Department of Diagnostic Imaging


With over 60 faculty members, the Department of Diagnostic Imaging at Brown University's Alpert Medical School provides services at four Brown-affiliated hospitals with more than 500,000 imaging examinations performed annually. Faculty members have subspecialty training and engage in a wide range of research programs, including multicenter trials and work done through Brown University's MRI Research Facility. ACGME-accredited post-graduate training programs are offered in several diagnostic radiology subspecialties, including interventional radiology.


The department offers both a diagnostic radiology residency and an interventional radiology residency. In addition to our IR residency, we have an IR fellowship, a body imaging fellowship and a breast imaging fellowship, which  provide opportunities for further post-graduate training. With a total of 36 trainees in the department we are focused and dedicated to our educational mission.


We welcome you to learn more about our department.
