The Gordon Center for Medical Imaging is a multidisciplinary research center at Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH) and Harvard Medical School that develops biomedical imaging technologies.

The Center's central activities include: research, training and education in medical imaging, and translation of basic research into clinical applications.[1]

The MGH Gordon Center also operates the PET Core , an MGH research service facility that synthesizes radiotracers and provides positron emission tomography (PET) imaging services for investigators.[2]

Created in 2015 with an endowment from the Bernard and Sophia Gordon Foundation,[3] the Gordon Center is a direct continuation of MGH’s Division of Radiological Sciences where the first positron-imaging device was invented.[4]

Dr. Georges El Fakhri is the founding director of the Gordon Center. The Center is located in two campuses in Boston and Charlestown Navy Yard, MA.[5]
