Radiologist Marion Brody, MD, Joins Fox Chase's Department of Diagnostic Imaging

PHILADELPHIA (August 12, 2010) – Marion Brody, MD - Associate Professor, Diagnostic Imaging, has joined Fox Chase Cancer Center’s Department of Diagnostic Imaging as a staff radiologist.  Her clinical expertise is in body imaging with a special interest in breast imaging.  

Brody entered the field of radiology from a background in internal medicine.

“I practiced and taught internal medicine for 11 years prior to becoming a radiologist,” she says.  “While I now subspecialize in reading imaging studies, I understand the personal challenges of each patient, and the diagnostic needs of their treating physicians.  I am comfortable working closely with the clinical teams to develop the best possible care plan for each patient.”

Brody comes to Fox Chase from the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania, where she recently served as chief fellow of abdominal imaging.  She earned her M.D. from Jefferson Medical College and completed residencies in diagnostic radiology at Albert Einstein Medical Center and internal medicine at Thomas Jefferson University Hospital.

Brody maintains membership in several professional associations, including the American College of Physicians, the American Association for Women Radiologists, and the American College of Radiology.
