Radiologists and staff in the Department of Radiology at Mayo Clinic's campus in Rochester, Minnesota, provide the highest quality diagnostic and interventional imaging services in a caring and efficient manner, while sustaining outstanding programs in research and education.

This 115-year-old department — one of the first of its kind — is fully integrated with all the medical services available throughout Mayo Clinic.

Radiologists work with state-of-the-art equipment, assisted by skilled technologists and nurses, to perform and interpret more than 1 million examinations yearly. This large number of cases, integrated with ongoing research and education, results in wide-ranging expertise in the imaging and treatment of diseases affecting patients of all ages.

The department's equipment includes:

  • Thirty clinical magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scanners, including 16 3-Tesla magnets. Plus, the department has an additional three full-time dedicated research magnets.
  • Nineteen clinical computerized tomography (CT) scanners, including nine dual source scanners. Two additional CT scanners are dedicated to research.
  • Forty-five ultrasound machines.
  • Seven interventional suites.
