Imaging Facilities

The Imaging Physics Residency is aligned with the Radiological Physics Services (RPS) in the Department of Medical Physics and with the Department of Radiology. RPS provides equipment quality assurance testing, acceptance testing, radiation safety services, and medical resident instruction to UW Hospitals and surrounding facilities.

The Imaging Physics Residency Program education and training takes place primarily in the UW Hospitals and Clinics (UWHC), Wisconsin Institutes for Medical Research (WIMR), and UW Medical Foundation (UWMF) facilities associated with the University of Wisconsin-Madison School of Medicine and Public Health (SMPH). The recently integrated UWHealth system is a nationally-recognized regional health system that includes the following facilities:

  • UWHC, a large referral center hospital and associated clinics, located on the UW-Madison campus,
  • UWHealth at The American Center (TAC), a 56-bed health and wellness facility located on Madison's east side,
  • The American Family Children's Hospital (AFCH), an 87-bed facility adjacent to UWHC and supported by its own extensive medical imaging systems,
  • UWMF clinics, with 3 outpatient medical imaging facilities located in and around the city of Madison, and
  • WIMR Imaging Services, where PET/CT, PET/MR, ultrasound, MRI and CT facilities devoted both to basic, translational, and clinical research and to standard of care imaging are provided.

Including imaging systems located in all facilities to which the residents have access (UWHC, UWMF, AFCH, TAC, WIMR), the installed base currently includes the following systems: 11 CT scanners, 34 radiographic CR/DR systems, 17 angiography systems, 44 fluoroscopy systems, 9 mobile radiography CR/DR units, 15 mammography systems, 3 stereotactic biopsy mammography systems, 3 bone densitometry systems, 2 dental units, 25 ultrasound units, 13 MR systems, 6 gamma camera /SPECT systems, 3 PET/CT systems, and 1 PET/MR system.
