Dept. of Radiology Opens New MRI Center in La Jolla

    The UCSD Department of Radiology established a new imaging
    facility, the UCSD Imaging Center of La Jolla, on Feb. 3. Specializing in
    magnetic resonance imaging, the center offers the public an opportunity to
    access the services of UCSD’s world-renowned radiology faculty.

    “Patients will be able to access state-of-the-art imaging
    techniques developed by UC San Diego which are not widely available to the
    public,” medical director of the new imaging center Stephen M. Dorros said in a
    press release.

    MRI readings conducted at the new center will be supervised
    and interpreted by UCSD School of Medicine radiologists using the latest
    developments in image acquisition technology and techniques.

    “These techniques are important to the timely and accurate
    diagnosis of orthopedic and sports injuries as well as diagnosing the
    progression of diseases such as Alzheimer’s, multiple sclerosis, liver
    dysfunction and neurological disorders,” Dorros said.
