Radiology – Medical Imaging

The radiology department of the Institut Jules Bordet  brings together the various medical imaging techniques, except for nuclear medicine.

The techniques concerned are:

  • conventional radiology (radiography including mammography and bone densitometry),
  • tomodensitometry (X-ray scanning), 
  • ultrasound (ultrasound imaging),
  • magnetic resonance imaging (MRI).

Although some interventional radiology techniques can have a therapeutic aim, the activities of the radiology department are mainly diagnostic. Our main tasks are:

  • the diagnostic identification of tumours, their extent and their complications,
  • the preparation of their treatment (in particular targeting the area to be irradiated),
  • monitoring the lesions under treatment.

These main tasks are performed in the context of a multidisciplinary collaboration. The radiology department therefore works closely with the nuclear medicine, medical, surgical and radiotherapy departments of the Institut Jules Bordet.
