What is Radiology?

Radiology is a medical specialty that uses imaging techniques to diagnose and treat a wide variety of conditions. 
The UCSD Medical Center Radiology Department offers a comprehensive range of imaging services and advanced procedures, including:
•  Abdominal imaging
•  Breast imaging
•  Neuroradiology
•  Interventional and vascular radiology
•  Musculoskeletal radiology
•  Ultrasound
Additionally, the department has four state of the art MRI systems, including one at the Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) Institute where groundbreaking MRI research is also performed.
UCSD recently installed San Diego’s first clinical 3T MRI system at the Moores Cancer Center. Since this is twice the field strength of the conventional 1.5T “high field” scanners, it is the most advanced MR imaging system available in the county.
