The Department of Radiology has a stable force of 104 faculty in ten subspecialty divisions and many of our faculty are world-renowned for their contributions to research and education in radiology. Our faculty interpret more than 700,000 exams annually from our academic hospital and multiple community based hospitals and clinics. UW Health has invested significantly in our facilities and equipment over the past 10 years, and this commitment is evident throughout the stateof-the-art 80,000 sq. ft. clinical care area that we enjoy. Our research faculty collaborate closely with scientists on the UW campus and in the Department of Medical Physics in a 60,000 sq. ft. imaging sciences research center, part of the Wisconsin Institutes for Medical Research (WIMR). The imaging research center provides an unprecedented resource that translates innovation from bench to bedside and spans a scope from mouse to man. The center includes advanced MRI, CT, PET (including combined PET-MRI), cyclotron, radiochemistry, digital angiography, ultrasound, and magnetoencephalography systems for small animal, large animal and human research applications. Our industrial partners have provided state-of-the-art imaging equipment and access to research platforms for our scientists to create new imaging methods and applications. The imaging research center provides state-of-the-art laboratory, office, teaching, and interactive space for more than 250 Radiology and Medical Physics researchers.
