Division of Diagnostic Imaging
The ability to see cancer inside a patient's body is crucial for accurate diagnosis and treatment. MD Anderson's Division of Diagnostic Imaging has more than a dozen technologies available for radiologists to visualize tumors in both bone and soft tissue. From standard radiology to advanced techniques that can view the tiniest blood vessels, our radiologists take diagnosis, tumor staging and treatment planning to a whole new level. Our dedicated radiologists provide diagnostic services at the forefront of new advances in diagnostic imaging.
The Division of Diagnostic Imaging provides a full range of diagnostic imaging and therapeutic services:
- Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI)
- CT Scans
- Nuclear medicine
- Positron Emission Tomography (PET)
- Computerized radiology and digital diagnostics
- Vascular/Interventional radiology
For cancer patients, it means the most accurate diagnosis and treatment available anywhere, increasing the chances for success.
The Vascular & Interventional Radiology group, along with other team members, performs minimally invasive procedures to fix cancer-weakened bones, deliver chemotherapy drugs directly to the tumor, and to treat some cancers without surgery. Our nuclear medicine specialists are creating new radioactive agents that are helping improve diagnostic test results.
The Division of Diagnostic Imaging administers fellowship programs and is operated in conjunction with The University of Texas Medical School Branch. The Division integrates each of its department's major educational patient care responsibilities with the Division's research goals.
