His main areas of clinical and research work include magnetic resonance imaging, abdominal x-ray, cardiac imaging, oncological imaging, and interventional radiology in oncology. In recent years, Professor Francesco De Cobelli has taken up the study of the impact of diagnostic imaging in oncology (focusing on magnetic resonance imaging of the prostate and imaging of hepatobiliopancreatic tumors and tumors of the stomach and esophagus, as well as colon and rectum) and interventional radiology in the treatment of liver and kidneys. Recently, he has also shown interest in radiomics as applied to solid tumors.
He is currently the principal investigator and second principal investigator in numerous multicenter trials that focus primarily on interventional radiology and diagnostic imaging. Being the author of 212 scientific articles published in national and international journals, books on magnetic resonance imaging and more than 30 chapters in other books, Professor Francesco De Cobelli is among the people with high H index and citations (Scopus source: 38 and 5668; Google Scholar source: 45 and 7606).
