Message from the Section Chief

Welcome to the section of emergency radiology. We work with the Department of Emergency Medicine and various other departments at VCU Health to quickly and accurately assess injuries and acute illnesses. It is both challenging and exceedingly rewarding to use our expertise in solving the most complex and urgent patient cases. ~ Yang Tang M.D., Ph.D.

Overview

The VCU Department of Radiology's emergency radiology section is an active clinical and academic service responsible for interpretation of emergency imaging at VCU Health and its affiliated Level 1 Trauma Center and comprehensive stroke center.

We work closely with the VCU Department of Emergency Medicine and the Division of Trauma and Acute Care Surgery in the VCU Department of Surgery, as well as a number of other clinical services that are involved in emergent patient care. We also offer an emergency and trauma radiology elective for medical students.

In addition to time in the Emergency Radiology Department, the fellow will spend dedicated time in neuroradiology, abdominal imaging and cardiothoracic radiology, focusing on interpretation and management of ER-related conditions.
