Diagnostic Radiology Residency

The Department of Diagnostic Radiology at St. Vincent’s Medical Center offers a four-year residency-training program that is approved by the ACGME for 12 residents.

Entrance to the program is made through NRMP after appropriate application through ERAS (Electronic Residency Application System) (link to FAQ page).

Residents are exposed to patients with a wide range of medical needs. Both the inpatient and outpatient population reflect the health challenges found within diverse populations in the Greater Bridgeport area, including a substantial portion from within Fairfield County.


State-of-the-Art Facilities

St. Vincent’s Radiology Department is equipped with state-of-the-art facilities and equipment. This includes: 3 diagnostic CT scanners, a dedicated 4 slice CT unit for the radiation oncology service, a 1.5 Tesla MRI unit, routine diagnostic rooms, fluoroscopic rooms with cine capabilities, all-digital modern angiographic suite, ultrasound and nuclear medicine units, including a fixed PET/CT scanner and gamma cameras, all digital with SPECT capabilities. The department’s computer software is dedicated to computerized flow and quantitative radioisotopic procedures and digital mammography, which include tomosynthesis, all digital sterotactic breast biopsy systems and weekly MRI guided breast biopsies.

Our radiology information system (RIS) maintains all orders, results and statistics for the entire department and this information system is interfaced with the entire hospital information system for improved patient care. Filmless images from the PACS systems can be viewed not only in the Radiology Department, but in other related clinical and educational areas in the hospital.
