WELCOME

Welcome to the Department of Medical Imaging (DMI) at the University of Arizona. The DMI collaborates closely with, and is highly supportive of, the other clinical and scientific departments across the College of Medicine, Health Sciences Colleges and the University of Arizona. Our mission, goals, objectives and strategies are aligned with the “Never Settle” academic initiatives put forth by our University leadership and with the clinical values of our Banner Health Network. On this site you will learn about our exceptional clinical services, our internationally renowned clinical and research faculty, groundbreaking clinical and scientific research initiatives, cutting-edge medical imaging equipment, advanced informatics systems, and our acclaimed graduate medical education and research programs. We are very proud of our commitment to excellence in each of these endeavors that ultimately improve and drive patient-centered, value-added care for our patients, nationally and internationally. Our objective is to predict, screen or diagnose diseases earlier, when treatments may be more effective or curative (such as for cancers), using superior diagnostic imaging and improved imaging-guided diagnostic and therapeutic procedures. This, in turn, will lead to fewer tests and will improve overall patient health outcomes at minimum cost, minimum risk, and maximum patient comfort.
