Dr. Thomas Hudson is a diagnostic radiologist specializing in breast imaging. He attended medical school at the University of Maryland in Baltimore, and completed his radiology residency at Walter Reed Army Medical Center in Washington, D.C. After his time in the Army, which included an overseas tour to Germany, he settled in Naples, FL, where he served for 15 years as Director of Women’s Imaging at Naples Diagnostic Imaging Centers. In 1992 he was named “Doctor of the Year” at Naples Community Hospital. From 2005 to 2013, Dr. Hudson served as an independent women’s imaging consultant, based primarily in Orlando, FL. In 2013, he returned to Naples, now serving as Director of Women’s Imaging for the Naples Community Hospital Outpatient Centers.

Dr. Hudson is a unique radiologist. He has gone beyond the traditional radiologist’s role of reading films in a dark room, speaking to no one.  In his current practice, he personally sees every screening mammogram patient and discusses their results with them before they leave, greatly reducing the fear and anxiety surrounding the breast screening process.

Believing in a mind-body-spirit approach to health, Dr. Hudson offers patients far more than his expertise in image interpretation. He discusses screening controversies, counsels women about breast cancer risk, helps them with the mental and emotional aspects of the process, and encourages them to focus on prevention and general health. He empowers them with information about nutrition, meditation, and mental imagery, and even provides occasional intuitive readings.

Dr. Hudson has a special interest in alternative/complementary medicine. He is on the faculty of the Center for Mind-Body Medicine in Washington, DC, and is one of the only conventionally trained breast imaging specialists to understand both mammography and thermography, currently serving as President of the American College of Clinical Thermology (ACCT).

He is the author of the book, Journey to Hope, which offers a mind-body-spirit approach to breast cancer prevention and general health, and includes chapters on nutrition, meditation, mental imagery, spirituality, and relationships. He speaks to audiences of all sizes, facilitates small groups, and offers phone consultations for women who wish to better understand their thermogram or mammogram results, have doubts about a biopsy recommendation, or who have been recently diagnosed with breast cancer.
