Research and Clinical Trials
The Department of Radiology supports research in medical imaging and image-guided therapies. This section highlights some of the larger, externally-funded, and cross-disciplinary research programs.
Our research brings together medical and scientific professionals from:
- Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center (DHMC)
- The Dartmouth Institute for Health Policy and Clinical Practice (TDI)
- The Geisel School of Medicine at Dartmouth
- Norris Cotton Cancer Center (NCCC)
- Thayer School of Engineering at Dartmouth
Through this collaboration, we are a leader in many areas of medical imaging research.
As the only Academic Medical Center in New Hampshire, Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center and the Dartmouth-Hitchcock Health System have many active trials that are enrolling patients across the system.
A clinical trial/study is research in which people can participate and is one of the final steps in the process to look for better ways to prevent, diagnose, or treat your condition. The purpose of a clinical trial/study is to research the effectiveness of a treatment, medication, experimental drug, or device. Many of the "standard treatments" that patients receive today were developed based on the results of previous clinical trials.
