The Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, a major teaching hospital of Harvard Medical School, is a level-one trauma center with over 700 beds. It is located in the Boston Longwood Medical Area, along with Harvard Medical School, Boston Children's Hospital, Brigham and Womens Hospital, Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, and Joslin Diabetes Center. The East Campus (formerly Beth Israel Hospital), the West Campus (formerly New England Deaconess Hospital), and the outpatient center (Carl J. Shapiro Clinical Center) are across the street from one another.
With a central role in clinical service, teaching, and research, the Radiology Department performs over 400,000 radiologic examinations each year. The department provides radiography, CT, ultrasound, MRI, nuclear medicine, angiography, and interventional radiology services to both the medical center as well as our affiliated health care facilities. A radiology research and animal laboratory is housed adjacent to the Radiology Department. There are over 65 full-time clinical diagnostic radiologists, 20 additional research faculty members, plus 30 clinical and post-doctoral research fellows. All residents, fellows, and faculty have appointments at Harvard Medical School.
