Radiology

Our team of radiologists, physician assistants, radiology practitioner assistants, radiology technologists and nurses use imaging technology to diagnose and treat diseases.

Our equipment

Radiology equipment includes CatScans, MRIs and ultrasounds. There are also traditional x-ray machines, DEXA, nuclear medicine, PET scanners, and "cath labs". MRI and ultrasound machines use radio waves (MRI) and sound waves (US). The others use x-rays. We always use the least amount of radiation whenever we use x-ray equipment.

As you can imagine, the radiology equipment is very expensive. We spend a good deal of time determining how best to spend the resources we have. We want to ensure that all of our patients are imaged appropriately, using the most up-to-date equipment. With a few exceptions, we have chosen to mainly work with equipment from Philips Healthcare. Philips has exceptionally advanced imaging equipment and is a leader in reducing radiation dose – both to patients and to the radiologist.

Clinic & Specialty Center

First floor

Interventional Radiology Clinic

Interventional Radiologists use x-rays, CT scans, ultrasounds and other imaging to advance a catheter in the body in order to non-surgically treat a disease at the source.

Lung Cancer Screenings

Low radiation dose computed tomography (CT) scans with real-time results for patients at risk for lung cancer, and services to help quit smoking.

Whittier Clinic Imaging

Located at our Whitter Clinic, the latest imaging technology is used for preventive medicine, screening healthy patients to look for underlying disease or to diagnose a suspected illness.

Mammography

A safe procedure using low doses of radiation to produce high quality x-rays to determine if you may or may not have breast cancer.

Commitment to Patient-Centered Care

Our mission is to transform Hennepin Healthcare's Radiology into the premier radiology group in the Twin Cities and the Upper Midwest. By recruiting outstanding, patient-centered radiologists and overseeing the installation of state-of-the-art imaging equipment, we believe we have achieved that goal. Our group is constantly working to exceed expectations – of our patients, of our colleagues, and of ourselves.
