Molecular Imaging and Nuclear Medicine
Nuclear Medicine techniques are often used to look at many organ systems in the body and determine a patient’s best treatment option. These techniques use positron emission tomography (PET), which is used in the staging, re-staging, and evaluation process of the therapeutic response in a variety of cancers.

Musculoskeletal Imaging involves taking pictures of bones, joints, ligaments, tendons, and muscles for effective diagnosis and treatment of conditions.
Neuro-Interventional Radiology provides a range of innovative, minimally invasive services and treatment options for cerebrovascular diseases.
Neuro Radiology provides images that focus on the diagnosis and characterization of abnormalities in the central system including the brain, spine, head, and neck.
Pediatric Imaging services are available at Boston Medical Center for patients ranging from newborns to young adults.
An X-ray is a painless, non-invasive way to help diagnose problems such as broken bones, tumors, or pneumonia. For visualization of the digestive system, it may be required to drink a liquid contrast material to view your anatomy in "real time." Most x-rays are now performed digitally which produce better quality images and also help to reduce length of time it takes to perform the exam.
