    Current Research and Scholarly InterestsThe management of individuals suffering from chronic pain is unfortunately limited by poor diagnostic tests and therapies. Our research group is interested in 'imaging pain' by using novel imaging techniques to study peripheral nociception and inflammation with the goal of accurately identifying the location of pain generators. We are developing new approaches with positron emission tomography (PET) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) (PET/MRI) and are currently in clinical trials.

  • Robert Downey Boutin

    Robert Downey Boutin

    Clinical Professor, Radiology

    BioDr. Boutin works clinically as a musculoskeletal radiologist interpreting a broad array of diagnostic imaging examinations, most frequently MRI, CT, sonography, and radiography.

    The clinical focus for Dr. Boutin is MRI of joints, bones, and muscles, as well as adding value to routine radiology exams by translating advancements from fields of artificial intelligence and imaging informatics.

    These advancements include enhancing routine imaging exams to help promote physical function, quality of life, and health span in our patients. Because the worldwide population of people > 60 years of age is projected to double by 2050, there is a crucial need for improvements in the accurate and efficient management of derangements associated with biological aging, including osteoporosis, sarcopenia, and visceral adiposity.

    Dr. Boutin is a leader in the field of musculoskeletal imaging. He has served as Chair of the Musculoskeletal Imaging Program Committee for the largest medical meeting in the world (RSNA) and is President-elect of the Society of Academic Bone Radiologists. Core professional values include an emphasis on outstanding quality, compassion, safety, and integrity.

    Dr. Boutin was introduced to Orthopaedics at an early age by his father and older brother -- both orthopaedists. After earning undergraduate and graduate degrees at Stanford University, Dr. Boutin completed advanced fellowship training in Musculoskeletal Imaging at the University of California, San Diego, and worked on the faculty at Harvard Medical School.

    Dr. Boutin is dedicated to excellence in musculoskeletal imaging. Dr. Boutin has written over 100 peer-reviewed articles and textbook chapters. He has also served as Guest Editor for 2 volumes of the 'Orthopaedic Clinics of North America', and volumes of ‘Seminars in Musculoskeletal Radiology’. Dr. Boutin also has served for many years as a Peer Reviewer for premier radiology journals.

    Dr. Boutin is a popular invited lecturer for Continuing Medical Education Courses, such as those at the annual meetings of the 'Radiological Society of North America', the 'International Skeletal Society', the 'Arthroscopy Association of North America', the 'American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons', and the 'International Society for Magnetic Resonance in Medicine'. He is also a repeat lecturer at the prestigious Orthopaedic Imaging course in Davos, Switzerland.
