Oncology Imaging Services
UT Southwestern offers oncology imaging services that include:
- Positron emission tomography (PET): Used to evaluate and diagnose cancer and determine if cancer is spreading, is responding to treatment, or has gone into remission; can be particularly effective for lymphoma and melanoma, as well as brain, breast, head and neck, lung, gastrointestinal, and gynecological cancers
- Selective internal radiation therapy (SIR-Spheres®): Injection of microscopic beads containing radioactive material through a catheter to target inoperable liver tumors
- Palliative (pain-relief) treatments for cancer that has spread (metastasized) to the bones
- Targeted “salvage therapy” treatments for non-Hodgkin lymphoma
- Radioactive iodine (I-131) therapy to treat thyroid cancer
- Computed tomography (CT) scans
- Combined PET/CT scans
- Diagnostic mammography
- Magnetic resonance (MR) spectroscopy
- Nuclear medicine bone scans and uptakes, including radioactive iodine (I-131) whole-body scans
- Prostate ultrasound
- Radiography (X-rays)
- Stereotactic targeting
As one of the nation’s top academic medical centers, UT Southwestern offers clinical trials aimed at improving radiologic imaging and better diagnosing and treating cancer.
Clinical trials can give patients access to leading-edge imaging technologies that are not yet widely available. Eligible patients who choose to participate in one of UT Southwestern’s clinical trials might benefit from imaging technologies years before they are available to the public.
