The Department of Radiology at H. Lee Moffitt Cancer Center & Research Institute provides all the diagnostic and interventional imaging services for the clinical programs. The departmental mission is to contribute to the prevention and cure of cancer through excellent clinical imaging services, education and research. The department is composed of a team of highly dedicated physicians, nurses, technologists and staff who specialize in cancer imaging for screening, diagnosis, intervention and surveillance.
The department provides all types of imaging services and modalities: conventional X-ray, mammography, fluoroscopy, ultrasound (sonography), computed tomography (CT), magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), nuclear imaging (radioisotope studies), positron emission tomography (PET), image-guided biopsies, and both vascular and nonvascular interventional services. The department has converted to an integrated Picture Archiving, Communication and Storage (PACS) system that has essentially replaced standard X-ray films. At Moffitt Cancer Center, virtually all images are acquired in digital format, interpreted on electronic PACS workstations ("soft-copy" interpretation), filed and stored electronically, and distributed to clinicians by means of an in-house electronic network and the World Wide Web. This new technology provides greater efficiency, accuracy and satisfaction by patients and clinicians.
