​Overview of the Diagnostic Radiology Program

The Diagnostic Radiology Program at Cleveland Clinic Abu Dhabi’s Imaging Institute offers a range of state-of-the-art diagnostic imaging services. All tests are performed by skilled technologists or doctors who use the latest technology to produce high quality images that assist in disease diagnosis.  

The Diagnostic Radiology Program team is committed to providing a Patients First experience that is unique in the field of diagnostic imaging. 

Images are interpreted by expert sub-specialized  doctors who have completed additional fellowship training in areas such as neuroradiology, abdominal radiology, thoracic radiology, or cardiovascular radiology, breast imaging or musculoskeletal imaging.  Before, during, and after each imaging test, highly skilled technologists and nurses work closely with every patient to ensure their needs are met.
