Most people who turn to Mayo Clinic for help with serious conditions benefit from the exceptional care, advanced technology and expertise of the Department of Radiology. Radiologists are doctors who specialize in using imaging technology to diagnose and treat people with a wide range of difficult-to-diagnose and complex conditions. Successful treatment starts with an accurate diagnosis, and our experts take the time to get it right. A team of specialists will listen to your needs and evaluate your condition from every angle to make the very best plan for you.

Mayo Clinic has one of the largest radiology practices in the world, with more than 300 radiologists and nearly 30 physicists across its three campuses in Jacksonville, Florida; Phoenix/Scottsdale, Arizona; Rochester, Minnesota; and the Mayo Clinic Health System. They and their teams work together to provide innovative, high-quality imaging, diagnosis and treatment services in a caring, safe and efficient environment.

Collaborative care, focused on you

Mayo Clinic radiologists work closely with many medical specialty areas to make sure you get exactly the care you need. Depending on your situation, your care team may include radiologists and other doctors, including those trained in cardiovascular medicine, urology, pediatrics, otorhinolaryngology (ENT)/head and neck surgery, hematology, oncology, gastroenterology and hepatology, neurology, neurosurgery, orthopedic surgery, or vascular surgery.

Radiologists and physicists work with skilled technologists and nurses to efficiently provide imaging services. This means your test results are usually available quickly, and appointments are scheduled in coordination. Highly specialized experts are working together for you. What might take weeks or even months to accomplish elsewhere can typically be done in a matter of days at Mayo Clinic.

Mayo Clinic Health System clinics, hospitals and health care facilities serve more than 60 communities in Iowa, Minnesota and Wisconsin. These sites bring Mayo Clinic radiology expertise and individualized care to their communities.

Advanced diagnosis and treatment

Mayo Clinic radiologists use advanced imaging technology, which is key to ensuring you receive an accurate diagnosis and treatment. Many of these innovative testing and imaging methods are available at very few medical centers. Most recently, the clinic installed a 7-tesla MRI scanner, the first in North America with Food and Drug Administration (FDA) clearance for specific clinical uses. With its increased magnetic field strength, this scanner is a transformational tool. It noninvasively reaches deep into the human body, allowing doctors to see what was previously invisible.

Innovative therapies are an integral part of the Mayo Clinic Department of Radiology. For instance, ablation is a minimally invasive needle-based therapy used to treat certain cancers. The Department of Radiology is also a leader in the field of theranostics, in which a nuclear medicine therapeutic agent is paired to a diagnostic agent. Mayo Clinic is one of a very few medical centers in the United States that offers a recent FDA-approved theranostic for treatment of certain cancers.

Mayo Clinic's commitment to offering the most advanced imaging technology is based in a long history of seeking out or developing imaging innovations that improve patient care. More than 40 years ago, Mayo Clinic was the first medical institution in North America to offer CT exams. A few more of the clinic's many imaging milestones include:

  • The first 64-slice CT scanner
  • The first dual-source CT scanner
  • Development of magnetic resonance elastography — a noninvasive technology with uses such as evaluating liver fibrosis without a biopsy
  • The world's first compact 3-tesla MRI scanner, which aspires to expand patient access to much-needed MRI exams around the world
  • Development of molecular breast imaging — a supplemental technology to mammograms that can improve detection of tumors in dense breast tissue
  • The first U.S. institution approved to manufacture and administer C-11 choline injections for choline PET/CT, which can help identify recurrent prostate cancer
  • One of the first medical institutions to install a PET/MRI scanner with new PET detector technology

Throughout Mayo Clinic's campuses and the Mayo Clinic Health System, radiology technology includes 54 CT scanners, 59 MRI scanners, 10 PET/CT scanners, 58 breast imaging systems, three molecular breast imaging systems, 422 general radiography systems, 187 ultrasound scanners, 38 nuclear medicine/cardiology systems, two PET/MRI scanners and 33 vascular interventional/special procedure suites. Intraoperative MRI at Mayo Clinic allows your surgical and radiology teams to view real-time images to enhance precision.

A team dedicated to your safety monitors how these advanced imaging technologies are used for your diagnosis and treatment.

An IVC filter is a metal device that is positioned into the body's main vein – called the inferior vena cava (IVC) – that leads from your legs to the right side of your heart. This filter can help keep clots from being carried into your lungs. Filters are typically reserved for people who cannot take anticoagulant drugs or when anticoagulant drugs do not work well enough or fast enough.

A small catheter with the filter in the tip is usually inserted in a vein in your neck or leg, and then into the inferior vena cava. Some filters can be removed when they are no longer needed. The placement of an IVC filter does not address the cause of the initial blood clot risk.

IVC filter removal

A retrievable IVC filter may be removed when the risk of a blood clot traveling to the lungs has passed or if you can take blood thinners. Your doctor may recommend removing the filter when it's no longer needed. IVC retrieval helps reduce the risks of having an IVC filter in your body. For example, certain types of IVC filters have been found to break apart and damager the vein. Filters can also increase risks of new blood clot formation in the legs and abdomen.

The procedure to remove the IVC filter is similar to the procedure used to place it. A small catheter-based wire loop (snare) is inserted into the large vein in the neck. A removable IVC filter contains a small hook at one end. With X-ray guidance, your doctor uses the snare to grasp the hook and withdraw the filter. If this is unsuccessful, advanced complex filter removal techniques can be used very effectively. These procedures are performed on an outpatient basis under sedation, with brief post-procedure observation and return to normal activities the next day.

IVC filter retrieval is generally recognized as safe, but it does carry some risks, including:

  • Bleeding
  • Clot formation
  • Other complications related to a filter changing position after the original placement

Talk with your doctor about the risks and benefits of IVC filter retrieval before you schedule the procedure.
