Department of Radiology
The Department of Radiology is committed to bringing state-of-the-art technology to Burlington to advance clinical care and conduct research. The MRI Research Team is working on ways to predict degenerative disk disease of the spine, a major cause of low back pain. Department faculty members have also tested new software that improves doctors’ ability to quickly diagnose myocardial infarctions and strokes. Other research highlights in the Department include:
- Sally Herschorn, M.D., is one of the investigators on the PROSPR (Population-Based Research Optimizing Screening through Personalized Regimens) grant: Reducing Overtreatment Due to Screening: Identifying Markers of DCIS Progression: Grant from National Cancer Institute/National Institutes of Health (NIH)/Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS).
- In 2012, Department faculty contributed to over 50 presentations, publications and exhibits at regional and national meetings.
- Dorothy Sippo, M.D., MPH, brings to the department experience using informatics in breast cancer research. Before coming to the College of Medicine, she completed the first-ever breast imaging and informatics fellowship at Brigham and Women’s Hospital.
