DHMC Department of Radiology
In 1896, Dartmouth was home to the first clinical X-ray ever performed in the U.S. Over 100 years later, radiology remains a core focus at DHMC, even as it has evolved into an array of new technologies and imaging modalities. Traditional X-rays have been supplemented with fluoroscopy, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), computed tomograpy (CT), ultrasound, nuclear imaging (PET, PET-CT, and SPECT), interventional radiology treatments, as well as rapidly developing software technologies, such as 3D imaging.
In each of these areas, Dartmouth-Hitchcock has maintained its place as one of America's premier radiological centers, providing direct patient care and diagnostic support to all clinical areas of the hospital, as well as providing teaching programs for new generations of radiologists and a range of research activities designed to improve the power and usefulness of modern medical imaging.
The Department of Radiology, in concert with the entire medical, academic and research staff of Dartmouth-Hitchcock Health, seeks to lead the transformation of health care in our region, setting the standard for our nation in achieving the healthiest population possible. Through research, education, clinical practice and community partnerships, we are committed to the mission of advancing health, providing each person the best care, in the right place, at the right time, every time.
