Meet Your Care Team

Our care navigators, radiologists, managers and directors are aligned by one mission: thorough and compassionate patient care

Breast Health Navigators

Our care navigators help guide patients through the healthcare system. This includes help going through the screening, diagnosis, treatment, and follow-up of a medical condition, such as cancer.

I have been working at Minneapolis Radiology since 2009.  Over the years, I have enjoyed providing comfort and care to our patients and their families.  I think it is so important to establish a connection and be that familiar voice or face.

In my free time I enjoy cheering on my son in his sporting events; lacrosse, baseball and golf.  I also enjoy outdoor activities, water sports, running and nutrition.

I started working for Minneapolis Radiology (MRA) when this Maple Grove location first opened in December 2007, but I have worked with the MRA radiologists since 1992.

I am The Breast Center supervisor, a mammography tech and a breast health patient navigator.  I really enjoy the variety that I get on a daily basis and I love connecting with my patients and helping them in any way that I can through their imaging and breast procedures.

I spend my free time with my family and friends. My husband and I have 2 grown children.  We love watching hockey, water sports and spending time outside! We are a very adventurous and on the go family.  I also have a secret love of Hallmark movies!

I starting with Minneapolis Radiology (MRA) in June 2021, but I have been in the medical field for about 10 years prior to joining MRA.

What I enjoy most about my job is working one on one with patients and being able to comfort them throughout the entire process.

In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my husband and our 2 kiddos Alec and Emma. During the warmer months, you can find us out on the lake either fishing, tubing or swimming. I also enjoy running in my free time too and always trying to improve my run times for the next 5K, 10K or half-marathon.

Radiologists

The doctors of Minneapolis Radiology work in partnership with our clinical colleagues to ensure patients the most accurate diagnoses, enabling the most effective treatment. Accurate and timely reporting and consultation are our top priority in working with our referring physicians.

Leadership

Our leadership team ensures that each interaction is caring and compassionate. We use our expertise to perform and interpret medical imaging exams every day.

Tori Badger, R.T. (R)(M)
Clinic Manager

I began working at Minneapolis Radiology in 2007. I have experience in several areas of radiology- mammography, general radiography, and CT. I have been the clinic manager for The Breast Center of Maple Grove, Imaging Centers of Maple Grove & Plymouth since 2013. I have always enjoyed working with patients to help make their exam as comfortable and easy as possible. Now that I am a manager, I miss direct interaction with patients but I hope I can influence decisions that truly make a positive difference for them.

When I am not working, I enjoy relaxing with friends and family, spending time on the lake, and traveling as much as possible.
