Abdominal Imaging is a branch of radiology which provides imaging experience in abdominal and pelvic processes. At the very hub of the hospital and closely intertwined with the majority of medical and surgical subspecialty departments, the division of Abdominal Imaging is involved in diagnosis, treatment and response to treatment of abdominal and pelvic processes. Techniques for these processes include ultrasound, computed tomography, or CT scanning, magnetic resonance imaging, or MRI, gastrointestinal radiology and genitourinary radiology and image-guided biopsy. All imaging examinations are interpreted on a state-of-the-art picture archiving communication system, or PACS, called Visage.

As a tertiary referral facility and Level 1 trauma center, our radiologists provide top-notch, sub-specialty interpretations, and are committed to accurate diagnosis and quality treatment for patients at all our clinical sites.

Equipment at UF COMJ includes 64, and dual energy 256-slice channel scanners, multiple MRI magnets, including an open 1.2 Tesla (T), several 1.5 T and 3.0 T Siemens systems, and multiple ultrasound scanners. Gastrointestinal and genitourinary fluoroscopy is digital at all sites. A more comprehensive list of our imaging facilities and equipment can be found here.

Available magnetic resonance imaging programs include: MR enterography, for diagnosis and monitoring of inflammatory bowel disease; multiparametric prostate MRI, with US-MRI fusion technology for prostate cancer; high-resolution rectal cancer staging; dynamic pelvic floor imaging; and MR urography. Additional programs are also available.

The division of Abdominal Imaging provides a well-structured educational program for medical students, residents and fellows, with daily teaching at the workstation, didactic conferences and interdisciplinary conferences with educational materials provided at all levels. The division is involved with basic sciences and clinical research, and is in the process of grant applications.
