Faculty Research

To learn more about individual faculty members' research, see their faculty profiles. You can also visit our Clinical Radiology section to view the Research Direction for each individual service.

Postdoc & Graduate Research

Positions for graduate study are funded through individual faculty research grants as well as training grants to the section. Graduate students are typically admitted to programs in Engineering and Applied Science (Biomedical Engineering) or other related fields through the Yale Graduate School and follow a course of study that will complement their research activities within the section. Members of the section teach a number of courses that are part of these offerings, including: Physical and Chemical Basis of Biosensing, Physics of Medical Imaging and Digital Image Processing.

Post-doctoral trainees primarily perform focused research in collaboration with their faculty advisors in the section, but can also take advantage of course offerings through the Yale Graduate School of Arts and Sciences and the School of Medicine.

Resident Research

Resident research abounds with many residents presenting at national and international meetings as well as publishing their findings in peer-reviewed journals. Resident research has ranged from clinical investigations to bioimaging science studies, to medical management and public policy research.

Yale Diagnostic Radiology residents have routinely won nationally renown prestigious prizes and honors, including the top national prize in MRI sponsored by Bracco, a Fellowship sponsored by Amersham and The Body CT/MR Society, and a Magna Cum Laude Citation from the ASNM. Another recent honor was extended to one of our chief residents who authored a resolution regarding reimbursement rates for mammography and was passed at the recent AMA meeting.

In addition, Yale resident research is well represented at the annual radiology meetings every year since it's inception. One of our second year residents has been selected to attend the Introduction to Research Program sponsored by the RSNA/AUR/ARRS at either the RSNA or ARRS.
