Department and Faculty
Mayo Clinic radiologists and staff provide the highest-quality diagnostic and interventional imaging services in a caring and efficient manner, while sustaining outstanding programs in research and education.
This department is fully integrated with all the medical services available throughout Mayo Clinic, in order to "provide the best care to every patient every day." More than 30 radiologists work with state-of-the-art equipment, assisted by skilled technologists and nurses, to perform and interpret a large volume of cross-sectional studies. Total examination volume this past year included:
- 35,000 body CT scans
- 1,400 non-vascular body MR scans
- 22,000 ultrasound examinations
This large number of cases, integrated with on-going research and education, results in wide-ranging expertise in the imaging and treatment of disease.
The Department of Diagnostic Radiology at Mayo Clinic in Jacksonville has exceptional diagnostic resources. State-of-the art equipment includes seven Siemens Sequoia ultrasound units, four and 16-detector CT scanners, and eight 1.5T magnetic imaging units, including the first worldwide installation of the 1.5T open-bore system. System-wide PACS and an immediately accessible electronic medical record allow for efficient communication and informed diagnosis.
In addition to caring for patients in their clinical practices, Mayo Clinic's faculty members are committed to teaching and facilitating the growth of medical knowledge. Many of our faculty have published and lectured extensively and are recognized leaders in their field. You will have direct access to these individuals throughout your training program.
You will be assigned a faculty advisor who can provide comprehensive educational advice and personal support. Your advisor also will serve as a contact point, introducing you and your family to Scottsdale and the Mayo Clinic system.
Many prominent professors visit Mayo Clinic each year. They present their work during noon and/or morning lectures and participate in hospital rounds. You will be encouraged to take full advantage of these opportunities.
