The VCU Department of Radiology is dedicated to providing patients with the highest standard of care and innovative procedures. Through our exciting clinical, technological, education and research initiatives, the Department remains at the forefront of academic radiology departments.
We continue to build on our commitment to clinical excellence with state-of-the-art equipment. Advanced technology is available in all modalities, including breast imaging, computed tomography (CT), magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), fluoroscopy, interventional radiology, nuclear medicine and ultrasound.
We demonstrate a strong commitment to educational initiatives to attract outstanding residents who graduate at the top of their medical school classes. Upon completion of the program, competitive fellowships and leading medical practices in the U.S. recruit our residents. The Department sponsors eight to ten fellowships each year in a variety of subspecialties.
Recognized both nationally and internationally, our faculty radiologists have expertise in a wide range of procedures from breast imaging to interventional radiology and neuroradiology to nuclear medicine. Our specialty-trained radiologists are leaders in innovative techniques, such as uterine fibroid embolization and fetal MRI.
