Chair's Welcome

Mary MahoneyWelcome to the University of Cincinnati College of Medicine Department of Radiology. The department was established in the early 1920s and is an academic department providing highly specialized care to patients who need state-of-the-art diagnostic imaging or image-guided therapies.

Our mission is to improve health for all through:

  • Personalized care embracing best clinical practices.
  • Innovative interdisciplinary research.
  • Premier clinical and scientific research.
  • Creative community partnerships.

We perform over 350,000 exams a year, serving patients at the University of Cincinnati Medical Center, West Chester Hospital, Daniel Drake Post-Acute Center, and several outpatient imaging facilities and other sites in the Greater Cincinnati area. We are the region's Level 1 trauma center and a Comprehensive Cancer Center, and we are a fully ACR-accredited imaging department.

The department offers a top-ranked radiology residency program, post-residency fellowship in eight disciplines, medical student education, allied health professionals training and continuing medical education for practicing physicians. Over 400 radiologists have been trained in the UC radiology residency program.

In addition, over 150 radiologists have completed fellowships in our subspecialties. Our graduates include department heads and chiefs of service at hospitals and universities, as well as leaders of professional and academic societies.

UC Radiology provides subspecialized patient care in Abdominal Imaging, Breast Imaging, Cardiopulmonary Imaging, Emergency Radiology, Musculoskeletal Imaging, Neuroradiology, Nuclear Medicine, and Interventional Radiology. Board certified radiologists are in the hospital 24/7/365 to work with trainees. Final reports are provided for all emergent and intensive care unit exams in an average of one hour or less.

Our sub-specialized physicians provide balloon angioplasty, intra-arterial thrombolysis (stroke reversal), coiling of cerebral aneurysms, coincidence PET imaging for the evaluation of tumors, and TIPS procedure for liver disease. Our skilled team also provides fMRI and DTI for diagnostic evaluation and neurosurgical planning, T2 MRI mapping of knee cartilage, prostate MRI spectroscopy, full field digital mammography, computer aided detection, breast spectroscopy, breast tomosynthesis, MR-guided breast biopsies, and noninvasive dual source CT cardiac imaging. Comprehensive loco-regional treatment of hepatocellular carcinoma and metastatic disease to the liver is provided using selective internal radiation therapy (SIRT), transarterial chemoembolization (TACE) and radiofrequency ablation (RFA).

Our research activities include multicenter clinical trials, NIH-funded programs, and industry-sponsored trials. We collaborate with researchers from other UC departments and Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center, and with other institutions throughout the United States and abroad. Our faculty, residents and fellows routinely present their findings at prominent national meetings such as the RSNA Annual Meeting and publish in the leading medical journals.

I have been honored to be associated with UC Radiology for over thirty years, and I am confident that the very talented physicians and staff in this department will continue to improve our educational and professional services. I invite you to contact me at
