Family of radiologists.

Three generations with an innovative spirit that have transformed radiology in Barcelona

Our history

Our history goes back to 1973 when Dr Rafael Salvador Monte, his wife Celina Tarrasón and their eldest son, Rafael, founded the Radiological Cabinet of Dr. Salvador; a pioneering Radiological Center in Barcelona. They brought from Europe the most cutting-edge knowledge and the most innovative technical advances, to offer a diagnosis of the image highest quality, rigour and safety.


The youngest son, Manuel, with only 14 years old followed closely the latest medical advances next to his father. He grew up surrounded by renowned doctors, until he joined the center's medical team as Dr. Manuel Salvador.


The two brothers, Dr. Manuel Salvador and Dr. Rafael Salvador, eminences in radiology, would take over in 1999 to create the center Imagine Barcelona.


Currently, Dr. Manuel Salvador is the Medical Director of the center and his son, Manuel Salvador, the General Director. Together they have made the project grown with a great vision for the future based on specialization, the vocation of service for health and prevention and ehealth.

A trajectory with over 50 years guarantees the tranquility and safety of our patients.

We have pioneered many technical goals of radiology at state level, being the first to implement diagnostic tests such as stereotactic (1992), the digitized mammography (1999) or tomosynthesis (2019), among others:
