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 many diseases. From the lab to the clinic, our community of radiologists and researchers are bringing advances directly to our patients.
3D Imaging Lab
The 3D Imaging Lab conducts translational research on using CAD and quantitative disease analysis on medical images to enhance patient care.
The Augmented Reality and Virtual Reality (AR/VR) Lab at Mass General fosters the development of innovative imaging processes by producing an immersive environment to improve patient-centered care, enhance diagnosis and treatment, and elevate medical education. AR/VR allows medical professionals to simulate routine patient care and practice skills using innovative 3D technology.
