Maine Medical Center Cancer Institute


Procedures performed by radiologists are being increasingly used in the care of patients with cancer. These specially trained physicians use X-rays, ultrasound or other imaging techniques to guide small tubes called catheters and miniature tools directly to the site of the disease. Radiology procedures for patients with cancer include new approaches for treatment, relieving symptoms and diagnosing cancer without surgical biopsy.

Maine Medical Center offers several different types of radiology. They include:

Virtual colonoscopy 

Interventional Radiology

Positron Emission Tomography (PET)

Breast MRI

Digital Mammography

Computed Tomography (CT) Scan
