Diagnostic Radiology
Diagnostic radiology can help determine the cause of symptoms you may be experiencing and as a screening test for diseases like breast cancer, colon cancer or heart disease. It also is used to monitor your body’s response to treatment you may be receiving for a specific condition or disease.  Common diagnostic radiology exams available at Houston Methodist include the following:

Interventional Radiology

When a diagnosis or treatment requires looking directly inside your body through a camera or during open surgery, interventional radiology is the technique of choice. Our interventional board-certified radiologists are extensively trained in this field. After a small incision, imaging technologies like CT, ultrasound, MRI and fluoroscopy help the radiologist guide instruments into your body. Interventional radiology is used when treating cancers, tumors, vein or artery blockages, fibroids in the uterus, back pain, and problems with the liver and kidney. The types of procedures that fall under the interventional radiology category include the following:
