Radiology

  • Division of Cardiovascular and Pulmonary Imaging

    The chest division deals with all aspects of chest imaging including CT guided chest/lung biopsies, CT aortic and coronary angiography and opportunities for MRI cardiac and aortic imaging. Clinical responsibilities include plain film and digital chest radiography of inpatients and outpatients as well as imaging of the surgical, cardiac, and medical intensive care units. Facilities include several new spiral CT scanners with some equipped with CT fluoroscopy. Using a new dual source CT, the division in collaboration with cardiology provides full CTA coronary angiography, including coronary calcium quantification and complete functional analysis of heart morphology and function. State of the art workstations and software also enable our radiologists to perform CAD analysis of radiographs for nodules as well as volumetric and growth assessment of lung nodules.
