The Department of Radiology at University of Massachusetts (UMass) Medical School maintains an excellent academic environment with a strong commitment to research and teaching under the chairmanship of a world-renowned leader in Radiology, Max Rosen, M.D. Imaging physics in breast imaging, diagnostic and interventional radiology, nuclear medicine imaging physics, MRI imaging, molecular imaging, and radiopharmaceutical research are areas of particular strength in the department. Research efforts in the department of radiology cover a wide range of disciplines. Various NIH funded research projects in SPECT, MRI, molecular imaging, breast imaging, radiopharmaceutical development and interventional radiology are currently in progress with collaborations between faculty in the department of radiology and faculty from within UMass Medical School and other institutions such as Worcester Polytechnic Institute.

Laboratory

Dr. Glick’s laboratory contains a bench-top, prototype breast CT system with appropriate shielding and power. Sufficient office space is available for graduate students and post-doctoral fellows. The area includes offices, cubicles, a small conference room and two specialized rooms available for human observer studies, each with adjustable lighting. The lab has access to the University’s high-performance computing cluster.
