These activities are conducted on state-of-the-art equipment. Currently, Radiology and Imaging Sciences operates six MRI scanners, three at 3 Tesla and two at 1.5 Tesla and one PET/MR.The CT scanners consist of 2 dual source CT and MDCT shared with NHLBI (Cardiology).
Diagnostic services in ultrasound, PET/CT, and nuclear medicine are additionally provided. All diagnostic modalities are linked to the department PACS system.
Clinical radiology services are provided to patients on clinical protocols originating either at the Clinical Center or from any of the NIH Institutes. Collaboration between Institute staff and radiologists in subspeciality areas produces high quality imaging examinations yielding outstanding results for NIH patients. Institute physicians and researchers should contact radiologists in the areas below for patient assistance and protocol preparation:
- Body Imaging (conventional x-ray, ultrasound, MRI and CT)
- Interventional Radiology (biopsy, minimally invasive therapy, angiography)
- Neuroradiology (CT and MRI studies of the neurologic system)
- Nuclear Medicine (SPECT, PET/CT, radionuclide imaging)
The Radiology Department is searching for qualified academically oriented Diagnostic Radiologists with expertise in the following: Body Imaging, Nuclear Medicine or Neuroradiology. Candidates should submit curriculum vitae and a preliminary statement of their interest to:
