Radiology is a challenging and exciting field that is rapidly evolving. 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 use imaging guidance to perform biopsies, arthrograms, and drainage procedures. Others do more advanced therapies and procedures such as using catheters and drains to treat obstructions or treat atherosclertoci disease or use ultrasound to diagnose such conditions as deep venous thrombosis and cholecystitis
In addition to educating medical students, graduates, and post-graduate residents, the Department of Radiology provides the highest quality clinical services in Diagnostic Radiology, Nuclear Medicine, Radiation Oncology, Health Physics, and Medical Physics to our affiliated Military and Federal facilities. We also conduct laboratory and clinical research in Biomedical Imaging, Radiobiology, Teleradiology, Radiation Oncology, Digital Imaging, and Computer Assisted Instruction.
