Mission

Mass General Imaging's Global Health Programs are dedicated to addressing unmet medical imaging needs and healthcare disparities for vulnerable and crisis-affected populations.

Programs

  • Education and Training: Our program in education and training is currently developing a number of initiatives to improve medical imaging knowledge globally. We are creating training programs in radiation safety, quality imaging management, medical imaging utilization, and essential diagnostic radiology and interventional skills. In addition, we are also establishing clinical-exchange programs with a multitude of sites around the globe.
  • Technology Transfer: Our program in Technology Transfer coordinates equipment procurement and transfer of needed medical imaging technology to areas of need and to other outreach organizations.
  • Research and Needs Assessment: Our program in research and needs assessment focuses on performing public health and needs assessment research in order to identify where medical imaging is needed. Through research, we can focus our collective efforts to better guide appropriate technology development, develop training programs, and deliver clinical services.
  • Clinical Service: Our program in clinical service aims to encourage service among trainees and staff level to participate in outreach activities locally and abroad. Via on-site and teleradiology services, we aim to collaborate and assist other medical outreach organizations.
  • Institution and Organizational development: Our program in institution and organization development is actively collaborating with other professional societies globally to create guidelines, training standards, imaging protocols, and patient safety programs to improve medical imaging access and care throughout the world.
