About Thoracic Imaging

The Thoracic Imaging subspecialty provides comprehensive imaging consultation on all pulmonary disorders. In addition to conventional chest radiographs and CT, advanced imaging techniques include high-resolution CT scans for the evaluation of focal lung processes, diffuse lung disease and tracheobronchial pathology; digital and advanced multiple-beam equalization radiography; and thoracic interventional procedures such as lung/mediastinal fine-needle aspiration and pleural drainage, and MR imaging of mediastinal and paracardiac pathology. The section has an active research interest in functional and computed radiology.
