Department of radiology and Radiological Science


The division of ultrasound performed approximately 18,500 exams last year. We provide ultrasound services at Ashley River Tower (ART) and the main hospital.  We perform approximately 1,800 interventional procedures.  The types of interventional procedures we offer are variable ranging from lymph node and soft tissue biopsies, to fine needle aspiration of thyroid  lesions and drainages. Each request is individually tailored to the specific concern of the ordering physician.

Research interests include transplants and musculoskeletal ultrasound.
