Main Campus


Frederick R. Long, MD, is Section Chief, Body MRI and CT in the Radiology Department at Nationwide Children’s Hospital and Director of Nationwide Children’s Hospital Radiology Research Program. He is a Clinical Professor of Pediatrics and Radiology at The Ohio State University College of Medicine and a Clinical Assistant Professor at the Medical University of Ohio. He is a member of the Children’s Radiological Institute, Inc., a principle investigator in the Center for Perinatal Research and a member of the biomedical engineering graduate faculty at The Ohio State University. His clinical specialization is body imaging with a focus on cardiopulmonary disease and tumors in children. His clinical research interests include high resolution, quantitative and functional imaging of the infant heart and lung as well as the development of advanced CT and MRI techniques for body imaging. Funded research involves the development and application of controlled ventilation CT in children with cystic fibrosis. He is also a funded research consultant working on high resolution infant lung imaging.
