Clinical Divisions

At the University of Arizona Department of Medical Imaging, we are committed to working with medical, surgical and oncological clinical services, research and education by utilizing a variety of technical modalities (e.g., x-rays, ultrasound, CT, MRI) to detect, screen, diagnose and characterize diseases, as well as perform minimally invasive diagnostic and therapeutic procedures under imaging guidance.

As a department, we strive to provide cost-effective patient care using new technologies that promote and advance optimized healthcare.  Our goal is to diagnose diseases earlier, when treatments may be more effective or curative (such as cancers), with fewer tests, optimized and targeted procedures, shortened time to diagnosis, and faster time to treatment, leading to improved overall patient survival.
