    Vice-Chair of Radiology Quality, Patient Safety, and Process Improvement
    Division Chief Musculoskeletal Imaging

    In 2010, Dr. Baccei joined the Radiology Department at UMass Memorial Medical Center in Worcester, MA as an assistant professor, musculoskeletal imaging and intervention. Clinically, he interprets a wide range of imaging modalities for the diagnosis and treatment of bone and soft tissue related pathology. His teaching responsibilities and mentoring include medical students, radiology residents, and fellows. Dr. Baccei was appointed Section Chief of Musculoskeletal Imaging and Intervention in 2017.

    Dr. Baccei is also involved with a variety of administrative and quality related activities both within the radiology department and throughout the medical system. He was appointed Vice-Chair of Radiology Quality, Patient Safety, and Process Improvement in 2015 and also serves as Co-Chair of the Group Practice Quality Committee. Also in 2015, Dr. Baccei was elected to a 4 year term as President (-elect) by the UMass Memorial Medical Staff. Research interests for Dr. Baccei include systems based practice, quality improvement work, and musculoskeletal imaging optimization.

    PMC Citations indicate the number of times the publication was cited by articles in PubMed Central, and the Altmetric score represents citations in news articles and social media. (Note that publications are often cited in additional ways that are not shown here.) Fields are based on how the National Library of Medicine (NLM) classifies the publication's journal and might not represent the specific topic of the publication. Translation tags are based on the publication type and the MeSH terms NLM assigns to the publication. Some publications (especially newer ones and publications not in PubMed) might not yet be assigned Field or Translation tags.) Click a Field or Translation tag to filter the publications.
