Covid Calls

Vaccine Scheduling Update: We’re experiencing very high call volumes from people interested in getting the COVID-19 vaccine. Currently, our vaccine supply is very small, and we are unable to accept phone calls to schedule vaccine appointments. Please check back here for updates.

Sharing the outcomes of our research with the academic community has long been a source of pride at Penn Medicine’s Department of Radiology. The Department publishes numerous articles in prominent scientific journals (see below) as well as serving on a number of their editorial boards.
