Research Opportunities

Ultrasound printoutGiven how quickly the profession of radiology changes, UW Health considers a deep commitment to research as essential to maintaining a world-class radiology program.
University of Wisconsin researchers and radiologists regularly receive National Institute of Health, federal and private agency grants and are heavily involved in the development of new scanning techniques, protocols and procedures. Emphasis on research helps the radiology medical staff maintain a well-balanced research and educational program.
Areas of research focus include: 
  • Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and magnetic resonance angiography (MRA)
  • Computed tomography (CT)
  • Interventional radiology
  • Contrast agent development
  • Embolization techniques
  • Positron emission tomography (PET)
  • Advanced digital imaging methods
  • Neuroradiology interventions
  • Ultrasound
