Edward R. Oliver, MD, PhD
Attending Radiologist
Assistant Professor of Radiology

Dr. Oliver is an Attending Radiologist within the Divisions of Body Imaging and Fetal Imaging and Assistant Professor of Clinical Radiology at the University of Pennsylvania. He received his Medical Degree and PhD in Human Genetics from the University of Michigan. He completed his Diagnostic Radiology residency at the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania, where he was Chief Resident, as well as an Abdominal Imaging Fellowship. He has dual board certification in Diagnostic Radiology and Pediatric Radiology.

Dr. Oliver is a member of the Society of Radiologists in Ultrasound, American Institute of Ultrasound in Medicine, Radiological Society of North America, American Roentgen Ray Society, American College of Radiology, and the American College of Radiology Women’s Imaging Expert Panel.

Dr. Oliver is interested in identifying prenatal imaging features that allow for improved diagnosis of congenital anomalies as well as identifying imaging findings that help predict postnatal prognosis and outcomes.  Specific congenital conditions of interest include congenital lung lesions (e.g. congenital pulmonary airway malformations, bronchopulmonary sequestrations, and congenital lobar overinflation), congenital diaphragmatic hernia, and spina bifida.

Dr. Oliver’s primary research interests are in the prenatal diagnosis of congenital anomalies.
