Dr. Gupta is a staff neuroradiologist and ER radiologist in the Department of Radiology at Massachusetts General Hospital, an Associate Professor of radiology at the Harvard Medical School, and a lecturer in Mechanical Engineering at MIT. He is interested in both research and clinical practice of radiology, currently devoting approximately 50% of his time to each of these activities. He also directs the Advanced X-ray Imaging Sciences (AXIS) Center at Mass General. His research is currently focused on three main topics: 1) development and clinical applications of novel X-ray imaging modalities including phase contrast imaging, ultra-high resolution computed tomography (CT), and dual-energy CT; 2) development of low-cost devices for imaging and image-guided interventions; and 3) study of traumatic brain injury (TBI) using advanced, quantitative MRI techniques.
