From the outset of my career, I decided to pursue research projects that have a direct impact on the care I give to patients. My research has led to a whole body MRI protocol for the evaluation of soft tissue injuries in abused infants; optimized digital imaging protocols for skeletal surveys of infants in suspected maltreatment cases; and low radiation dose imaging protocols for quantitative CT bone densitometry (MDCT) for more accurate evaluation of bone density in children.

Dr. Perez-Rossello's Care Philosophy
As a pediatric radiologist specializing in musculoskeletal imaging, I perform and interpret radiographic studies in all key modalities. This work is primarily centered on the diagnosis and treatment complex sport injuries, skeletal tumors and dysplasias, maltreatment injuries, bone loss and associated fractures arising from rickets and other nutritional disorders. I also contribute to the development of MR imaging protocols for musculoskeletal imaging throughout the Children's enterprise. This work is ongoing as new imaging techniques evolve that feature increasingly rapid image processing, advanced methods of 2D and 3D image reconstruction, new contrast agents, and radiation dosimetry customized to the unique profiles of each patient. As a clinician known for expertise in the imaging characteristics of child abuse, I actively review cases with the child abuse team, working collaboratively in making diagnoses and in coordinating patient care with the entire treatment team. At a national level, I have served as Chair of the Child Abuse Committee of the Society for Pediatric Radiology, which shapes imaging policies and standards for the evaluation of these children in collaboration with the American Academy of Pediatrics, American College of Radiology and the Helfer Society.
