The Abdominal Imaging and Intervention Section is composed of subspecialized clinical faculty physicians and research scientists. The clinical faculty are experts in the use of CT, ultrasound, MRI, plain radiographs, and fluoroscopy for diagnosis and intervention in the chest, abdomen, and pelvis. We are actively involved in advancing the research mission of the University of Wisconsin, with extensive grant funding and independent research laboratories in tumor ablation and diapeutic cancer agents.
The section has an extensive educational component including hosting the radiology residency program director (Dr. David Kim) and three associate residency program directors (Drs. Jessica Robbins, Timothy Ziemlewicz and Lori Mankowski Gettle). The section also contributes to medical student externships, and supports up to six abdominal radiology fellows per year.
This is a cutting-edge section devoted to excellence and leadership in every part of our mission. We pride ourselves on our collegiality, and we are strongly committed to the education of the next generation of radiology leaders.—Section Chief J. Louis Hinshaw, MD
