Body imaging of the chest, abdomen and pelvis primarily utilizes CT, ultrasound and MRI. Exciting advances in each of these modalities have improved image quality and diagnostic accuracy, as well as greatly expanding the indications in which these tests are useful.

Led by fellowship trained body imagers, Harold Bennett, M.D., and Marta Bogdanowicz, M.D., Madison Radiologists offers special expertise in advanced techniques for body imaging with CT, MRI and ultrasound. Additional expertise in body MRI is provided by MRI fellowship trained, Gregg Bogost, M.D..

Improvements in scanner design coupled with rapidly advancing computer power offer a variety of means to display, and analyze images. Three-dimensional data sets can be obtained to produce exquisite images (see featured article on Multidetector CT, and other body imaging featured articles).

We encourage physicians to visit our readroom at St. Mary’s Hospital and personally view these exciting new images.

Madison Radiologists will continue to evaluate new technologies and new applications in the arena of body imaging so that our patients receive the benefits of the latest technology and expertise.
