Dr. Costello is currently an Assistant Professor of Radiology at the University of Arizona. Since July 2012, he has occupied the positions of Body Fellowship Director and Education Curriculum Director of the Body Division. Dr. Costello has assumed an active role in several of the university multidisciplinary conferences including Hepatobiliary, Colorectal, Radiology/Pathology, and Abdominal Radiology Case Conference. Dr. Costello continues his research to investigate MR dynamic imaging of the lung. He began this work in July of 2012 when he was awarded the Siemens Healthcare RSNA Research Fellow Grant to study MR imaging of Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease. In this work he began efforts to quantitatively measure regional pulmonary biomechanics in an attempt to fully evaluate the pre- and post-transplant lung using non-invasive imaging. Dr. Costello also investigates MR biomarkers of tumor hypoxia to help optimize treatment strategies with the aid of new oxygen therapeutic drugs under development. Dr. Costello lectures nationally on Body MRI and is actively involved with educational programs through the American College of Radiology.
