Description

The Gustave Roussy Medical Imaging Department is organised in three major sectors:

  • The work of the Diagnostic Imaging Department focuses on establishing a diagnosis, characterising the tumour lesions, and investigating for distant spread. It also ensures follow-up and assessment of treatment. All of this is based on a variety of imaging modalities (ultrasound, CT, MRI, mammography etc.).
  • The Therapeutic Imaging Department employs «mini-invasive» diagnostic and therapeutic techniques. By virtue of specific innovatory methods (radiofrequency ablation and cryotherapy), it is possible to use various types of imaging to guide access to tumours (interventional radiology).
  • The Nuclear Medicine and Endocrinology Department is responsible for comprehensive management of endocrine gland tumours: thyroid, adrenal and neuroendocrine. This unit depends on technical imaging facilities employing radio-isotopes (isotope scanning and PET-scan) which facilitate the administration of radio-isotope treatment.  

Clinical research

Diagnostic Imaging Department

  • Evaluation of the role of breast tomosynthesis
  • Definition of the place of spectral imaging in ENT conditions

  • Continuing developments in angiomammography
  • New assessment criteria in clinical research (in collaboration with DITEP)

Therapeutic Imaging Department

  • Optimisation of treatment of bone pain in interventional radiology / radiotherapy 
  • Ablation of lung tumours by cryotherapy 
  • MEDICEN / BPI / industrial consortium project: improved chemoembolisation agents in hepatocellular carcinoma (CHC) and multimodal imaging guidance of needles in treatment of CHC
  • Participation in more than 80 therapeutic trials using biopsy techniques 

Nuclear Medicine Department
