Radiology is an exciting and rewarding field that is rapidly evolving. The Radiology specialty is far more than just people who sit in a dark room reading films all day; radiologists are responsible for a wide range of procedures and research. They are not just consultants to the clinical team but are also in a unique position to teach those in other medical fields. Radiologists often use imaging guidance to perform biopsies, arthrograms, and drainage procedures. Some radiologists do more advanced therapies and procedures such as using catheters and drains to treat biliary or renal obstructions, or placing endografts to treat atherosclerotic disease.
In addition to educating medical students, graduate students, residents and fellows, the Department of Radiology provides the highest quality academic clinical services in Diagnostic Radiology, Interventional Radiology, Nuclear Medicine, Radiation Oncology, Health Physics, Medical Physics and 3D Printing to our affiliated Military and Federal facilities. We also advance technology and medicine through laboratory and clinical research in Biomedical Imaging, Bioengineering, Advanced Image-Guided Therapeutics, and Artificial Intelligence/Machine Learning.
