UW Radiology

Welcome From The Chair

Dushyant Sahani, MD Chairman and Professor

Welcome to the Department of Radiology website. You are invited to explore our Department which is comprised of nationally and internationally respected faculty, our vital research activities which encompass basic translational outcomes and clinical research, and our outstanding fellowship and residency training programs.

The Department of Radiology has 155 clinical and research faculty, with highly trained subspecialists covering all aspects of diagnostic, interventional, and nuclear medicine radiology – including abdominal imaging, breast imaging, emergency radiology, interventional radiology, musculoskeletal, neuroradiology, nuclear medicine, pediatric radiology, and thoracic imaging. We also have a dedicated team of medical physicists serving multiple hospitals within the University of Washington system. Our radiologists provide clinical coverage and teaching at eight clinical facilities (University of Washington-Montlake and Northwest Hospitals, Harborview Medical Center, Seattle Cancer Care Alliance, Seattle Children’s Hospital, Roosevelt Clinic, Eastside Specialty Clinic, and the Puget Sound VA Medical Center).

We take pride in delivering quality care customized to individual patients while applying the best practice standards. Our core value is to provide a higher level of care for every patient, every time – guided by research and inspired by the goal of healthcare that is more accessible, less invasive, lower cost, and evidence based. Our valued educational programs are geared toward creating physicians and scientists who care deeply and see innovation as central to the challenges of the future.

With highly subspecialized radiologists and researchers, state-of-the-art imaging technology, and our dedicated team comprised of faculty, trainees, and staff, we are well positioned to carry out the Mission and Vision of the Radiology Department.

The Department of Radiology is committed to embracing Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion in everything we do. Our faculty, trainees, and staff meet regularly in forums and participate in developing programs and initiatives to educate members of our department to value diversity and foster inclusion in the recruitment and retention of faculty and staff, recognition, and development of a pipeline to recruit and retain a diverse workforce that reflects the diversity of our patients.

Finally, our greatest joy is in accomplishing more together, in the power of partnering. As you examine our website and the work that we do, please contact us if you are interested in working with us or have suggestions on how we can further increase our impact.

Thank you for visiting our website.
