Committed to innovation & teamwork
Alice Ettinger, MD, a pioneer in our field, established the first radiology residency program at Tufts School of Medicine in 1945 and founded our hospital's Radiology Department.
Dr. Ettinger's legacy lives on today, as our radiologists share a commitment to exploring innovative new uses of imaging technologies. Our radiologists are also united in their belief in teamwork. They frequently consult with referring specialists throughout Tufts MC in diagnosing diseases and injuries and determining treatment plans.
Radiologists are the physicians behind the scenes who evaluate your images and provide your doctor with a report. Our radiology team also includes more than 100 imaging technologists and 13 nurses. In most cases, these are the main people with whom you will interact before and during your imaging procedure. They take great pride in answering your questions, easing your worries and offering comfort when you need it most. As a patient, though, please feel free to ask to see a radiologist at any time.
No matter what health challenges you may face, the Radiology Department is here to serve you. Our dedicated, compassionate team will do everything possible to make an accurate, prompt diagnosis that gives you your best chance at recovery.
