Innovative Research

Cardiothoracic Division faculty and fellows engage in a wide range of clinical imaging and technology-based research that translate into advances that make a difference.

Specialized Services

We provide advanced technologies, innovative imaging services, and exceptional care, informed by exceptional ground-breaking research.

Advanced Technologies

Dr. Joseph Mammarappallil is investigating non-invasive techniques for diagnosing lung disease and predicting outcomes using MRI.


Making a Difference

Lung Cancer Screening services are still not reaching patients who need it most. Dr. Tina Tailor’s research provides insights into factors affecting access to this life-saving service.


Translational Science

What if diagnosing lung cancer, determining optimal treatment, and predicting prognosis were as simple as a blood test? Dr. Ned Patz’s pioneering work may very well make this a new diagnostic reality.
