Welcome to the UAB Department of Radiology
The UAB Department of Radiology serves a pivotal and critical role in support of comprehensive patient care provided by the UAB Health System. Over 81 highly trained radiologists in every sub-specialty field form the foundation of diagnostic and therapeutic services available to patients throughout the country.

This year, on November 8, UAB Radiology joins with the European Society of Radiology (ESR), the Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) and the American College of Radiology (ACR) to celebrate the third International Day of Radiology (IDoR 2014) with radiological societies the world over. Medical imaging is one of the most exciting and progressive disciplines in healthcare and a field of great activity in terms of technological and biological research. The aim of IDoR is to build greater awareness of the value that radiology contributes to safe patient care, and improve understanding of the vital role radiologists play in the healthcare continuum. Brain imaging has been chosen as the main theme of the day, to highlight the important role that radiology plays in the detection, diagnosis and management of a wide variety of brain diseases and brain injuries. Our neuroradiology department performs and interprets over 60,000 CT and MRI exams a year and; last year, added to the knowledge of brain diseases through 21 publications and 17 invited lectures.
Nov. 8 is the International Day of Radiology, but imaging makes a world of difference every day.
