Our mission is to provide exceptional Abdominal Imaging services including radiography, fluoroscopy, ultrasound, computed tomography and magnetic resonance imaging. Our Division focuses on all aspects of Abdominal Imaging, with primary areas of emphasis including, but not limited to oncology, transplant and critical care imaging.
Our Division is staffed by 8 (full or part time) fellowship trained Abdominal/Body Imagers and 2 Fluoroscopy/Pediatric specialists. In addition to all routine and emergency cross sectional (ultrasound, CT and MRI) abdominal imaging, the Division performs/interprets all GI/GU fluoroscopy procedures. Along with daily clinical work, the Division participates in multiple weekly/biweekly multidisciplinary conferences (e.g. GI Tumor, GU Tumor, Hepatobiliary, Hepatoma).
Our Division participates in the Gastrointestinal, Genitourinary and Ultrasound core lecture series, provides 3 monthly scheduled didactic case conferences and will be implementing a daily Divisional case conference for Residents rotating on our 3 subdivisions (Fluoroscopy, Ultrasound and Abdominal CT/MR). A new formal orientation/evaluation process will be implemented to aid Residents as they rotate on our services. Our Fellowship program trains 1-2 motivated individuals per year in more advanced imaging interpretation/techniques and provides opportunities for research in Abdominal Imaging. 3rd and 4th year Medical Students can rotate through our Division under the direction of Dr. James Davidson.
Division members are actively involved in multiple research projects, publishing peer reviewed articles and abstracts, book chapters and presenting at national and international meetings. A partial list of ongoing projects includes: MRI Guided Interstitial Laser Ablation of Prostate Cancer, Exploring Perinatal Outcomes Among Children (EPOCH) and Development and Testing of a Volumetric Color Doppler Vascular Index to Predict the Performance of Radiofrequency Ablation Devices in Liver Tumors.
