Radiology - Diagnostic Imaging

Diagnostic imaging is a critical part of the diagnostic process. Imaging scans allow oncologists to determine if cancer might be present, even if a tumor is still in its earliest stages. If a patient’s imaging results indicate something unusual, additional testing (such as a biopsy) can then be ordered.

At Moffitt Cancer Center, we offer a variety of superior diagnostic imaging services in a three convenient locations. From basic digital radiography to advanced modalities that can detect even the smallest abnormalities, we offer the latest technologies for tumor detection and staging. As a result, we have the ability to detect even the rarest cancers in their earliest stages, a key step in improving patient outcomes. Our Diagnostic Imaging Program is equipped to provide the following diagnostic imaging procedures: 

Depending on the situation, two or more of these diagnostic imaging techniques may be performed at the same time. For instance, patients may receive PET/CT scans or SPECT/CT scans. A multispecialty team of oncologists, nurses, radiologists and technologists will assess each patient’s unique situation to determine the most appropriate options.

Our radiologists are board-certified by the American Board of Radiology or the American Board of Nuclear Medicine, and are also fellowship-trained in a specialty such as breast imaging, nuclear medicine, body imaging or interventional radiology. Our interventional radiologists specialize in using X-rays, CT scans and MRIs to perform minimally invasive treatments for a wide range of cancers.
