Department of Radiology

The Department of Radiology offers comprehensive professional radiology services for patients through its physicians, technical and support staff. The department provides detection, diagnostic and therapeutic care at Houston Methodist and affiliated hospitals. Additionally, physicians are involved  in research and education within the Methodist System. 

The department is focused on continuously evolving and improving to provide capabilities based on rapid advances in leading edge imaging and computational technologies, supported by a research program housed in the Houston Methodist Research Institute and the Translational Imaging Center.  The TIC houses four major cores based on an array of MRI, PET, preclinical imaging systems, a cyclotron and a GMP lab, with numerous imaging scientists and support staff.  The department supports highest quality of care and precision imaging diagnostics and imaging-guided therapeutics.  We have a competitive residency program entering its 5th year.  The practice is based on a subspecialty fellowship trained organization around organ-specific divisions, including neuroradiology, cardiothoracics, abdominal-pelvic, musculoskeletal, breast imaging, nuclear medicine, breast imaging, vascular interventional and neurointerventional radiology. The practice serves the greater Houston region performing ~1.3 million studies per year. The department is highly collaborative and supports research and clinical trials activities across all the major specialties

The mission of the Department of Radiology is to provide outstanding clinical care through expertise in interpretation and professional services, through innovative and advanced imaging research, and through excellence in teaching and mentoring.

The vision of the Department of Radiology is to be the premier academic radiology program in Texas, and world leading in technology innovation, research and clinical translation.

The department embraces the Houston Methodist ICARE values.
