We are dedicated to providing the highest quality care in a personalized environment that combines compassion with proven research advances. One of our top priorities is ease of access. We pride ourselves on responsiveness to patient inquiries and physician contacts.

Our staff physicians (radiologists and cardiologists) are experts in Cardiac MRI and Cardiac CT. The Division uses the latest equipment including a 3T MRI and Flash CT systems that are dedicated to cardiovascular imaging. The clinical activities are jointly shared with cardiology and radiology.
