The division of cardiovascular and thoracic radiology is a group of dedicated cardiothoracic radiologists who specialize in all aspects of cardiac, vascular, and thoracic disorders.  Thoracic disease expertise includes interstitial lung disease, pulmonary infections, thoracic malignancies, occupational lung disorders, and smoking related lung injuries. Cardiac and vascular disease expertise includes ischemic and nonischemic cardiomyopathies, pediatric and adult congenital heart disease, peripheral vascular disease, and noninvasive evaluation of thoracic and abdominal endoluminal graft repairs.  The division provides a full range of diagnostic examinations for UK HealthCare and its satellite centers, including inpatient and outpatient chest radiography, chest CT, cardiac CT and MR, and vascular CT and MR. 

The cardiothoracic radiologists at the University of Kentucky are recognized experts in cardiothoracic and vascular imaging with an active consultation service and close working relationships with the clinical services of UK HealthCare including pulmonary and critical care medicine, thoracic and general oncology, thoracic surgery, radiation oncology, cardiology, general medicine, and infectious disease. The division takes part in numerous multidisciplinary conferences ranging from thoracic oncology to pediatric congenital heart disease.  The division provides dedicated teaching to medical students, residents, and fellows.
