GA08 Radiology

Continuous advances in diagnostic imaging techniques have allowed physician to make highly accurate diagnoses, perform a close follow-up of the evolution of the disease and assess TJE response of a large number of nosologic entities to a range of drugs and therapies. The collaboration of the Diagnostic Radiology Unit has allowed to assess the effect of new drugs on the evolution of a large number of neoplasms, rheumatologic diseases, demyelinating diseases of the central nervous system or inflammatory diseases of the digestive tract. In other cases, the group has helped other researchers to quantify the prevalence of certain complications associated to different therapies such as corticosteroids-based therapies.

Apart from strictly diagnostic scans, the group also performs innovative interventional procedures. Among them, it is worth mentioning the intra-arterial infusion of autologous bone marrow mononuclear cells in diabetic and non-diabetic patients with chronic critical ischemia of the lower limbs.
