Emergency Radiology

The Division of Emergency Radiology (ER) extends the services of its subspecialty trained radiologists to Emory's network of hospitals including Emory University Hospital (EUH), Emory University Hospital Midtown (EUHM), Wesley Woods (WW), Emory University Orthopaedics & Spine Hospital (EUOSH) and Grady Hospital. The increasing imaging demand from the Emergency Department and the need for off-hours interpretation created an important role for the Division of Emergency Radiology. The Division focuses its resources on the timely interpretation of not only Emergency Department but also STAT inpatient examinations. The group strives to perform at the highest level of patient care and customer service.
