The clinical research mission of the Department of Radiology is to disseminate innovative work in imaging for infants, children, and pregnant women using state-of-the-art imaging technologies. The Department of Radiology is an accredited facility, recognized by the American College of Radiology for its commitment to safe imaging practices in computed tomography (CT), magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), nuclear medicine, and ultrasound.

The Department conducts translational and clinical research that is broadly related to pediatrics, including interventional radiology, musculoskeletal radiology, cardiovascular, lymphatic, and pulmonary imaging, oncology, emergency radiology, fetal and neonatal imaging, gastrointestinal and genitourinary imaging, and neuroradiology.

Vice Chair for Clinical Research Dr. Savvas Andronikou, leads the Radiology Research Core and supports radiologists, clinical fellows, research fellows, and postdocs with their research work. The overall goal of the core is to conduct, publish, and disseminate novel research.

Clinical research in the Department of Radiology at CHOP is an enterprise which continues to grow with each new seed of ambition. We are committed to pursuing innovation and excellence in diagnostic imaging research while never losing sight of the ultimate mission to advance children's health.
