Welcome to Penn Medicine's Department of Radiology, a recognized world leader in radiological patient care. Our department is focused on the use of medical imaging to detect, diagnose and guide treatment of disease. Penn Radiology faculty perform more than a million diagnostic and therapeutic procedures annually across our network of academic centers, community hospitals and outpatient clinics. This enables us to give our patients access to a wide range of state-of-the-art imaging technologies, as well as radiological sub-specialty expertise in a setting that matches the patient’s needs.
From its beginning as one of the first radiology services in the world in 1896, Penn Radiology has been dedicated to research, practice innovation and education. We maintain a standing academic faculty of over 100 individuals who are among the world leaders in their subspecialties.
Our educational program, which draws students and radiological colleagues from around the globe, features an outstanding residency program, clinical fellowships and basic science graduate and post-doctoral programs, and extensive continuing education.
Our research program has a long and impressive track record of breakthroughs and innovations that have expanded our knowledge of the basic science of medical imaging, as well as clinical applications with more immediate, real-world uses. We believe our research program derives its strength from a multidisciplinary approach and integration between clinical, basic science and technology-focused research.
Whether taking care of patients or seeking out answers that will pave the way for new and improved treatments, the foundation of the Radiology Department's accomplishments is its people – the faculty and staff who teach, who conduct research, and who care for our patients.
We are proud to continue our more than 100-year tradition of advancing the educational, research and clinical frontiers of radiology, and look forward to the new discoveries that will refine and improve the practice of radiology in the years to come.
