Dr. Pandharipande is an Associate Professor of Radiology at Harvard Medical School, a Radiologist in Abdominal Imaging at Massachusetts General Hospital, and the Director of the MGH Institute for Technology Assessment. She is a graduate of Cornell University (BA), Cornell University Medical College (MD), and the Harvard School of Public Health (MPH). She completed her residency in diagnostic radiology at NYU, and an NCI-sponsored fellowship in cancer outcomes research and abdominal imaging at MGH. Dr. Pandharipande's research is centered in imaging, decision science, disease modeling, and cost-effectiveness analysis, with a primary focus in cancer outcomes. Dr. Pandharipande is also clinically active within the Abdominal Imaging Division at MGH, where she interprets imaging studies and trains residents and fellows.

She has a track record of extramural funding from the National Institutes of Health (NIH), the American Cancer Society, and the Medical Imaging and Technology Alliance.  She has served on grant review committees of the NIH, American Cancer Society, and RSNA/AUR, holds editorial board positions at RadiologyAJR, and the Journal of the American College of Radiology, and serves on multiple national committees related to health policy and imaging.  Among such roles, she serves as Chair of the Incidental Findings Committee at the American College of Radiology.  Her career goal is to ensure that every patient’s encounter with imaging adds value to their care.
