Radiology was discovered a little more than 100 years ago and has evolved into a high-tech science with state-of-the-art equipment to aid in imaging every aspect of the body. The Department of Radiology provides an environment in which to train superior diagnostic radiologists, radiation oncologists, nuclear medicine physicians and imaging scientists capable of fully practicing all the areas of their specialty, in private or academic settings. Tulane University School of Medicine Departments of Radiology house the latest in technological advances and all participate in the dynamics of clinical research activities. Radiology offers both diagnostic and therapeutic services.
The following specialty areas of radiology include:
* Magnetic Resonance Imaging 1.5T (MRI)
* Computed Tomography (CT) 8 & 64 Slice Scanner
* Interventional Radiology
