Chairman's Welcome

Elias Melhem Radiology Chairman

Welcome to the website of the Department of Diagnostic Radiology and Nuclear Medicine at the University of Maryland. Ours is one of the oldest departments in the United States founded around the turn of the twentieth century by Drs. Henry J. Walton and Walter Kilby. Throughout our progressive history we have excelled in training the vast majority of radiologists practicing in the state of Maryland, in providing our patients and their referring physicians the highest quality of imaging diagnostics and interventional therapeutics, and in pushing the envelope of imaging science innovation and discovery.

We are proud to boast of more than 70 topnotch clinical and research faculty, including some of the nation’s most accomplished physician leaders in Radiology. We thoughtfully plan and implement state-of-the-art imaging equipment and technology to provide our patients the best care possible. Our residency and fellowship training programs are highly competitive and are structured around well thought out subspecialized curricula. We have continued emphasis on biomedical imaging research and innovations with 5 thriving core imaging laboratories to support our academic missions.

I welcome your interest in our department, and I invite you to explore our website to learn more about our dynamic clinical and educational programs.
