Radiology Research Division

Welcome to the website for the Research Division of The Department of Radiology at The University of Massachusetts Medical School.

drKingThe mission of the investigators within our division is to play a significant role in transforming the way we obtain and utilize anatomical and functional information thereby enabling earlier detection, better delineation, and improved treatment of disease.

Our division has experienced an unprecedented growth since 2003 as illustrated by a tripling in research space and a doubling in research funding. To our already internationally recognized research groups in Nuclear Medical and Mammographic Physics, and Biomarker Development we have added outstanding research groups in the areas of Molecular Imaging, Interventional Neuroradiology, MRI and MR, and Radiological Physics. Our new Center for Innovative Imaging and Intervention houses the New England Center for Stroke Research which is equipped with a Philips Allura Xper fd20, a single plane rotational x-ray system, the Advanced Magnetic Resonance Imaging Center which is equipped with a Philips 3T Achieva MRI with multinuclear capabilities, and a Pre-clinical Imaging Facility equipped with a Philips Mosaic micro-PET and a Bioscan Nano SPECT/CT. For FY2011 we were ranked 23d in terms of funds received among the departments of radiology with NIH funding (ranking on Academy of Radiology Research website)

We hope you find the website informative. Please contact me, Ms. Ella Covello our administrator, or any of the faculty with questions.
