Onofrio Catalano

Onofrio Antonio Catalano, MD, PhD, is Associated Professor of Radiology at Harvard Medical School. Dr. Catalano has been working on PET/MR since its first clinical introduction in 2012, at first building the PET/MR program in Naples, Italy, and then at the MGH/Harvard, in Boston, as medical director. He has read thousands of PET/MR scans and is one of the world most prolific researchers on the field of PET/MR. Among several achievements, Dr. Catalano has been the first to demonstrate the utility of PET/MR in the clinical oncologic settings, and the first to show the capabilities of PET/MR in discriminating fibrotic from inflammatory stenoses in Crohn disease patients.
