Welcome to the Department of Radiology & Biomedical Imaging

Thank you for visiting the Yale Radiology & Biomedical Imaging website.

The first X-rays ever to be created in the United States took place at Yale University in 1898 by physicist Arthur W. Wright. Since then, Radiology & Biomedical Imaging at Yale University’s School of Medicine has developed into a pre-eminent academic teaching facility where cutting edge imaging takes place in three main arenas; diagnosis and patient care, image guided therapy and bio-imaging science research.

  • In 2015, Yale School of Medicine ranked 6th overall for NIH funding with Radiology ranking in the top ten.
  • High level research into MRI, MRS, PET and Image Processing is undertaken by over 60 research faculty and post-doctorates who together generated grants totaling in excess of $20M in 2012.
  • Yale-New Haven Hospital (YNHH) is the 5th largest hospital in the United States, and is ranked by U.S. News and World Report as one of the best hospitals in the country.
  • The Smilow Cancer Hospital at YNHH sees more oncology patients than any other hospital in the State.
  • Our equipment is some of the most technologically advanced available and includes an intraoperative MRI/IR/OR suite.
  • Our residency is the third largest in the United States and provides enviable training to the best and brightest in their field.

Please spend some time browsing our website and enjoy learning more about Yale Radiology & Biomedical Imaging and what it has to offer. Our Grand Rounds Calendar gives updated information on speakers, titles, dates, and times for each semi-monthly lecture.
