Section Summary

Whole heart ColorThe Cardiac Imaging Section of Diagnostic Radiology is a multidisciplinary team of Radiologists and Cardiologists.  We perform detailed anatomic, functional, and physiologic imaging of the coronary arteries, myocardium, cardiac chambers, valves, aorta, pulmonary arteries, and pericardium using cardiac magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and computed tomography (CT) in adults and pediatric patients suffering from a broad range of congenital and acquired cardiac diseases.

Imaging examinations are tailored to the specific diagnostic questions posed by the referring clinicians in adult and pediatric cardiology and cardiothoracic surgery.

Patients are imaged using state of the art equipment located at OHSU Hospitals and the outpatient Center for Health and Healing (CHH).  All exams are performed on state-of-the-art equipment.  There are three 1.5 Tesla, two 3.0 Tesla closed and one 1.0 Tesla 'open' MR scanners; CT scanners are equipped with 256 and 64 detector rows.
