Patient Safety

The Department of Radiology and Biomedical Imaging is committed to maintaining the highest possible standards of patient care and safety, from the moment a test is requested through to performance and final reporting of an imaging examination. This is true for all the tests we perform, whether it be plain X-rays, CT, MRI, US, nuclear medicine tests, or an interventional radiology procedure.

We are one of the few departments nationwide that have appointed an experienced faculty member to devote a substantial proportion of their time to patient safety.
