The clinic, with a separate women’s imaging center, will be for patients with confirmed cancer diagnoses or those with doctors’ referrals. The center will be for all cancer patients, regardless where they receive treatment or prefer to have treatment if cancer is detected.

The center’s services will include magnetic resonance imaging, computed tomography, positron emission tomography, general and Doppler ultrasound for diagnostics and biopsies and digital X-ray.

The women’s imaging center has technologies that will allow for same-day diagnosis. Digital mammography for screening and diagnostics also will be available.

The center will include lab and cytopathology services to detect and determine the stage of cancers. Dr. Monica Huang, the center’s medical director, and a team of radiologists, imaging nurses, technologists and administrative employees will staff the center.
