Abdominal Imaging

Abdominal imaging group of Department of Radiology faculty.

Section chief: Andrew Rosenkrantz, MD
Associate section chief: Myles Taffel, MD
The mission of the NYU Abdominal Imaging Section parallels that of the Radiology department, which is to transform the field of radiology with the ultimate goal of improving patient care. Providing patient centric clinical care is the primary focus of our section. To achieve this goal, we not only utilize current state-of-the art imaging techniques, but are leaders in the development and application of novel advanced imaging techniques to solve important clinical problems.  The Abdominal Imaging section performs and interprets the full spectrum of abdominal and pelvic diagnostic imaging procedures (including radiography, fluoroscopy, ultrasound, CT, and MRI).  Our areas of expertise include oncologic imaging, non-invasive vascular imaging, dual-energy CT, CT colonography, CT/MR enterography, and multi-parametric prostate MRI.  The section provides 24-7 subspecialty coverage for NYU Langone Tisch Hospital and NYU Langone Hospital-Brooklyn, staffs Bellevue Hospital (the nation's oldest public hospital), and also interprets examinations from a wide range of outpatient imaging facilities within the New York metropolitan region.
The section consists of over 25 faculty and 5 fellows in Body MRI.  The faculty include nationally- and internationally-recognized leaders in the field that frequently publish their research in peer-reviewed journals and deliver invited lectures at other academic institutions and at specialty meetings.  Multiple faculty members have external grant support, including from the National Institutes of Health.  Our members serve as journal reviewers, editorial board members, radiology board examination developers, and in various leadership positions for specialty societies.  Current areas of active research include abdominal applications of rapid MRI techniques, PET/MRI, medical informatics, and comparative effectiveness.  The section prides itself in medical education, as our faculty actively participates in the education of medical students, residents and fellows, with multiple members having received teaching excellence awards from the NYU trainees.
