Body Imaging

Two radiology technicians reading MRI images.

The subspecialty-trained radiologists in body imaging use various cross-sectional imaging methods, such as computed tomography (CT or CAT scan), magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and ultrasound, to diagnose disease and conditions found in the major organs of the chest, abdomen and pelvis. These organs include the heart, lungs, stomach, intestines, liver, pancreas, kidneys, bladder and all other organs found in the body. Organ-specific protocols for each imaging technique allow for targeted, highly detailed examinations.

Body imaging radiologists also perform image-guided diagnostic biopsies and aspirations.

The radiologists in this discipline work closely with primary care physicians, surgeons, pulmonologists, gastroenterologists, urologists and other specialists. Our body imaging experts help to diagnose diseases and provide consultation to ensure optimal treatment options are explored.
