Chest Imaging

Chest imaging plays an important role in the evaluation of nearly all patients in the hospital. Whether a patient comes in for a brain tumor or a foot ulcer, a chest radiograph is one of the first imaging tests a patient usually has. Our subspecialty radiologists in the chest section are experts in interpretation of chest radiographs, CT scans, and MRI. We have extensive experience in lung cancer diagnosis and screening. In fact, Northwestern was one of the sites in the landmark National Lung Cancer Screening Trial. In addition to oncology, the chest imaging section works closely with pulmonary medicine in the diagnosis of many entities including interstitial lung disease and pulmonary hypertension.

The section of chest imaging is composed of a diverse group of radiologists with varied interests. The one thing we have in common is a dedication to patient care and service to our referring clinicians. ”
