Pulmonary Imaging and Thoracic Radiology

Advanced Thoracic Imaging Radiology

We provide state-of-the-art thoracic radiology. We use advanced imaging techniques for evaluating and diagnosing pulmonary disorders such as interstitial lung disease, pulmonary fibrosis, sarcoidosis, airways diseases, emphysema, COPD and lung cancer.  At UCSF we use the most advanced technologies and protocols for pulmonary imaging such as PET-CT for lung cancer and high-resolution CT for chronic lung disease. Radiologists with a subspecialty level of expertise interpret all tests, which means that your physician will receive the most precise diagnostic information for the potential full range of lung disorders including pulmonary fibrosis and other diseases.

Expertise from High Volumes of Cases

Experts in the UCSF cardiac and pulmonary imaging subspecialty are highly experienced in the diagnosis and follow-up assessment of all lung/thoracic disorders, including fibrosis of the pulmonary system. Since UCSF is a tertiary referral center, thoracic radiologists are highly experienced in the interpretation of CT, MRI and PET studies of lung cancer and of patients with multiple complex disorders. UCSF is one of the most active centers in the world for applying new MRI and CT technology to cardiovascular and respiratory conditions.
