Welcome to the Department of Radiology at the Medical College of Wisconsin.  The Department is dedicated to providing high-quality, patient-centered subspecialty clinical care, advancing basic science, translational and clinical imaging research, and training the next generation of radiologists and imaging scientists.

The Department of Radiology provides clinical service to Froedtert Hospital, Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin, and the Zablocki V.A. Medical Center.  In July 2017, we will also begin service at Community Memorial Hospital and St. Joseph’s Hospital in West Bend.  We provide ambulatory imaging services at a number of CDI locations as well as F&MCW Community Physician medical centers throughout Southeastern Wisconsin.  On October 1, 2016, we began providing 24/7 in-house subspecialty radiology coverage for our adult patients.  We have developed an Emergency Radiology section that provides emergency radiology expertise overnight for the Froedtert Hospital system.  Our eight sub-specialty sections provide coverage during the day and the evenings and provide backup coverage overnight.  Our Pediatric Radiologists are responsible for pediatric imaging studies at all times for both Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin and some Froedtert Health sites.  We have a strong clinical quality program throughout our practice and both Froedtert Hospital and Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin have been recognized by the American College of Radiology as Diagnostic Imaging Centers of Excellence.

Our faculty perform research in many areas of radiology, but primarily focus on translational research to bring innovations to our clinical practice and patients.  In particular, our imaging scientists have helped transform the care of patients with brain tumors, prostate cancer, and orthopedic hardware.  In addition, a number of our investigators are intimately involved with the traumatic brain injury research program at MCW, which is one of the largest and best known in the country.  Our Vascular and Interventional Radiology Division is a leader in performing clinical trials that investigate minimally invasive techniques that advance the care of vascular diseases and new image guided oncologic therapies. 

Our training programs develop the next generation of radiologists in diagnostic radiology, neuroradiology, vascular interventional radiology, abdominal/body radiology, musculoskeletal radiology, breast imaging, cardiothoracic radiology, and pediatric radiology.  Our Imaging Sciences faculty train graduate students and post-doctoral fellows in biophysics and biomedical engineering.  A number of our faculty are intimately involved in medical student education and several have consistently received teaching awards for their work.

I hope you enjoy visiting our website and learning more about the dedicated faculty and staff who make the Department of Radiology at MCW such an outstanding place for clinical care, research and education.
