Clinical Research

The Department participates in a variety of NIH and industry-sponsored clinical trials to provide patients with the latest in diagnostic and interventional radiology technology. The Department is a member of the American College of Radiology Imaging Network, a NIH-funded national network of radiology research institutions. Through our clinical trials we study several topics including:

  • Contrast agents for Magnetic Resonance and Computed Tomography imaging
  • Radioisotopes to alleviate cancer pain and shrink tumors
  • Less invasive methods of cancer staging
