As one of the nation’s top academic medical centers, UT Southwestern offers clinical trials aimed at improving women’s imaging.
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.
