Emergency Service Line

The Emergency Radiology Service Division at the University of Arizona provides in-house attending radiologist service to our UArizona Emergency Department and patients at Banner University Medicine -Tucson and Banner University Medicine - South hospital campuses. Our emergency radiology team has expertise in trauma and acute care imaging needed for the most time-sensitive, critically sick patients.

Recently established in 2019, Emergency Radiology is a busy service covering all imaging modalities. The team provides timely final reports and prides themselves for being on-site and available for consultation. Emergency Radiology added a Neuroradiologist in 2020 and is recruiting for another to provide subspecialty neuroradiology and stroke perfusion final interpretations. 

Highlights

  • Prioritization of acute imaging to provide the best patient care
  • Earlier detection of critical findings 
  • Collaboration with clinical care team
  • Consistent Emergency Department supervision
