Disease Diagnosis

Our interventional radiologists use the latest imaging technologies to assist their colleagues in making difficult diagnoses.

We are able to biopsy hard-to-reach parts of the body, using minimally invasive techniques to diagnose cancer, infectious diseases, inflammatory diseases, and other benign processes. Results from these biopsies may be used by our world-class oncologists, infectious disease specialists, rheumatologists, kidney and liver specialists, and surgeons to make important treatment decisions.

We also offer venous sampling procedures, which help with diagnosing difficult endocrine disorders such as hypertension, adrenal adenomas, and pituitary and pancreatic tumors.

UT Southwestern’s Comprehensive Noninvasive Vascular Imaging Laboratory uses state-of-the-art CT scanners, MRI scanners, and ultrasound imaging equipment to diagnose vascular diseases and assist our cardiologists, cardiothoracic surgeons, and vascular surgeons with diagnosing and planning surgical procedures.

Our minimally invasive techniques offer fewer risks and shorter recovery times. These techniques include:

  • Image-guided biopsies
  • Venous sampling procedures
  • Diagnostic angiography

How We’re Different

Our interventional radiologists are specialists in minimally invasive techniques. In addition to the training that all radiologists receive, these specialists have additional fellowship training in interventional radiology, plus extensive real-world experience.

Our team of interventional radiologists and physician assistants coordinates your complete care – from imaging evaluation to post-procedure follow-up – maintaining a high level of communication with you throughout the process.

In addition, we coordinate closely with experts from across the UT Southwestern community.
