Dr. Roxanna Juarez is a radiologist who specializes in the use of molecular imaging – visualization techniques at the cellular level – to diagnose and treat various medical conditions, including cancer. She cares for both children and adults. In research, she focuses on using novel imaging agents (compounds containing radioactive material to enable tracing of biological processes) to fine-tune findings from PET and CT imaging before and after treatment.
