Washington University radiology, also known as the Mallinckrodt Institute of Radiology (MIR), provides a full range of diagnostic radiology procedures, including X-rays, computed tomography, magnetic resonance and positron emission tomography. We also provide nuclear medicine examinations and interventional radiology procedures.
These board-certified physicians deliver access to technological advances not found elsewhere, using the lowest possible dose of radiation to perform your imaging exam. From child-sized equipment in kid-friendly rooms to MRI scanners with wider openings for adult patients with claustrophobia or a larger frame, we will do everything in our power to assure your physical comfort while acquiring the diagnostic images we need. Because our equipment is among the most advanced anywhere, we can conduct exams more quickly than many other providers. Your transcribed report will be immediately accessible to your physician through your electronic medical record.
We subspecialize in interpreting images from specific body regions and our detailed analyses provide referring physicians with the information needed to make an informed diagnosis.
