The Russell H. Morgan Department of Radiology and Radiological Science touches virtually every patient who enters the Johns Hopkins health care system. Physicians across the enterprise consult with our subspecialty-trained physician-scientists to ensure treatment plans are developed accurately and to determine the efficacy of those treatments.
In addition to diagnostic imaging services, such as X-rays, CT and MRI, the department provides minimally invasive image-guided therapeutic procedures for cardiovascular and neurological conditions as well as a broad range of services for patients with cancer, pain, diabetes, liver disease, kidney disease and other conditions.
Many of the techniques for diagnosis and treatment of disease used around the world and throughout the field of radiology today were developed in the Russell H. Morgan Department of Radiology and Radiological Science with the philanthropic support of private individuals and charitable foundations, and funding from the National Institutes of Health.
Today, new research is targeting the very precise treatment of cancer using radiotracers absorbed into the tumor itself. An MRI technique that can tell the difference between cancerous and noncancerous cells is being studied. An alternative to bariatric surgery — working through a needle puncture instead of an incision — is being explored in a clinical trial.
The Russell H. Morgan Department of Radiology and Radiological Science is at the forefront of personalizing the treatment of disease. Thank you for your investment.
