Our Education Programs
The Department of Radiology has 14 basic science faculty members belonging to one of two sections performing research in the imaging sciences. Within the Section of Imaging Sciences: Acquisition & Reconstruction, the research focuses on new acquisition methods for MRI and MRIS, advanced CT systems and imaging approaches, novel tomographic reconstruction methods, new methods for PET, SPECT, acoustic, and optical imaging, and developments of novel imaging instrumentation. Within the Section of Imaging Sciences: Analysis & Evaluation, the research interests include evaluation methodologies & ROC analysis, computer-aided diagnosis & computerized image analysis for the interpretation of a variety of medical images (such as breast, thoracic, colon, cardiac, skeletal & radioisotope images).
Excellence in image quality and innovation is our foundation. Interpretation and procedures performed by radiologists rated among the best in the nation builds upon that foundation, resulting in the high level of diagnostic and treatment quality that is our trademark. Patients are cared for by our team of receptionists, technologists, nurses and radiologists with a high level of respect and understanding.
The mission of the Wellness Committee of the Department of Radiology is to foster a culture of wellness through three pillars: personal resilience by supporting physical, mental and social health, ease of practice through improvement of workflow efficiency and continuous professional skills development. During the COVID-19 pandemic, emphasis has been placed on projects to supporting our front-line staff who put themselves at risk to ensure continuity of critical patient imaging.
