Overview

Biography

Dr. Laura Romo is a Neuroradiologist with an interest in Head and Neck Imaging in the Department of Radiology at Massachusetts Eye and Ear/Harvard Medical School. After completing her Diagnostic Radiology residency and medical school training at Boston University School of Medicine, Dr. Romo received subspecialty training in Neuroradiology at Brigham and Women’s Hospital, Boston Children’s Hospital, and The Beth Israel Hospital. 

Dr. Romo’s primary research interest pertains to congenital temporal bone anomalies. She has done research on the anomalous course of the facial nerve within the temporal bone in patients with cochlear dysplasias. Dr. Romo has worked with her colleagues at Mass. Eye and Ear on how to further define cochlear anomalies with imaging, while being involved with establishing the imaging features of cervical lymphadenopathy in patients with squamous cell carcinomas of the head and neck, defining the imaging features of patients with vocal cord paralysis, and defining the imaging features of direct extralaryngeal spread of laryngeal squamous cell carcinoma.
