From the June 2018 issue of HealthCare Business News magazine
In the near future, we hope to take these practices beyond the Texas Medical Center and deliver cutting-edge care to patients closer to home. To achieve this vision, Baylor College of Medicine and Radiology Partners are working together to bring the most advanced diagnostic and therapeutic medical technologies out of the academic center and into our large network of community hospitals throughout the U.S. A prostate cancer imaging program, led by Axumin PET scanning, is an example of the type of game-changing innovation that can arise out of an academic-private partnership such as that between Baylor College of Medicine and Radiology Partners.
