Abdominal Image

MR Cholangiogram

The section of Abdominal Imaging is a multimodality subdivision of the department of Radiology with fellowship trained staff specializing in the interpretation of CT, MRI, and fluoroscopic studies. The department empoys state of the art technology with 16 and 64 row multidetector computed tomography scanners allowing rapid acquisition with nearly limitless reconstruction capabilities.  Instant coronal reformations are currently available on all abdominal and pelvic CT studies.  We have also acquired dual energy CT which may serve to significantly lower patient dose by reducing the number of scan phases with maintenance of accuracy in diagnosis.

Siemens Avanto 1.5 Tesla and 3.0 Tesla magnets are installed in our MRI section.  Their revolutionary multichannel Tim coil technology allows the production of abdominal magnetic resonance images of a quality and resolution that are unsurpassed by any other facility in the world.  In addition to state of the art anatomic display, functional body imaging of the pancreatic and biliary dictal systems have been expanded. 

Clinical care of abdominal imaging patients is further impacted by active clinical involvement by abdominal radiologists in urinary, hepatobiliary and gastrointestinal tumor boards.  Close interaction with both the transplant and Hollings Cancer Center services by our subspecialty trained staff, who possess strong backgrounds in CT, MRI, and ultrasound, allows for a more tailored, precise management of these challenging patients.
