Debra A Gervais, MDChief, AbdominalImaging Division
We are dedicated to providing the highest quality care in a personalized environment that combines compassion with proven research advances. One of our top priorities is ease of access. We pride ourselves on responsiveness to patient inquiries and physician contacts. The abdominal and pelvic radiologists at Massachusetts General Hospital are internationally recognized experts in minimally invasive, image-guided treatments. We offer a comprehensive range of image-guided therapies for cancers of the abdomen and pelvis, including radiofrequency ablation, cryoablation, and microwave ablation, as well as the full gamut of fluoroscopic and cross-sectional interventions.
Our radiologists are also recognized authorities in diagnostic imaging of the abdomen and pelvis, and are able to provide expert interpretation of the broad range of diagnostic imaging tests that we offer. Our areas of expertise include abdominal and pelvic CT scanning, including an active CT colonography program, abdominal MRI, and advanced ultrasound techniques. Our state-of-the-art equipment includes MRI (magnetic resonance imaging), CT (computed tomography), digital fluoroscopy, positron emission tomography (PET) and numerous ultrasound units. Most of our radiologists are dual subspecialists in abdominopelvic imaging and interventional radiology, and we are widely recognized for our ability to provide comprehensive and integrated service across the full range of imaging and image-guided minimally invasive therapies. Our group is widely published in the radiological literature and our physicians speak at many scientific meetings. A particular strength is our close working relationship with other specialists, such as endocrinologists, endocrine surgeons, hepatobiliary and pancreatic surgeons, medical oncologists, hepatologists, urologists, gynecologic oncologists and gynecologic surgeons. We are fortunate to be able to bring a coordinated, coherent and multidisciplinary approach to the evaluation and treatment of patients.
