The Department of Radiology at Brigham and Women’s Hospital is dedicated to research in various aspects of diagnostic imaging and related sciences. The Research Division provides resources for the development and application of advanced imaging systems and for the scientific evaluation of imaging technology. In this effort, the scientists work closely with the clinical sections of the Department, as well as with other groups within the Hospital, the Harvard Medical School, and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Various research projects are supported by federal and private grants, and there is extensive collaboration with multiple industrial partners.
