Department and Faculty

Mayo Clinic radiologists and staff in the Department of Radiology provide the highest quality diagnostic and interventional imaging services in a caring and efficient manner, while sustaining outstanding programs in research and education.

This 100-year-old department — one of the first of its kind — is fully integrated with all the medical services available at Mayo Clinic. More than 150 radiologists and physicists cooperate with 1,000 support staff to provide diagnostic and therapeutic radiology services to patients.

Experts in all areas of radiology consult with specialists in other departments to provide the best care to every patient every day, in line with Mayo's mission. Radiologists work with state-of-the-art equipment, assisted by skilled technologists and nurses, to perform and interpret more than 1 million examinations each year.

This large number of cases, integrated with ongoing research and education, results in wide-ranging expertise in the imaging and treatment of diseases affecting people of all ages.


In addition to caring for patients in their clinical practices, Mayo Clinic's radiology faculty members are committed to teaching and facilitating the growth of medical knowledge. Many of our faculty members have published and lectured extensively and are recognized leaders in their fields.

You have direct access to these individuals throughout the Musculoskeletal Imaging Fellowship.
