Diagnostics

The success of cancer treatment depends on multiple factors. Diagnostic imaging plays a substantial role in diagnosis and treatment planning.

Your patient can receive their imaging studies at their cancer center, in most cases. We commonly use:

  • Computed Tomography (CT)
  • Positron Emission Tomography (PET)
  • PET/CT
  • ExacTrac – an advanced imaging technology used to verify patient and tumor position at the time of treatment, allowing us to target only the tumor and spare the surrounding normal tissue.
  • Bone density screening – Offered at some locations, bone density screening is useful for detecting early signs of osteoporosis and determining rate of bone loss. Bone density screening does not contribute to cancer staging or follow-up.

The Texas Interventional Radiology Center offers comprehensive, minimally invasive interventional services, including diagnostics.
