About St. Jude Children's Research Hospital, Department of Diagnostic Imaging
Departmental Focus: As the only broad-based pediatric radiology program committed largely to childhood cancer, Diagnostic Imaging has a fundamental role in improving the quality of patient care and outcomes for children with catastrophic diseases. Our focus on exceptional and specialized imaging via multiple modalities to guide diagnosis and therapy monitoring is balanced with a drive to explore research technologies that enhance diagnostic accuracy through our Vision Lab and Molecular Imaging Core. In addition, our research endeavors span multiple facets of imaging from functional MRI to spectroscopy, metabolic imaging, a growing Interventional Radiology section, as well as preclinical development of new imaging techniques, to name only a few.
As a Center of Quantitative Imaging Excellence (CQIE) designation awarded by the National Cancer Institutes and American College of Radiology Imaging Network, we function in three sections: Body Imaging, Neuroimaging, and Nuclear Medicine.
