RadTranslate™ is a diversityxMESH product. DiversityxMESH is a collaboration between the MESH Incubator™ at Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH) and the MGH Department of Radiology Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion committee. DiversityxMESH’s aim is to develop practical solutions to reduce health disparities and provide more equitable care to patients. By bringing together innovators, the entire spectrum of healthcare workers and, most importantly, patients, we empower our communities to identify problems, form creative solutions, and implement targeted products.

MGH Radiology Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion Committee
The MGH Radiology Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion Committee was started in 2013 by the department chairperson James Brink, MD. A strong advocate for diversity, Dr. Brink organized the MGH Radiology DE&I Committee as four separate taskforces, each with a separate mission:
- Research—Cultivate diverse research investigator and subject participant populations.
- Workforce—Build, sustain, and empower a diverse workforce that extends through all levels of the department.
- Patient Experience—Grow, support, and work with the diverse communities & patient populations we serve to ensure all patients receive the highest quality of care.
- Education—Support the educational needs of our diverse communities, inside the department and out, through a lens of inclusion.
RadTranslate could not have been developed without the support of our diverse community of clinical and nonclinical employees who embody our belief that our diversity makes us stronger. We would like to thank the following organizations:
