Luigi Grazioli was born in 1958 and received his MD degree with full honours at the University of Brescia (Italy) in 1985. He was then a resident at The Department of Radiology at The University of Brescia and became a radiologist in 1990. Since his residence experience, one of his main fields of interest has been the clinical application of MRI and CT in gastrointestinal and urogenital diseases. Growing MRI and CT experience led to specialization in liver and pancreatic diseases in terms of diagnosis and interventional radiology.
From 1998 to 2000, Dott.Grazioli was a visiting fellow at the Department of Radiology, Abdominal Imaging Section, University of Pittsburgh, PA (USA) to develop his knowledge in the hepatobiliary imaging field. He is currently chief of the First Department of Radiology at Spedali Civili di Brescia - University of Brescia
Dott. Grazioli is a member of SIRM (the Italian Society of Radiology), the European Society of Radiology (ESR), the European Society of Gastrointestinal and Abdominal Radiology (ESGAR), the International Cancer Imaging Society (ICIS) and the Radiologic Society of North America (RSNA). Since 1994 he has collaborated in many research projects as either principal investigator or co-investigator (including more than 50 study trials, of which five are in progress). Many of these studies concern the clinical application of different contrast agents in liver MRI. He has authored many publications in both Italian (107) and International journals (63) abstracts excluded and is co-editor of the books “MRI of the Liver” (Springer Editor, Milan 2002), “MRI of the Liver”, Second Edition (Springer Editor, Milan 2006), and ”Imaging of urogenital diseases” (Springer Editor, Milan 2009).
