About the Department of Diagnostic Imaging

Patient Care



Diversity Initiative

Rhode Island Hospital is designated a Level 1 Trauma Center and serves as the primary referral and teaching hospital for a catchment area of nearly two million people across three New England states. Together with Women & Infants Hospital—a dedicated facility for obstetrics, gynecology, and neonatology—Hasbro Children's Hospital, and the Miriam Hospital, residents within the Brown University hospital system are exposed to an abundance of patient and medical conditions, both common and rare. Moreover, Brown residents have the privilege to care for their patients alongside international leaders in all medical specialties.

Education is a central mission of the Department of Diagnostic Imaging at The Warren Alpert Medical School of Brown University. With over 500,000 imaging examinations performed annually, there is a broad array of diagnostic imaging and intervention opportunities that together provide an excellent clinical foundation for our residents. Moreover, in addition to our residency and fellowship programs, our department offers multiple electives in diagnostic imaging and interventional radiology for medical students.





The Division of Imaging Research was established in 1990 and has successfully completed both federally-funded and industry-sponsored research trials. The Division of Imaging Research  includes physician-researchers, non-physician researchers, and study coordinators. We have participated in federally-funded cancer imaging trials through the National Cancer Institute (NCI) and the American College of Radiology Imaging Network (ACRIN). We have also completed phase I, II, and III trials with several pharmaceutical companies, and have collaborated with many companies seeking premarket and post-market FDA approval for medical devices. We have extensive experience working with various clinical research organizations and are facile with data submission.
