About Us

UCLA Radiology is committed to providing outstanding patient care by combining excellence in clinical imaging, research, and educational programs with state-of-the-art technology.

We are a team of dedicated subspecialty radiologists, clinical and basic scientists, specialized nursing and technical staff, physician trainees and talented managers who provide exemplary care to our patients at the demanding service levels expected by our community.

Our Department faculty and research programs are internationally recognized. We maintain strong interdisciplinary links with other departments within the Medical Center, and the UCLA campus. This strong collaborative interaction between research and clinical practice allows us to rapidly implement new, and sometimes revolutionary, imaging and therapeutic innovations.

Our Department has multiple areas of excellence including

  • Neuroscience
  • Oncologic Imaging
  • Breast Imaging
  • Cardiovascular and Pulmonary Disease
  • Computer Aided Diagnosis
  • Medical Informatics

These programs are in the forefront of the convergence between imaging technologies and therapeutic modalities, and we are actively engaged in accelerating that trend for the benefit of patients.

Our dynamic physician trainee program balances didactic and practical learning environments with an emphasis on active participation. Residents are exposed to the expanding range of imaging: anatomic and molecular imaging techniques, screening and diagnostic imaging, a wide array of interventional methods, academic and community practice, and current topics in business and operations. The Department also offers interdepartmental advanced graduate degree training programs in Biomedical Physics and Medical Imaging Informatics. Our diverse educational programs provide extensive interdisciplinary research and training opportunities which bring great breadth and depth to our educational mission.

UCLA Radiology provides a stimulating atmosphere that fosters an inquisitive and entrepreneurial mindset, allowing us to explore new approaches and new frontiers. Our commitment to innovation, excellence in patient care, and inspired education permits us to remain leaders in healthcare.
