Welcome to LSU Health Shreveport Department of Radiology! We are committed to providing excellence in diagnostic imaging, image-guide interventions and therapy, quality patient care and multidisciplinary cooperation in clinical activities, continuous education and research. The Department of Radiology is represented by a diverse and talented group of faculty, residents, and administrators under the leadership of Dr. Hugo Cuellar. Clinical services include all aspects of diagnostic imaging and image-guided, minimally invasive interventional and diagnostic services, and integrated with services provided by other departments.
Our radiologists are highly skilled and are nationally and internationally acknowledged as experts in their subspecialty areas of practice, having made widely recognized contributions to clinical care, the education of trainees, and innovative imaging research.
Welcome to the LSU Health Shreveport Department of Radiology website. Our department was established on August 20, 1967. Dr. Erich K. Lang of the Methodist Hospital in Indianapolis was named as the Head of the Department of Radiology at the Confederate Memorial Medical Center and Chairman of the Department of Radiology at the LSU School of Medicine. From our beginning, the faculty, residents and staff have understood the importance of quality patient care, communication, education, innovation and research. We are a service-oriented and resident-centered academic department.
As you explore our website, I hope you get a sense of the pride and accomplishments of our faculty and residents. Thank you for visiting!
