Division of Abdominal Imaging
The Division of Abdominal Imaging, part of NYU Langone Health’s Department of Radiology, provides patient-centered care across the full spectrum of abdominal and pelvic diagnostic imaging procedures, develops and applies advanced imaging techniques to solve important clinical problems, and trains future abdominal imaging specialists.
Our division provides abdominal imaging and body MRI services at NYU Langone’s Tisch Hospital, NYU Langone Hospital—Brooklyn, NYC Health + Hospitals/Bellevue, and a wide network of outpatient imaging facilities in the New York metropolitan region.
Our members lead and participate in multicenter research investigations and collaborate with basic scientists and physicians from other medical specialties and present their work at national abdominal imaging meetings and in leading radiology journals.
Faculty members serve as journal reviewers, editorial board members, radiology board examination developers, and in various leadership positions for specialty societies, including the Society of Abdominal Radiology and Society for Advanced Body Imaging.
We receive a variety of awards and funding to support our research efforts, including from the National Institutes of Health.
Abdominal Imaging Education
We train residents and fellows in the latest abdominal imaging techniques and participate in radiology training for medical students. As part of NYU Grossman School of Medicine’s MD curriculum, medical students have the opportunity to spend time on the radiology service during a radiology selective and an abdominal imaging elective.
Physicians in our radiology residencies work daily with specialty-trained abdominal imaging radiologists interpreting exams performed at NYU Langone’s Tisch Hospital, Perlmutter Cancer Center, and NYU Langone Hospital—Brooklyn, as well as NYC Health + Hospitals/Bellevue and VA NY Harbor Healthcare System.
We also offer a one-year Body MRI Fellowship and a one-year combined Abdominal and Thoracic Imaging Fellowship for radiologists who wish to refine their skills in the latest techniques in these subspecialties. Fellows act as mentors for resident cases and coordinate medical student and resident clinical research.
Abdominal Imaging Research
Researchers in the Division of Abdominal Imaging conduct advanced imaging research that focuses on the technical development and clinical translation of new and novel imaging technologies. A primary focus of our research efforts is developing state-of-the-art MRI techniques. Other areas of interest include quality and safety, patient-centered care, informatics, policy and practice, and comparative effectiveness and health outcomes in abdominal imaging and body MRI.
Abdominal imaging research opportunities are open to medical students, residents, and fellows with an interest in radiology. We conduct active research on abdominal imaging applications of rapid MRI techniques, PET/MRI, medical informatics, and comparative effectiveness. Multiple faculty members receive external grant support, including from the National Institutes of Health. For a more information about the research we conduct, view recent abdominal imaging publications by our faculty.
Abdominal Imaging Clinical Services
We perform a variety of imaging services of the abdomen and pelvis, including radiography, fluoroscopy, ultrasound, CT scans, and MRI scans. Our areas of expertise include oncological imaging to diagnose, stage, and treat cancers of the bladder, colon, kidneys, liver, bile duct, pancreas, prostate, ovaries, and small intestines, as well as noninvasive vascular imaging, dual-energy CT scans, CT colonography, CT and MR enterography, and multiparametric prostate MRI. Other conditions we provide imaging services for include endometriosis and pelvic floor dysfunction.
