Biography

Rob Goodman, MBBChir, MBA, chair of Radiology & Biomedical Imaging at Yale Medicine, enjoys helping improve children’s health and wellbeing. “Being able to talk to children during their imaging, put them at ease and make them smile is just the frosting on the cake,” he says.

Dr. Goodman, who is also a professor of Radiology & Biomedical Imaging at Yale School of Medicine, recognizes the pivotal role diagnostic imaging plays in health care today. MRIs, CT-scans, X-rays and ultrasounds are instrumental in helping radiologists make diagnoses in both pint-sized and adult patients so that proper treatment can begin.

Keeping children safe during imaging is of paramount importance to Dr. Goodman and the entire pediatric radiology team. “We have worked hard at making sure the radiation dose received by pediatric patients having CT-scans at Yale New Haven Children's Hospital are some of the lowest in the country,” he says.

“Parents are reassured by being reminded that this is a children's hospital where everyone and everything is geared around the needs of their child. Patients are reassured by knowing that they get a prize at the end of an imaging study!”
