At UNC Radiology, we seek to provide excellent and compassionate state-of-the-art care to our patients, equip medical students with basic imaging knowledge, train future academic and private practice radiologists, and engage in cutting-edge radiological sciences and clinical research.

The Department provides a wide array of diagnostic imaging tests utilizing the most advanced imaging equipment available, ranging from conventional x-ray to dual source multi-detector CT, 3 Tesla MRIs and multi-slice PET/CT and MR/PET. A variety of sophisticated and advanced image-guided treatment procedures, such as radiofrequency, cryo and microwave ablation of tumors, prostatic artery embolization, kyphoplasty, and occlusion of intracranial aneurysms are also available. At UNC Radiology, not only are we pioneers in pushing the boundaries of this exciting field, but we also take great pride in being leaders in providing safest care available.
