In the Department of Radiology at Boston Children’s Hospital (BCH), research is focused on innovative radiological imaging aimed at providing the highest quality health care. Research imaging has developed unprecedented capabilities to probe the mechanisms that underlie disease, new imaging techniques that enhance the detection and characterization of disease, and innovative interventions for the treatment of disease. Our research activities span a broad spectrum—from fundamental contributions in basic science through translational research that has brought innovations into everyday practice, to clinical research that is revolutionizing our ability to prevent, diagnose, treat and monitor disease.
Research projects sponsored by the members of our Department are numerous. Featured researchers in the Department of Radiology hold faculty appointments at Harvard Medical School.
