Ted Treves' research is directed along two paths: integrating systems in medical imaging and optimizing the use of nuclear medicine in pediatrics.
In the first, he has evaluated new technologies for implementation. One recent implementation, the Picture Archiving and Communication System, has largely reduced the use of film in diagnostic imaging and allowed image sharing throughout the Children's Hospital enterprise.
In the second, he has conducted numerous evaluations of existing and emerging technologies and participated in multi-center trials of nuclear medicine imaging in children.
