Advance Practice Provider:
One of the largest clinical divisions within the department, abdominal imaging at UPMC has a national reputation for excellence, and division faculty are well-known throughout their subspecialty. This reputation has led to collaborations with physicians from all over the world who have come to UPMC to study with and learn from the division’s radiologists.

UPMC is the ideal setting for the academic abdominal radiologist, as it is strong in transplant surgery, trauma and oncology—a rare combination of strengths that present unlimited clinical and research opportunities.

The abdominal imaging division deals with the imaging, diagnosis and treatment of diseases of the abdomen and pelvis. This group handles other non-abdominal conditions, including pharyngeal and esophageal disease, and thyroid, scrotal, vascular and extremity abnormalities, using ultrasound. In 2008, the division successfully initiated 24/7 emergency department coverage for abdominal MR and CT, meaning that final reads are generated immediately by attending radiologists for these procedures—the first known service of its kind in academic radiology.

Major research focuses for the division include hepatobiliary disease; trauma; ultrasound-guided, minimally-invasive treatments for cancer, and organ transplantation. The division is based at UPMC Presbyterian, and division faculty also staff UPMC Shadyside and UPMC Hillman Cancer Center.
