UW School of Medicine is a top program, with UW Hospital ranked #1 in Washington.  The Department of Radiology is committed to a culture of diversity, inclusion, and equity in patient care, education, and discovery.  Our department has 160 clinical and research faculty including physicians, physician assistants, advanced registered nurse practitioners, and scientists, and 109 residents, fellows, and post-doctoral students.  We have an incredibly talented staff and leadership team.  We provide services to the Pacific Northwest (WWAMI - Washington, Wyoming, Alaska, Montana, and Idaho), but also to patients from all other states, Canada, Asia, Africa, and other regions of the world.  We are recognized for patient and family-centered care.  Our core value is to provide the best in care for every patient every time.  We are proud of our research endeavors, which aim at providing healthcare that is more accessible, less invasive, at a lower cost, and with optimal outcomes.  We are ranked # 13 in NIH funds among academic institutions.  Our valued educational programs are geared toward forming physicians and scientists who care deeply about our communities and see innovation as central to the challenges of the future.

The Abdominal Imaging Section consists of 18 faculty members and 9 fellows.  We are a large, diverse section with an extensive track record of academic success.  While all faculty members have experience with all aspects of abdominal imaging, dedication and expertise in their chosen clinical and research areas is encouraged and supported.  State of the art wide-detector and dual energy CT scanners, and 1.5T and 3T MR scanners perform all aspects of abdominal imaging.  Service expansion with the addition of a brand-new PET/MR scanner will provide ample opportunities for clinical and translational research.  Clinical ultrasound, including CEUS and elastography, is an active service that enjoys close relationships with all departments in the hospital. Fluoroscopy work includes the gamut of exams.  We have ample departmental and university resources for teaching and research, including access to cutting edge technology from GE Healthcare and Philips Medical Imaging and protected academic time commensurate with funding.
