Ultrasound Service, First Floor, Reynolds Tower and
Fourth Floor, Comprehensive Cancer Center

The ultrasound service of radiology is equipped with seven state-of-the-art high resolution real-time units.  All are capable of performing both imaging and spectral, color, and amplitude doppler flow studies.  All images are digital, and the section operates in filmless mode. The section also is a major division of the Center for Medical Ultrasound, a nationally recognized ultrasound teaching facility with ongoing programs throughout the year.

Nuclear Medicine, Main Floor, Reynolds Tower
PET Center, Ground Floor, MRI Building

The Nuclear Medicine Section has eight gamma cameras, including whole body, dual and triple-headed SPECT units; an integrated medical computer system; and an in-house radiopharmacy.  The PET Center, includes a cyclotron, research PET scanner, a research positron emission mammography (PEM) device, and a clinical PET/CT scanner.

MRI Center, First Floor, MRI Building

The Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) Center operates six state of-the-art high-field clinical magnetic resonance imaging units, one of which is cardiac optimized, three of which have parallel imaging, and one which operates at 3T.  There is an additional unit dedicated to research.  There is also a clinical 3T magnetic resonance imaging unit and PET/CT scanner in the Department of Radiation Oncology and a small animal unit in the Nutrition Center.

Center for Biomolecular Imaging

Department of Biomedical Engineering

Systems Integration
Departmental operations are managed by an automated radiology information system (RIS) with functions that include scheduling, patient and film folder tracking, transcription, electronic report approval, and teaching codes.  The RIS is connected to the hospital information system (HIS), which offers order entry and reporting capabilities.

A department-wide office automation system (GAS) supports users with central access to functions such as electronic mail, word processing, databases, spreadsheets, and connectivity into other computing systems.

The department is filmless with AGFA picture archiving and communication system (PACS).  Stentor systems communicate the images to the extended network.

A TeraRecon system allows physicians to perform color-rendered multiplanar and 3-dimensional reformations of image data in real-time at home, in the office, or at any clinical workstation.  Multiple advanced image processing workstations for functional MRI, perfusion measurements, cardiac scoring, and virtual endoscopy are also located at multiple locations throughout the department.
