The division of Abdominal Radiology is based in modern, well-equipped facilities at the University of Michigan Hospitals, the East Ann Arbor facility and the Ann Arbor VA Healthcare System.
Three General Electric Horizon Systems operate at a field strength of 1.5 Tesla and include advanced pulse sequences, echo planar, functional MR, MR/Angiography, and spectroscopy. In addition, we have three state-of the-art Philips scanners including a 1.5 Tesla field strength located at East Ann Arbor facility, and two 3 Tesla field strengths at the main hospital, one of which is dedicated to research.
Moreover, located in a building near University Hospital, there are additional magnets dedicated to research, including a 2.0 Tesla animal imager and both a 7.0 and a 9.4 Tesla small bore system. There also is a Data Image Processing Laboratory, which is involved in research with image processing of digital data for ultrasound, CT and MR.
