Thoracic Imaging

Thoracic Imaging is an active service with close relationships with internal medicine, pulmonary and critical care, medical oncology, bone marrow transplantation, cardiology divisions, and cardiac and thoracic surgery services. The University of Washington Medical Center is a leading referral center for interstitial lung diseases, lung transplantation, and thoracic surgery. Our section is also recognized for its excellence in lung cancer screening. We conduct weekly conferences with the inpatient services of internal medicine, oncology, and daily conferences with the inpatient service from Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Institute, a premier bone marrow transplantation center. Our responsibilities include teaching medical students, residents, and fellows. We are engaged actively in clinical research of cardiopulmonary diseases.

Patient Care

The Thoracic Imaging section provides all aspects of imaging care of the chest, heart, and great vessels. In addition to standard radiology and CT of the chest, we offer lung cancer screening, high-resolution CT of the lungs, CT of the heart and coronary arteries, and MRI of the heart.
