The CT, Nuclear Medicine (including PET/CT, SPECT/CT), ultrasound, and angiography equipment are state of the art. Biopsies and therapeutic interventions are performed utilizing all imaging modalities.

The department has an outstanding basic and translational research program utilizing nano and molecular medicine. The department is internationally known for fundamental basic radio-pharmaceutical research and past discoveries of Tc-99m HMPAO (Ceretec) for brain imaging and Sm-153 EDTMP (Quadramet) for therapy of metastatic bone cancer.  

Fellowships are offered in breast imaging, neuroradiology, and pediatric radiology.
