    The Department of Radiology provides state-of-the-art diagnostic imaging services for patients using computed tomography (CT), magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), nuclear medicine including radionuclide imaging and positron emission tomography (PET), ultrasonography (US), and conventional fluoroscopy and radiography (X- ray). The Department also performs a wide variety of therapeutic interventional procedures employing advanced image-guided techniques.
