The VCU Department of Radiology's emergency radiology section is an active clinical and academic service. Our radiologists are responsible for the 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.
We interpret a wide range of radiological examinations performed through the emergency department including:
- Cardiothoracic and abdominal imaging
- Various modalities including plain radiography, computed tomography, magnetic resonance imaging, and ultrasound
The VCU Department of Radiology offers a one-year fellowship in emergency radiology focusing on the full range of imaging in the emergency department setting. The fellowship includes not only imaging of trauma patients but also those with medical and non-traumatic surgical conditions. In addition to time in the emergency radiology section, the fellow will spend time in neuroradiology, abdominal imaging and cardiothoracic radiology, focusing on interpretation and management of ER-related conditions.Learn More About Our Fellowship
