Better Imaging Today

Welcome to the University of Pittsburgh Department of Radiology. We are one of the nation’s largest and most productive academic radiology departments in the world, with nearly 200 dedicated clinical and research faculty. Our physicians practice in the hospitals and clinics of the UPMC, one of the nation’s outstanding health systems, honored repeatedly by U.S. News & World Report. The research program is currently one of the top funded radiology departments with over $10 million in funding. Our residency program is one of the largest programs in the country. The combination of sophisticated imaging equipment and highly trained researchers and clinicians ensures our success in both clinical and academic endeavors.

Construction of New Radiology Department Completed

The 2-year, $48 million Presbyterian University Hospital Department of Radiology construction project has finally been completed with spectacular results. The new department highlights the central role of academic subspecialist radiologists in quality health care delivery, allows for future growth in subspecialty consultation, facilitates education of future radiologists, and most importantly, improves the experience of both inpatients and outpatients during their brief stays in the department.

Improvements include-
• A more dignified, inviting, patient experience from registration through discharge.
• Large, state-of-the-art subspecialty-based reading rooms outfitted with IT infrastructure to support consultative services throughout UPMC and elsewhere, and located close to globally upgraded modalities that maximize direct interactions between radiologists, technical support staff and patients.
• A central educational area that contains a large multipurpose conference area, resident learning labs, PA/fellow offices and a resident lounge.
• Physician and administrative offices close to the clinical department.
