Interim Chair of the Department of Radiology, Chair of the Department of Radiation Oncology, and Professor of Radiation Oncology


The Department of Radiology at Temple University is a busy clinical and educational operation.  In addition, research projects flourish in a number of areas.


The clinical practice is based in Temple University Hospital (TUH) and the Boyer Pavilion, which are immediately adjacent to each other and are connected by a bridge. They are directly across Broad Street from Temple University School of Medicine.  The clinical radiology service also serves the Episcopal Hospital Campus, the Northeastern Campus, the Jeanes Hospital Campus, and the newest addition, the Fox Chase Cancer Center Campus.  The clinical service at TUH is covered by residents and faculty members and is organized by subspecialty into abdominal imaging, mammography, neuroradiology, interventional radiology, interventional neuroradiology, nuclear medicine, musculoskeletal radiology, general radiology, and chest and cardiac imaging.  Approximately 400,000 exams per year are performed.


The Radiology Residency Program has six residents per year for a total of 24 residents. In addition, 12 to 15 medical students are assigned to radiology rotations each month. The clinical rotations are bolstered by two daily lectures.


Clinical research in all subspecialities is well represented and numerous protocols are underway. Collaborations with other departments are typical and include both clinical and basic science departments. Currently, ongoing research is supported in magnetic resonance, brain physiology, nuclear medicine, molecular imaging, and in mechanisms underlying millimeter wave theory.


The Department of Radiology offers strong clinical services, an excellent training environment, and fertile research opportunities.


Thank you for visiting.
