Radiological Sciences Misson Statment
To conduct basic and clinical research that will lead to new and/or
improved applications of physics for diagnosis and treatment of
disease. Our research focuses on medical imaging with particular
emphasis in 3-D imaging, image processing and analysis in order to
improve diagnosis, treatment and understanding of disease and
additional research focus is in the science of innovative communication
for improved training in radiology. Research themes in imaging are
strongly aligned with "minimally invasive medicine", the paradigm for
health care in the 21st century.
To provide imaging and analytical support of
radiologists and collaboration with other basic and clinical scientists
who will conduct research in all areas of medicine
To provide core instruction in medical physics and other basic sciences
for radiology fellows, radiology residents, medical students and
medical imaging technologists.
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
