The Department of Diagnostic Imaging has a long tradition of providing leading edge diagnostic imaging and interventional services for our patients, while training the next generation of radiologists, and performing research in medical imaging.
Department of Diagnostic Imaging includes faculty with fellowship training in the following subspecialty areas:
- Body Imaging
- Neuroradiological Imaging
- Breast Imaging and Intervention
- Ultrasound Imaging
- Thoracic Imaging
- Cardiac Imaging
- Interventional Radiology
- Musculoskeletal Imaging and Intervention
- Nuclear Medicine Imaging
Department of Diagnostic Imaging physicians and staff provide continuous diagnostic and interventional services and support for our inpatient and outpatient facilities, which include UConn John Dempsey Hospital and the UConn Medical Group (UMG). Department of Diagnostic Imaging offers state-of-the-art magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), computed tomography (CT), ultrasound, digital radiography, mammography, and nuclear medicine imaging. Other equipment highlights include 3D mammography (Tomosynthesis), advanced imaging techniques for musculoskeletal, body, and neuroradiologic imaging (e.g., DTI, spectroscopy, liver elastography, pelvic floor, and prostate imaging), and breast MRI with MR guided biopsy capability.
Our Interventional Radiology Division performs a full complement of diagnostic and therapeutic services for vascular and body cases. In addition, musculoskeletal interventional services are performed for pain control, biopsy, and ablation.
We also offer low dose lung cancer screening services and a wide array of fluoroscopy and nuclear medicine imaging, including SPECT and PET/CT.
Department of Diagnostic Imaging is home to a diagnostic radiology residency. Our teaching faculty provides progressive learning opportunities with graduated responsibilities in an environment of collegiality and camaraderie that extends well beyond residency training. Residents are also afforded exploration in teaching, research, and leadership to complement their imaging science curriculum.
In addition, there are undergraduate and graduate medical education programs for non-radiology residents and medical students.
Department of Diagnostic Imaging has active research in clinical and translational science disciplines. A full complement of ancillary services is available for research support. Faculty members conduct research using an interdisciplinary approach enhancing opportunities to make significant contributions in medical science and the care of our patients.
