Paul Kleinman


I was born in raised in a small town in upstate New York and have always believed that each of us has the power and a responsibility to try and make a difference in our communities. Children may not be able, or are too afraid to tell us what is wrong with them.  Modern imaging helps us figure this out and provides us with a window into the causes of both natural diseases and injury patterns encountered in the pediatric population.

Professional History

Dr. Kleinman is the director of Musculoskeletal Imaging in the Department of Radiology at Boston Children’s Hospital and is Professor of Radiology at Harvard Medical School. He is board certified in Pediatric Radiology and Pediatrics. He has been actively involved in the field pediatric musculoskeletal imaging for over 30 years. He heads a team of more than 6 pediatric radiologists focusing on pediatric musculoskeletal imaging.  He was given the Jack O. Haller Award for Excellence in Teaching from the Society for Pediatric Radiology in 2011 and is an honorary member of the European Society for Paediatric Radiology. He has a special interest in the imaging of child abuse. Most of his approximately 150 publications deal with the imaging of child abuse and its mimics. He received the Ray E. Helfer Society Award for Distinguished Contributions in the Field of Child Abuse and Neglect in 2005 He has co-authored all the American College of Radiology Practice Guidelines for Skeletal Surveys and all the statements on The Diagnostic Imaging of Child Abuse of the American Academy of Pediatrics. The third edition of his comprehensive text, Diagnostic Imaging of Child Abuse, was published in September of 2015.
