Northside Hospital - Oncology/Cancer Imaging


Oncology/Cancer Imaging

Radiology is an integral component of Northside Hospital’s fully accredited Cancer Institute. State-of-the-art technology such as PET/CT, MRI, and CT are used by a multidisciplinary team of experts in diagnosing and staging cancer at Northside Hospital. This team includes skilled, board-certified radiologists who specialize in diagnosing specific kinds of cancer along with oncologists, pathologists, hematologists, and many other skilled health care professionals. Our work continues through the treatment phase as we provide studies that monitor progress and pinpoint the cancer’s exact location or activity.

Diagnostic procedures include, but are not limited to:

  • Imaging options include X-rays, ultrasound, MRI, CT, as well as Positron Emission Tomography (PET) – which can be used to detect sites of cancer not seen by many other imaging modalities.
  • For breast biopsies, options include stereotactic, or core needle biopsy − a less invasive method for diagnosing breast cancer.

There is no doubt that early detection is key to the successful treatment of cancer. This is why we make getting the cancer screenings you need as convenient, affordable and accurate as possible.
