The Mass General Imaging Team
Mass General Imaging is one of the largest departments at Massachusetts General Hospital. We scan hundreds of thousands of patients each year to help them get the care they need. Our team of radiologists, nurses, technologists and care coordinators looks for every opportunity to understand and help our patients.
The History of Medical Imaging
The evolution of imaging is our past and our future.
Since inventing the first X-ray machine for medical use in 1896, we have pioneered new technologies and techniques as the world’s largest hospital-based imaging research facility. Today, our labs are developing powerful new ways to look inside the human body.
Patients as Partners
All patients are welcome at Mass General.
We want to understand all of our patients to help them feel welcome. They share their stories and we answer their questions. We work with our patients as partners, giving them and their doctors the information needed to make the care decisions right for them.
