Cardiothoracic Radiology constitutes a substantial proportion of the clinical imaging services provided by the Department of Radiology of the University of Michigan Health System. The Division of Cardiothoracic Radiology is responsible for the performance and interpretation of more than 100,000 chest radiographic examinations and 30,000 cardiothoracic CT and 1,200 cardiothoracic MR examinations every year.
We specialize in the application of advanced imaging technologies to specific diseases, with imaging protocols tailored to patient presentation and underlying disease processes.
State-of-the-art cardiac CT and MRI examinations, including stress MR techniques, are supervised and interpreted by division faculty members. Our Cardiothoracic Radiology Interventional Radiology Service performs percutaneous biopsies and drainage procedures, as well as radiofrequency ablation procedures for lung cancer and metastatic disease.
