Welcome to the Emergency Radiology Division at the University of Michigan. The Emergency Radiology division provides a full range of state-of-the art imaging, offering radiography, sonography, computed tomography (CT), and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) for the U-M Emergency Department and acute observation units in the evening and at night. The University of Michigan is a tertiary referral center with a Level 1 Trauma Center, a dedicated Burn Unit, and a Survival Flight transportation crew. The U-M Emergency Department sees more than 70,000 patient visits per year. Our equipment includes a 64-slice CT scanner located in the Emergency Department in addition to the CT scanners in the main department, 3-D workstations, 1.5 and 3T MRI scanners, portable sonography, and a fully digital PACS with voice recognition dictation.
Our Emergency Radiology faculty are fellowship-trained radiologists who specialize in recognizing acute traumatic and non-traumatic pathology in children and adults, from head to toe. Our faculty have published peer-reviewed papers and book chapters, presented numerous award-winning exhibits, and given national and international lectures on a wide-range of topics in emergency radiology. We collaborate on clinical, quality, and research endeavors within the radiology department and with our colleagues in Emergency Medicine and Acute Care Surgery in order to advance our understanding of radiology and medicine, improve quality and safety, and ensure best possible patient care.
