Pediatric Radiologists participate in numerous multidisciplinary conferences and enjoy the respect of our referring clinicians. Our radiologists teach medical students, residents and fellows. The MU Diagnostic Radiology residency is currently 20 residents (5 per class) and we are expanding to add 5 Interventional Radiology/Diagnostic Radiology (IR/DR) residents (1 per class). We have an approved pediatric imaging fellowship program. MU offers 4 years of fellowship level training on the ABR Alternate Pathway for the appropriate candidate.

        Our Investment

        Looking to the future, MU is making a huge investment in medical research. The recently opened NextGen Precision Health Institute is a $220 million, 265,000-square-foot research facility that is a hub where scientists and clinicians collaborate with experts in other disciplines. The NextGen Precision Health building is sited immediately adjacent to the University Hospital. The facility is equipped for every step of the translational research process and houses a MAGNETOM Terra 7 Tesla (7T) MRI scanner, the first of its kind in Missouri. This scanner is used for both clinical care and research. In addition, the University of Missouri Research Reactor (MURR) is a major provider of medical isotopes in North America. TheraSphere , a treatment for liver cancer; Ceretec , the first brain imaging agent; and Quadramet , an agent designed to relieve pain associated with metastatic cancer to the bone were developed by MURR scientists. MU has an ongoing, active radiopharmaceutical development program.
