About the Department of Diagnostic Imaging
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.
The Department of Diagnostic Imaging also maintains the facilities, equipment, and staff for the clinical 3D Lab service and the Hospital Imaging Research and Education Support (HI-RES) program. A state-of-the-art 1800 square foot lab in the hospital is equipped with ten high-end Mac, Linux, and Windows workstations, a teleconferencing/telemedicine system, non-clinical research data servers, and a computational research simulation and visualization bench. Workstations are setup with a variety of tools such as TeraRecon, Osirix, Velocity, FreeSurfer, 3D Slicer, COMSOL Multiphysics, Matlab, Mathematica, SAS, SPSS, AutoCAD, ITK, VTK, Python, VisualStudio, Xcode, Office, and the Adobe Creative Suite. The bench space can be configured with equipment and cameras for tracking, 3D capture, augmented reality, and stereo display. High performance computing, 3D printing, motion capture, and other 3D-related services are available through partnerships with other local facilities such as the Prince Engineering Lab and the Center for Computation and Visualization at Brown University, and the Gait Lab at the Veteran’s Administration (VA) Hospital.
The Department of Diagnostic Imaging at The Warren Alpert Medical School is strongly committed to diversity and inclusion. We strive to build a broadly diverse community within our department to promote a supportive culture of growth, engagement, and inclusion. Fostering diversity is paramount to providing the best possible care to our patients that come from many different backgrounds as well as to serve as role models for the newest generation of trainees.
