UAB Emergency Department
The UAB Emergency Department is on the first floor of the North Pavilion, and contains a large public lobby and front door. The UED consists of 38,000 square feet with 45 individual treatment rooms. This facility is equivalent to the size of one football field, and houses two 40-slice Philips Brilliance Power CT scanners in addition to radiography rooms. All images taken in the ED are transmitted to the PACS system, which allows quick retrieval of previous exams and the ability to remotely review cases. Residents read an average of 5,800 studies performed in the ED each month. This does not include MR, vascular or interventional radiology, or ultrasound exams.
