advancements to diagnose and treat a wide range of diseases and
Advanced Technology & Training
Special radiology imaging techniques include x-ray, computerized
tomography (CT), magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), ultrasound,
nuclear medicine, mammography, angiography, positron emission
tomography - computed tomography (PET/CT) and bone
Our radiologists have access to state-of-the-art imaging
equipment, including the region's first digital mammography machine
and first 3T MRI. BayCare Clinic was the first to bring an
interventional neuroradiologist to Northeast Wisconsin, and for
many years was the only clinic to offer this highly specialized
field of medicine.
The Radiologist's Role
Your radiologist plays a central role in your health care. He or
she serves as a consultant to your physician, by helping choose the
proper examination options and interpreting medical images. A
radiologist directs radiology technologists who operate exam
equipment to ensure proper performance and quality exams.
Radiologists will also treat disease through administration of
radioactive materials (for cancer and hyperthyroid treatments),
radiation (for cancer treatments) or through minimally invasive
image-guided surgery (interventional radiology).
Some imaging procedures involve radiation. Your radiologist has
advanced training in radiation safety and protection and can
address your concerns.
BayCare Clinic radiologists are board certified by the American
Board of Radiology. They operate at Aurora BayCare Medical
Center and Aurora BayCare Orthopedic and Sports Medicine

First 3T MRI Machine
BayCare Clinic radiologists use the region's first 3T MRI, the
most advanced MRI technology available. The Discovery 750 3T MRI is
faster, more accurate, and more comfortable than other MRI
machines. Fast scans means you spend less time in the MRI
machine. Plus, no-miss imaging tools - including motion-correction
- mean your radiologists get reliable results. That means both
you and your doctor can be more confident in the diagnosis.
Our radiology team was also the first to offer digital
mammography (2002) and breast MRI biopsies (2004) along with
several other targeted breast radiation technologies in Northeast
