Pioneering Patient Care

For over 100 years, the Department of Radiology at Massachusetts General Hospital has pioneered imaging technology to improve human health.

Today, our research labs are developing powerful new ways to diagnose and treat disease. We can create molecular images that lead to early diagnosis. We can map internal pathways to deliver targeted therapies, and we can see real-time changes when our patients respond to new therapies.

From the lab to the clinic, our community of radiologists and researchers are bringing advances like these directly to our patients.
