Gregory Chang, M.D. is an Assistant Professor of Radiology and the Section Chief of Musculoskeletal Imaging at NYU Langone Medical Center. After obtaining his undergraduate (1997) and medical degrees (2003) at Harvard University, he completed his residency in diagnostic radiology at NYU (2009) and a fellowship in musculoskeletal imaging at Penn (2010). He joined the staff at NYU in 2010 after his fellowship.
Dr. Chang’s clinical interests include imaging of sports injuries, cartilage, and osteoporosis. His research focuses on the development, translation, and application of novel MRI methods to quantify the microstructure and function of musculoskeletal tissues, specifically in the setting of osteoarthritis and osteoporosis. As a principal investigator, Dr. Chang has received funding from the Radiological Society of North America (RR0806) and the National Institutes of Arthritis and Musculoskeletal and Skin Diseases (K23AR059748). Dr. Chang was an NCAA First-Team All-American (1996) and Olympian (2004) in the sport of fencing and was recently inducted into the Harvard University Varsity Sports of Fame (2011).
