Main Hospital (Sacramento Campus)

The Department of Radiology provides patient care and resident training in the inpatient and outpatient facilities of the UC Davis Medical Center campus in Sacramento, Calif. Within the hospital is one 16-detector CT unit, two 64-detector CT units, and one dual energy CT scanner. There is currently one 3.0 Tesla magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) system and two 1.5 Tesla MRI systems.  We currently have three recently renovated angiographic suites, four ultrasound examination rooms equipped with state-of-the-art ultrasound units and two additional ultrasound units for portable examinations.

There are two fluoroscopy rooms for gastrointestinal and uroradiology studies, and a well-equipped pediatric fluoroscopy suite.  Four radiographic rooms provide in-patient plain films and two dedicated radiographic rooms support the emergency department. The Division of Nuclear Medicine has two whole body SPECT cameras, 3 SPECT/CT cameras, one single head camera and a PET/CT scanner focused on cardiac testing.  The Division of Nuclear Medicine also has a thyroid probe for thyroid uptake.

 

The pleasant and modern surroundings of the Lawrence J.
