Department of Diagnostic Imaging


With nearly 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's radiology residency program currently enrolls twenty-eight residents, graduating seven residents per year. Our one-year fellowship in vascular and interventional radiology offers three positions each year. Our one-year fellowship in breast imaging offers two positions each year. Finally, our body imaging fellowship offers two positions per year.
