Massachusetts General Hospital employs more than 100 board-certified radiologists and has gained distinction for the specialty expertise these physicians hold in specific clinical areas.

In addition to the general training all radiologists receive, our specialty-trained doctors have additional education and extensive real-world training in the interpretation of exam images for their chosen area of specialization. In addition, they possess comprehensive knowledge of how specific types of imaging technology reveal key diagnostic information.
