services, as needed.
“We aim to support our players and provide access to the best medical care in Southern Nevada,” said Bill Laimbeer, Las Vegas Aces President of Basketball Operations and Head Coach. “Desert Radiology shares our commitment to care for people and to support the community.”
The partnership with the Las Vegas Aces furthers Desert Radiology’s long-standing commitment of supporting professional and minor league sports and collegiate athletics.

Additionally, Desert Radiology has similar partnerships with the Las Vegas 51s and the athletic department at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas.
“This sponsorship reiterates our ongoing commitment to the Southern Nevada community,” said Richard Bodager, Chief Executive Officer of Desert Radiology. “We’re honored to be able to provide quality diagnostic care to the talented players of the Las Vegas Aces.”
