• Research

    Medical Imaging researchers are involved in a continuous cycle of applied imaging science that brings together all stages of research from discovery science to clinical therapeutics or diagnostics ready for use in the clinic.

  • Nuclear Medicine

    Nuclear medicine is a form of molecular imaging that offers unique insights into the physiology of many types of disease such as cancer and enables physicians to personalize patient care.

  • Peds

    We provide the most advanced, comprehensive, and compassionate care to pediatric patients in Arizona and the Southwest United States, with medical imaging needs from head to toe.

  • Education

    The Department of Medical Imaging participates in medical training and education at all levels including radiology residents, fellows, medical students and graduate students from UArizona science colleges such as Optical Sciences and Engineering.

  • Research Division Medical Imaging

    Our Research Division is renowned for pioneering work in medical imaging technology and image science. Our scientists provide expertise in MRI, CT and other X-ray Imaging, Ultrasound, PET and SPECT, Contrast Agents, Molecular Imaging and Optical Imaging.

  • Breast Imaging and Screening

    We provide state-of-the-art 3-D mammography screening and diagnostic testing. Our doctors work closely with our research team on innovative imaging technology for the early diagnosis of breast cancer.

  • Clinical Excellence

    The Department of Medical Imaging is a vital part of the University of Arizona, College of Medicine - Tucson. We proudly partner with Banner University Medicine to provide excellent clinical care.

Message from the Department Chair

Welcome to the Department of Medical Imaging (DMI) at the University of Arizona.  DMI is a vital part of the College of Medicine-Tucson. We are fortunate to work with Banner University Medicine with a level-one trauma center and with many University of Arizona collaborative research facilities. Our team is comprised of subspecialty trained Radiologists and PhD scientists, many of whom are nationally recognized experts in their field.  

Together, our team is building upon the excellence of the past and propelling the Department of Medical Imaging toward a future of distinction with a continued commitment to serve our patients, referrers, and the broader community.

Medical Imaging Researcher Dr. Russell Witte Receives New Grant

Dr. Witte has been awarded $3,434,477 from the National Institute of Biomedical Imaging and Bioengineering to develop the first safe, real-time and high resolution system for mapping electricity in the human brain. The Transcranial Acoustoelectric Brain Imaging (tABI) that will be developed by Dr. Witte’s team aims at transforming our understanding of normal brain function and help diagnose, monitor, and treat a wide variety of neurologic, psychiatric, and behavioral disorders.
