Radiology Research Programs
Cyclotron and Radiochemistry Program
The Cyclotron and Radiochemistry Program is a UT Southwestern Medical Center-wide effort to develop the full capability of nuclear imaging, namely radioisotope-based imaging, for noninvasive assessment of physiological processes and abnormalities in animal models and in humans.
The Magnetic Resonance group strives to carry out fundamental research that leads either to the development of new techniques and interventions using MR or to an improved understanding of the pathophysiology of disease for diagnosis and treatment.
The overarching goal of the Pre-Clinical Imaging Program is to develop prognostic imaging signatures that define biomarkers of disease progression and response to therapy.
The mission of the Prostate Cancer research program is to promote innovative, high-impact, translational research that leads to the development of better tools to detect clinically relevant disease and to help distinguish aggressive from indolent forms of the disease.
