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.


Ted Treves received his MD from the University of Buenos Aires. He completed his residency in nuclear medicine at Royal Victoria Hospital, McGill University and a nuclear medicine fellowship at Yale University Medical Center.

Dr. Treves served as Chief of the Division of Nuclear Medicine at Children's Hospital Boston from 1970-2011.

He is also Director of the Harvard Medical School-Joint Program in Nuclear Medicine.
