Evelyne M. Loyer, M.D.

Present Title & Affiliation

Primary Appointment

Professor, Department of Diagnostic Radiology, Division of Diagnostic Imaging, The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center, Houston, TX

Bio Statement

Dr. Evelyne Loyer is a Professor of Radiology and a board-certified radiologist in the Department of Diagnostic Radiology at MD Anderson Cancer Center. Dr. Loyer has served as a radiologist with MD Anderson Cancer Center since 1990.

Dr. Loyer's clinical research focuses on the imaging of hepatobiliary malignancies particularly, preoperative staging and assessment of the response to chemotherapy. Dr. Loyer developed non size based criteria of response to bevacizumab, which correlate with the pathologic response in patients with metastatic colorectal carcinoma. Radiographic observations have also lead to the development of the new pathologic indicator of response in the same patient's population.
