Section of Thoracic Imaging

The Thoracic Imaging Section includes nine dedicated chest radiologists and four part-time faculty involved in the performance and interpretation of chest radiographs, CTs, MRI and PET-CT.

MD Anderson's Department of Diagnostic Radiology has state-of-the-art imaging. Major clinical equipment includes thirteen MRI scanners (twelve clinical operations and one research unit), twelve CT scanners, five PET/CT scanners, eleven dedicated digital chest units, four AC5000s for computerized radiology (CR), three Smart-CRs for CR, two Clearview Readers, workstations for image processing and analysis, filmless environment with multiple integrated modalities and an electronic medical record.

Our PET/CT facility is accredited by the American College of Radiology. As PET/CT is the state-of-the-art imaging modality for the staging of malignancies, our practice consists of 5000 studies for thoracic malignancies per year.

We also have an active cardiovascular imaging practice. The collaborative interaction with both Radiology and Cardiology faculty is a unique feature of the program; it combines the strengths of faculty with different training backgrounds to provide a balanced perspective on the utilization and interpretation of advanced cardiovascular imaging techniques in the diagnosis and management of patients presenting for evaluation of cardiovascular disease.
