The Department of Radiology offers a range of imaging services and performs more than 200,000 procedures annually. The department is staffed by 23 attending physicians supported by residents in a four-year diagnostic radiology program and a three-year nuclear medicine program. The Department of Radiology also offers a school in radiography.
The mission of the Department of Radiology is to provide:
- Innovative imaging services of high quality
- Timely, compassionate care
- An enriching educational environment
The radiology residency program exposes the resident to every phase of radiology and encourages a disciplined approach to medical problem solving. The program is structured to introduce each subdivision of radiology. Basic understanding of individual techniques is emphasized, followed by hands-on experience aimed at challenging the resident to accept increasingly greater responsibilities as the training program progresses.
In addition to conventional radiology and nuclear medicine, training is offered in computer science, related imaging technologies, angiography, and interventive radiology.
The department encompasses a specialized Biomedical Imaging Center which contains three high-field MRI scanners, one PET/CT scanner, and an 11 MeV cyclotron. Clinical facilities and electronic chemistry and research laboratories are available to further enrich the learning experience.
