Rajiv (Raj) Gupta, MD, PhD

Assistant Professor of Radiology, Director of the Ultra-high Resolution Volume CT Lab, and MGH Site Manager for the Center for Integration of Medicine and Innovative Technology (CIMIT)

Massachusetts General Hospital

Rajiv Gupta, MD, PhD received his BE (Hons) and MSc (Hons), in Electrical Engineering and Physics, respectively, from the Birla Institute of Technology and Science. He received his PhD in Computer Science from the State University of New York at Stony Brook, and his MD Degree from the Cornell University. Dr. Gupta completed his residency in Radiology at the Massachusetts General Hospital and Harvard Medical School in Boston where he is currently a Neuro and Cardiac Radiologist. At MGH, he is also the Site Miner for the Center for Integration of Medicine and Innovative Technologies. Gupta’s research is focused on development and clinical applications of Computed Tomography (CT) and Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI). At MGH, he directs the Ultra-high Resolution Volume CT lab that is developing a system for phase contrast X-ray imaging, a new paradigm that may enable vastly superior soft-tissue visualization at a much lower radiation dose. He has also worked on a prototype CT system based on flat-panel X-ray detectors that enables ultra-high spatial resolution, dynamic imaging of temporally evolving processes, image-guided interventions, and volumetric computed tomography. On a different project, Gupta is evaluating applications of quantitative MRI for assessment of traumatic brain injury.
