Welcome to the Department of Radiology and Imaging at the Medical College of Georgia at Augusta University.


 

FROM OUR CHAIR

Dr. JI am honored to serve as leader of this wonderful team of staff, housestaff, and faculty that comprise the Department of Radiology and Imaging at the Medical College of Georgia at Augusta University.  There are multiple reasons I chose MCG and which I believe make us special.  I want to take this opportunity to share a few of them.

The first is the striking dedication of all the individuals on our team to providing the best possible care for the patients we serve.  As part of Georgia's only public medical school, we care for a diverse population including substantial rural and historically underserved residents.  This noble purpose is a unifying source of energy and pride for our team. 

Another major draw for me is the true passion our faculty have for education.  This is reflected in a long tradition of excellence in training programs for residents, fellows, and medical students.  It is fascinating to watch this passion express itself over time, ever-evolving with new perspectives and innovative teaching methods. 

Probably the greatest draw for me is something I perceived on day one in the Department, and which I continue to be more impressed with every day that passes.  That is the quality of relationships within the team here - the deep commitments, caring actions, and acceptance of one another that make us truly like a second family.

I hope that as you explore our website you will get a sense of how special our team is.  Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions.

About the department

Our mission is to improve and promote health by efficiently delivering the highest level of evidence-based imaging care while developing the next generation of top radiologists and conducting cutting-edge research.  We will accomplish this through working as a collegial team in a family-centered environment with dignity, respect and stewardship in service to our patients, students, fellow practitioners and community.

The department is organized into the Sections of Abdominal Radiology, Breast Imaging, Cardiovascular and Thoracic Radiology, Interventional Radiology, Musculoskeletal Radiology, Neuroradiology, Nuclear Medicine, and Pediatric Radiology.

Our rapidly growing team currently includes 29 full-time faculty, 30 adjunct faculty, 26 DR and IR residents, a neuroradiology fellow, and a PET fellow that work alongside nearly 200 support staff including technologists, nurses, and administrative staff.  

Together, we provide care at the Augusta University Medical Center, Children's Hospital of Georgia, and the Charlie Norwood VA Medical Center on an interconnected campus.  We also staff the new outpatient imaging center, AU Health Imaging, located at the border between Richmond and Columbia counties.
