On-line evaluation of the fellow by the faculty
would be performed every quarter. A procedure log for each trainee

The main hospital on campus has about 450 beds with
accredited residency programs in Neurosurgery, Orthopedics, Oncology,
Neurology, ENT, Internal Medicine, Surgery, Pediatrics, Family Medicine
and other sub-specialty disciplines. Two new surgical towers are in the
planning stages. The projected equipment on the main campus will
include, as of 2011-12, three 1.5 T units, one 3 T unit (impending
installation), 6 CT's (two 64 detectors and a 128 detector (
installation pending), two biplane angiography suites (installation
pending of a new state of the art unit) and one CT/PET unit. This
includes the latest high end MR and neuro/interventional angiography
systems. Breast Imaging is equipped with state of the art film screen
system and digital mammography units, ultrasonography and Mamotome
Biopsy and Breast MRI.
There is one stand alone Diagnostic Imaging Center
and an additional larger advanced imaging department as part of a
100,000 square foot Ambulatory Surgical Center (ASC). These two sites
are located off the island in Pearland and League City (Victory Lakes)
that opened in 2010. They are located about halfway between Galveston
Island and Houston. The equipment is state of the art with a new 3 T
Siemens Verio, an open 1.5 Siemens Espree, a new 1.5 GE MRI, two 64
detector CT's (one dual energy), biplane Siemens and single plane angio
suites, and a SPECT CT. A PET/CT unit will be added in two years, for
use when the stand alone Oncology Center is finished.
UTMB's Department of Radiology is accredited by the American College of
Radiology in: Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI), Computed Tomography
(CT), Nuclear Medicine, and Ultrasound. It is also recognized as a
Center of Excellence for Breast Imaging.
