Radiology Resources for Clinicians

Eric M. Walser, MD

Mardi Gras


Dr. Seth Morris, in the department of chemistry, made the first xray tube at UTMB in 1896 - one year after the invention of xrays by Wilhelm Roentgen. While you can no longer speak with Dr. Morris, below are links for you to speak with our modern day radiologists staffing 3 hospitals and numerous other imaging locations.

Q-genda is our scheduling software and, from this spreadsheet, you can see the radiology residents and faculty staffing the subsections such as interventional radiology and neuroradiology. Since the residents and faculty are on their digital PACS machines, the best way to start a conversation is to find the person on Skype LYNC and text them your phone number or your question. Radiologists are almost always in front of computer screens unless performing procedures. If you get no response from faculty, try the resident or fellow on the service.

Q-genda opens in a new window.

Also below is a contact list for phones in Radiology administration and in the various sections of our department.

Third Column

First tab is active by default

Second tab is active

Alternative ways to specify the active tab will overrule this argument, listed in the order of their precedence:

  1. If a fragment identifier (hash) in the URL of the page refers to the id of a tab panel of a tab interface the corresponding tab will become the initial tab.
  2. Same if you use the cookie option to save the latest selected tab in.
  3. Last not least you can set the selected tab by attaching the selected tab class class (default: "ui-tabs-selected") to one of the li elements representing a single tab.
