PHILADELPHIA (August 12, 2010) – Marion Brody, MD - Staff Radiologist, Radiology, has joined Fox Chase Cancer Center’s Department of Diagnostic Imaging as a staff radiologist. Her clinical expertise is in body imaging with a special interest in breast imaging.
Brody entered the field of radiology from a background in internal medicine.

I am comfortable working closely with the clinical teams to develop the best possible care plan for each patient.”
Brody comes to Fox Chase from the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania, where she recently served as chief fellow of abdominal imaging. She earned her M.D. from Jefferson Medical College and completed residencies in diagnostic radiology at Albert Einstein Medical Center and internal medicine at Thomas Jefferson University Hospital.
