Department of Diagnostic Imaging and Therapeutics

The Department of Diagnostic Imaging and Therapeutics provides clinical services in diagnostic radiology, interventional radiology, ultrasound, vascular laboratory, cross sectional imaging (CT scan and magnetic resonance imaging), nuclear medicine and radiation oncology. Several of our services are provided by unique centers of excellence formed through partnerships with other departments. These include the Microvascular Imaging Laboratory with the Department of Ophthalmology, the Temporal Mandibular Joint MRI Service with the Department of Oral Radiology and the Bone Density Service with the Department of Endocrinology. There are also several cooperative interdepartmental activities with the Department of Surgery, including the Vascular Laboratory, a Breast Core Biopsy Program and ultrasound-guided intraoperative tumor ablation. In addition, radiology services are provided to nearly 15,000 inmates in 21 facilities throughout the state of Connecticut through the Correctional Managed Care Program.

In addition to its clinical services, the Department of Diagnostic Imaging and Therapeutics has two research divisions: Research in Imaging for Diagnostic Medicine and the Biomolecular Structure Analysis Center. Exciting initiatives are underway in these areas, including the development of a Digital Diagnostic Imaging Center, a joint research initiative in functional MRI with the psychiatry and neurology departments, the development of an X-ray extensometer that will allow the identification of breast tissue using monochromatic X-ray energy and two new X-ray sensors.

An added benefit of our joint clinical ventures is the participation of faculty from the School of Dental Medicine and other areas in the School of Medicine in teaching and research activities that enrich the educational experience and create a multidisciplinary collaborative research environment. Special emphasis is placed on the teaching of medical students both during a monthly rotation in the department and as part of their regular yearly curriculum. An exceptional educational tool was developed this year with the Department of Pathology in which radiologic exams were digitized and correlated with pathologic findings into a Radiology/Pathology Museum.

We hope you find this website to be a helpful tool. Please do not hesitate to call the Department of Diagnostic Imaging and Therapeutics at 860-679-2784 for more information.
