Welcome to BMC/BU RAD-AID, the RAD-AID Chapter of Boston Medical Center, Boston University School of Medicine, and Boston University
BMC/BU RAD-AID is a RAD-AID chapter of Boston Medical Center, Boston University School of Medicine and Boston University. It was started by an interested group of radiology residents, faculty, sonographers and technologists within the Department of Radiology at Boston Medical Center. We encourage participation from all individuals within the Boston University community with an interest in image based global health outreach.
BMC /BU RAD-AID’s philosophy mirrors the mission of RAD-AID as well as Boston Medical Center: Exceptional Care, Without Exception. We are interested in finding sustainable solutions to improve global access to medical imaging thru academic excellence, research and service to others in developing countries.
