MIR serves as the Department of Radiology for Washington University in St. Louis School of Medicine. Our physicians and scientists are faculty members of the School of Medicine; our physicians are on the medical staff of the Barnes-Jewish hospitals and St. Louis Children's Hospital.

Our clinical, or patient care, areas are equipped with highly advanced imaging and computer systems.  We maintain and improve efficiency and accuracy by continuously upgrading systems that shift from the use of plain film to 3-D imaging and digital radiology. Our physicians are dedicated to providing the highest quality, compassionate care for our patients.

Our research facilities are among the most highly regarded in the nation, combining clinical and basic research.  The research groups are extremely productive, with funding upwards of $30 million annually. At Mallinckrodt Institute, we are preparing for the future care of patients with continuous improvement in the research environment.

Our training programs for diagnostic radiology and nuclear medicine are highly sought after. Our diagnostic radiology residents, nuclear medicine residents, and clinical fellows are exposed to a wide variety of procedures and cases during their training time and can leave the Institute knowing they have obtained the necessary skills and knowledge for entering either private practice or academic medicine. Our multidisciplinary research training programs enable trainees to work with some of the top biomedical scientists in the world.
