Our board-certified radiologists sub-specialize in abdominal, breast, cardiothoracic, gastrointestinal/genitourinary, musculoskeletal and neuro imaging.
In addition, we have board certified nuclear medicine physicians and interventional radiologists.
Abdominal Imaging encompasses all aspects of ultrasound, body computed tomography (CT) and body magnetic resonance imaging (MRI).
Ultrasound services include prenatal ultrasound, abdominal ultrasound, including the liver, gall bladder and kidney, as well as vascular ultrasound. Ultrasound units are capable of pulsed, color flow and power Doppler.
CT and MRI services include diagnostic studies of the abdomen and pelvis, as well as vascular studies including MRA. Additionally, ultrasound guided neck biopsies are also performed by the Abdominal Imaging Service.
The Breast Imaging section is located in the University of Colorado Breast Center, a multidisciplinary breast center at the new Anschutz Outpatient Pavilion (AOP).
Services at the Center include breast imaging, breast surgery, breast oncology, internal medicine, genetic counseling and specialized nursing.
The Breast Center performs an array of image guided percutaneous breast biopsies and needle localizations, including mammographic, sonographic, and MRI-guided.
The radiologists in breast imaging collaborate closely with specialists in other disciplines.
Interventional Radiology is minimally invasive surgery performed with the use of image guidance (CT scans, ultrasounds, and x-rays).
Interventional Radiology is less invasive than standard surgery because procedures are performed through small incisions made in the skin, using small catheters or tubes precisely placed into blood vessels and internal organs.
Since these procedures can be performed without large surgical incisions, the risks and recovery times are often significantly reduced.
Musculoskeletal imaging is a crucial tool in providing effective spine, orthopedic, rehabilitation, and other treatments. CT, MR, radiography, and ultrasound are tailored to clinical requirements.
Procedures offered to referral physicians include vertebroplasty and spinal injections, joint injection for therapeutic and diagnostic purposes, bone and soft tissue biopsy, and cryo and thermoablation of primary and metastatic bone and soft tissue lesions.
This subspecialty of radiology is devoted to the diagnostic imaging and diagnosis of the brain and nerves, head, neck and spine. This includes x-rays, CT (computed tomography or CAT), Ultrasound and MRI.
The hospital's Nuclear Medicine group performs all diagnostic and therapeutic examinations using radionuclides, including SPECT, advanced cardiac imaging, and bone densitometry.
Specialized studies performed include bone scans, thyroid scans and numerous other studies using radionuclides. We also offer PET (Positron Emission Tomography) scanning, one of the newest diagnostic tools.
Our thoracic imaging specialists provide imaging diagnosis of diseases of the chest. Services include computerized tomography (CT) scans of the chest, including high resolution chest CT and chest magnetic resonance imaging (MRI).
