Research in the Department of Radiology is highly integrated with clinical practice and teaching, especially mentoring junior scientists to successful careers. The research efforts are spread across three main categories: Clinical Research, with eight clinical sections; Translational and Basic Research, with six sections; and Affiliated Labs and Departments: Center for Systems Imaging (CSI), and Biostatistics, Math/Computer Science, and the joint Emory/Georgia Tech Biomedical Engineering Department. The scientific disciplines include radiopharmaceutical chemistry, molecular imaging, cardiovascular imaging, physics and computing, magnetic resonance imaging and spectroscopy, CT, and instrument development.

The Department of Radiology at Emory is known worldwide for its scientific accomplishments and strong leadership in translational and basic research, including nuclear cardiology, radiopharmaceutical discovery, breast imaging, oncology, and functional MRI.
