About Us

Penn's Department of Radiology stands at the pinnacle of academic radiology in the United States and abroad. Led by a world-renowned faculty, the Department offers a wide array of outstanding education, research, and clinical service programs with a deep commitment to developing and disseminating subspecialty expertise. The Department consists of two main Divisions: the traditional Academic Program clinically centered at the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania, Penn Presbyterian Medical Center, Children's Hospital of Philadelphia, and the Veterans Administration Medical Center; and Community Radiology covering Pennsylvania Hospital, Phoenixville Hospital, Chester County Hospital, and four outpatient imaging centers. Penn Radiology continues to rank at the top among United States medical school radiology departments in the amount of funding it receives from the National Institutes of Health (NIH) for radiology research.

The Department's strengths begin with its people - faculty and staff. All full-time faculty participate in educational activities and most in research programs, but there is a degree of specialization within the group - three-quarters of the faculty provide clinical care and one quarter are dedicated to research. Radiology's most prestigious professional organizations and associations have repeatedly recognized the quality of Department faculty by electing them to positions of leadership and conferring upon them the discipline's major awards and honors.

Department faculty work closely with members of the support staff. A great majority participate in the provision of clinical services to patients, with others filling a wide range of professional research, educational, and administrative support roles. The strength of the faculty rests upon the vitality of those who work with them.

Penn radiologists practice at Penn Medicine Radnor and numerous other suburban outpatient practices and facilities throughout Bucks, Chester and Montgomery counties including The Chester County Hospital in West Chester.

Penn radiologists - physicians who specialize in the study of radiology - are board certified, subspecialty or fellowship trained in imaging. Our radiologists have made major contributions in the development and technological advancement of:
