Department of Diagnostic Radiology
The Mission of the Diagnostic Radiology Department at AUBMC is to provide the highest standards of imaging and interventional services at the lowest possible radiation exposure for patients and employees. We promote, embrace and honor the staff of today as the new leaders of tomorrow through a long standing tradition of Service Excellency, education and innovative research. We are dedicated to assisting the treating physician in the diagnosis and management of diseases and to promoting a culture of quality and patient-centered care.
The Vision of the Diagnostic Radiology Department at AUBMC is to be leaders in the provision of highest standards of imaging and interventional radiology services, in the promotion of quality patient care, and in the contribution to innovative research in diagnostic radiology at both the national and regional levels. We aim to update and expand our imaging facilities to accompany the technological advances in radiology and meet the increasing needs of imaging services.
General radiology and fluoroscopy
Ultrasonography: ultrasound machines with 2D and 3D capability along with color and duplex Doppler imaging. We also dedicate a separate room for ultrasound-guided procedures and 2 portable units for bedside examinations
Computed Tomography: providing the full range of studies from neuro and body imaging to coronary CT angiography, CT enterography and virtual colonoscopy.
Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI): providing the full range of studies from neuro and body imaging to MR spectroscopy, breast and genitourinary imaging, cardiac imaging and MR enterography.
Interventional Radiology (IR): provides a wide range of minimally-invasive radiological procedures, including vascular and non-vascular interventions using a fully equipped IR suite with state-of-the-art digital subtraction imaging, 3D roadmapping, CT like images, vessel navigation and CO2 view tracing.
The Mamdouha El Sayed Bobst Breast Unit (MSBBU): Digital mammography with tomosynthesis, Breast ultrasound, Interventional procedures such as biopsies and wire localization.
Nuclear Medicine, PET/CT and cyclotron unit:
Nuclear Medicine, as well as advanced studies which encompass cardiac stress/rest scanning, sentinel node localization, leukoscans and neurological studies for epilepsy. We also provide radionuclide treatments for prostate cancer and neuroendocrine tumors using Lu-177 radiopharmaceuticals as well as conventional radioiodine treatments for thyroid diseases.
IPET/CT is used to pinpoint the location of cancer within the body before making treatment recommendations and for assessment of treatment response, memory disorders, seizures and other central nervous system disorders.
Cyclotron produce a variety of isotopes on a local and regional scale. The cyclotron is a dual-ion-source/dual-target unit with energy of 18 MeV capable of producing various radioisotopes such as F-18, O-15, N-13 and C-11.
