The University of North Texas Health Science Center, in collaboration with Radiology Associates of Tarrant County, will host a grand opening on Thursday, Aug. 18, from 4-8 p.m. for their new state-of-the art imaging center. The imaging center is located in the Center for BioHealth at 3400 Camp Bowie Boulevard.

The Imaging Center will be used for research purposes, specifically in the health science centerâ??s Diabetes Research Education and Metabolic Studies (DREAMS) research project that is targeting the Hispanic population of Tarrant County. Other research uses include studies on heart disease, diabetes, cancer, manipulative medicine and AIDS.

The new Imaging Center will be able to perform diagnostic radiologic scans such as CT scans, which are valuable in the detection and staging of breast cancer, lung cancer, colorectal cancer, lymphoma, melanoma, head and neck cancer, esophageal cancer and thyroid cancer. Other diagnostic studies performed at the center include MRI, ultrasound and x-rays.

â??The opening of this new imaging center in conjunction with Radiology Associates is an exciting venture for the UNT Health Science Center,â? said Ronald Blanck, DO, president of the health science center. â??We are looking forward to the great work that can be accomplished in patient care, research and education that can be accomplished by this wonderful collaboration.â?

A grand opening program, including remarks from Dr. Blanck, U.S. Rep. Kay Granger, Chief Executive Officer of Radiology Associates Lynn Elliott, and Dr. Richard Jensen of Radiology Associates will highlight the evening beginning at 5:30 p.m. Guests will also be able to take a look at the state-of-the art facility and set up appointments at the health science centerâ??s new Center for Executive Health and Wellness.

Radiology Associates is one of the largest radiology groups in the entire nation, serving the Metroplex for more than 60 years. The group has more than 60 board-certified members who provide inpatient and outpatient diagnostic radiology and imaging services across Tarrant County.

The new Imaging Center at the health science center will be the eighth operated in Tarrant County by Radiology Associates.
