Clinical Divisions

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

Our team provides expertise in the diagnosis and treatment of abdominal and pelvic disease. Our Body MR imaging specialization is the unique strength providing the foundation for our excellent clinical service.

We provide screening, diagnostic mammography, digital breast tomosynthesis (3D mammography) and ultrasound and Breast MRI is available on-site. Our breast imaging practice has been designated as "Center of Excellence" by the American College of Radiology.  We are proud to announce that our Banner Breast Imaging Team now has a dedicated Breast Scheduling Team.  The direct scheduling phone number for patient Breast Imaging needs:  520-694-9640

We provide advanced diagnostic imaging services, using the latest CT and MRI technology. Our board-certified subspecialty trained faculty members provide accurate interpretation of studies required for the evaluation of acute and chronic cardiovascular and pulmonary diseases.

The Emergency Radiology Service Division provides in-house attending radiologist service to our UArizona Emergency Department. We work together to provide the patients at Banner University Medicine -Tucson (BUMC-T) and Banner University Medicine - South (BUMC-N) the best critical care services. Our emergency radiology team has expertise in trauma and acute care imaging needed for the most time-sensitive, critically sick patients.

The Division of Interventional Radiology (IR) at the University of Arizona functions much like a surgical subspecialty team offering outpatient consultations, pre/post-visit coordination and inpatient care. Use of the latest, cutting-edge technologies and facilities allow the team to perform the entire range of vascular and nonvascular procedures to treat an exceptionally wide range of diseases and conditions in adult and pediatric patients. 

The Musculoskeletal (MSK) Imaging Division at the University of Arizona uses state of the art technology to provide excellence in patient care in all aspects of musculoskeletal imaging. The team provides advanced imaging and procedures to diagnose and treat patients with bone, joint and soft tissue disorders.

The Neuroradiology Division provides expert imaging and interventional therapy for diseases and characterization of abnormalities of the central and peripheral nervous system, spine and head and neck. Our team strives to use the best, shortest and most effective scanning techniques and MR protocols are standardized for improved throughput, scan quality and patient comfort levels.

The Nuclear Medicine Division uses small amounts of radioactive materials to image specific organ or system functions within the body. The same methods are used to treat disease, and to evaluate lung cancer, cancer of the head and neck, lymphoma and melanoma. Our vast array of exams search for disease at the molecular level in nearly every organ of the body.

The Pediatric Imaging Division at the Diamond Children’s Center is dedicated to clinical excellence in serving the special needs of children and their families. The team is steadfastly committed to accurate, thorough, and expedient imaging while minimizing medical radiation exposure to children.
