On behalf of the Department of Radiology in the College of Medicine and the Wexner Medical Center of The Ohio State University, I welcome you to our Web site. As you review the following pages, you will note that the Department of Radiology supports a dynamic program pioneering advances and promoting excellence in patient care, research, and education.
As an imaging-subspecialized Department of Radiology in a leading-edge academic medical center and university, we are able to provide excellent training for fellows, residents, medical students, graduate students, and post-doctorates. The unique strengths of the Department of Radiology in basic and applied imaging research, and the depth and diversity of patient-focused clinical imaging, provide an outstanding environment for those interested in preparing for either a clinical career or an academic career in the Radiology/Imaging Sciences.
Underlying the academic mission of the Department of Radiology is a visionary and diverse investigative portfolio that includes: 7.0T MRI of deep brain mapping in the Wright Center of Innovation in Biomedical Imaging; the study of cancer prevention at the molecular-level by the Section of Radiobiology; development of high-resolution MR elastography of myocardial stiffness in disease; multi-energy CT characterization of joint diseases; application of advanced Interventional Oncology procedures; and assessment of the impact of evidence-based imaging appropriateness criteria on outcomes by the Division of Imaging Informatics. These initiatives allow us to leverage state-of-the-art resources and services into innovative developments that benefit local, state, national, and global communities in such areas as cancer, cardiovascular, and neurologic diagnosis and treatment. We anticipate that our preclinical studies in cellular and molecular imaging, including physics research on optimization of high-field MR instrumentation, will greatly impact the detection and treatment of a variety of diseases.
The Department of Radiology’s vision is to “create the future of medicine – one person at a time.” We invite you to learn more about our efforts towards this vision in the pages that follow.
