From the Chair

We provide excellence in patient care, education and research at Howard University. We strive to be the best in the greater Washington DC area.

For our patients, the department provides diagnostic imaging services to patients of all age groups, from newborn to geriatric, inpatient as well as ambulatory patients. The department is open 24 hours a day, seven days a week, and is under the direct supervision of a board-certified radiologist who works closely with the specially trained radiologic technologists in performing each imaging procedure. 

The department of Radiology is staffed with registered technologists, many of whom are registered in multiple imaging modalities. We offer a team approach to patient care.

For our medical and allied health students we provide multiple avenues of exposure to and education in Radiology. We are also very active in first and second year medical student education.

For the Howard University medical trainees in other specialties (medicine, surgery, neurology, endocrine, pulmonary, nephrology, obstetrics & gyncecology, rheumatology, cardiology) we provide dedicated interactive joint imaging teaching conferences.

For our Research partners we offer access to our expertise and state-of-the art imaging clinical imaging infrastructure, as well as to the Molecular Imaging Laboratory .
