TGH Provides Many Radiology Imaging Services & Minimally Invasive Procedures
Tampa General Hospital¡¯s Radiology Department provides state-of-the-art imaging for a variety of conditions, as well as interventional treatments that may be offered as alternatives to more invasive surgeries. Our imaging capabilities serve as the foundation for many of our treatments, giving our clinicians the guidance they need to establish effective management plans. Our fellowship-trained radiologists are trained in diagnostic imaging techniques for all our hospital¡¯s sub-specialties, including neuroradiology, and cardiac, musculoskeletal, thoracic, body, and vascular imaging.
Some of the highlights of our radiology imaging program include our emergency CT, MRI, and radiology suites, as well as our dedicated OB/GYN ultrasound and pediatric imaging services. We even have portable and mobile technology for multiple specialties. Plus, our digital imaging capabilities, including advanced cardiac MRI imaging, make us a regional referral center for highly specialized imaging studies. When factoring in all of our different imaging capabilities, our radiologists, technologists, and nursing personnel perform more than 400,000 exams per year.
Our extensive diagnostic radiology imaging abilities can be used to diagnose a variety of medical conditions, and they can also be used to provide visual guidance during certain minimally invasive treatments. For example, our experienced interventional radiologists can perform prostatic artery embolization (PAE) and uterine fibroid embolization, as well as treatments for cancer and vascular aneurysms, using digital imaging to guide their movements. Using CT and ultrasound imaging, we can also perform organ biopsies with very low complication rates.
TGH¡¯s Radiology Department always makes patient safety a top priority. As such, we carefully follow all protocols necessary to maintain the lowest effective dose of radiation exposure throughout imaging sessions and treatments. For these and other reasons, TGH has earned a spot?on Newsweek's World's Best Hospitals 2019 list for radiology. Based on certain performance indicators, patient satisfaction scores, and peer recommendations, this world-class ranking is evidence of our commitment to ensuring our patients receive world-class care.?
