Sonia Gupta, MD

Director of Ultrasound at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center

I am a fellowship trained Abdominal Imager. I have a leadership role as the Director of Ultrasound at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center and I am an Instructor of Radiology at Harvard Medical School. I am passionate about mentorship, sponsorship and gender parity in radiology. I have publications related to gender disparities in the radiology workforce. I am also interested in how AI will impact the daily life of radiologists and in this regard, I consult for both IBM Watson Health and Google. Clinically my work includes second and third-trimester obstetric ultrasound, abdominal MRI, and image-guided procedures. I have held numerous leadership roles at the state and national level with the American College of Radiology. I am a passionate resident advocate and I am excited about the future of radiology.
