Improving health by advancing radiological care, education and research
The University of Missouri School of Medicine Department of Radiology provides outstanding education to future radiologists, operates nationally recognized research programs, and offers patients and referring physicians access to advanced diagnostic imaging and image-guided therapies.
MU’s Department of Radiology includes a full complement of highly trained clinicians and researchers, successful training programs involving cutting-edge technologies and specialized clinical experiences, and a powerful research program that encompasses nano and molecular medicine. Research is conducted in partnership with MU’s Nuclear Research Reactor, the most powerful university reactor in the country. The department also operates Missouri Radiology Imaging Center, one of the most advanced resonance imaging facilities in the state.
The diagnostic radiology residency program at MU offers a clinical and academic experience that is fully accredited by the ACGME. Residents are trained in diagnostic radiology, including plain film diagnosis, ultrasound, computed topography (CT), magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), nuclear medicine, and interventional radiology. The Department of Radiology offers expanded educational opportunities in neuro-interventional and musculoskeletal radiology, mammography, pediatric radiology, and diagnostic radiology. The primary clinical institution is University of Missouri Health Care, which includes Ellis Fischel Cancer Center, but residents also rotate through Harry S. Truman Memorial Veterans’ Hospital.
