Residency Program

Prospective Residents

Radiology and nuclear medicine are two of the most exciting specialties in medicine today. Our ability to look into the human body has revolutionized modern medicine. Advances in computed tomography, MRI, ultrasound, PET, SPECT, interventional radiology, digital imaging and computer manipulation of diagnostic image continue to improve the accuracy of diagnoses and treatment of our patients. Marked advances in interventional techniques and radionuclide therapies are providing safer and more cost-effective treatment.
