Giulio Zuccoli, MD Giulio Zuccoli, MD, is the Chief of the Division of Neuroradiology in the Department of Radiology at Children's Hospital of Philadelphia. Locations: Main Campus Appointments and Referrals: 1-800-TRY-CHOP (1-800-879-2467) Background Dr. Giulio Zuccoli is the Chief of the Division of Neuroradiology in the Department of Radiology. Dr. Zuccoli comes from the Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh where he was the Chief of the Section of Neuroradiology since 2010 and Professor of Radiology at the School of Medicine of the University of Pittsburgh. Dr. Zuccoli completed his medical training in 1995 from the Universities of Parma and Bologna, Italy. He completed his residency in radiology at the University of Parma. This encompassed a one-year fellowship in neuroradiology and pediatric neuroradiology through the European Erasmus Post-Graduate Program at the University of Barcelona in Spain. For the next 10 years, he worked at a tertiary academic hospital, the “Istituto di Ricovero a Carattere Scientifico,” as a neuroradiologist and pediatric neuroradiologist until he joined the Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh in 2009. In addition to his outstanding clinical productivity and departmental leadership accomplishments, Dr. Zuccoli is an internationally recognized researcher. He has published over 145 papers and book chapters. He lectures in many national and international settings in pediatric neuroradiology.

Patients that are treated in outpatient or hospital environments may receive different surveys, and the volume of responses will vary by question. Responses are measured on a scale of 1 to 5 with 5 being the best score. The comments are submitted by patients and families and reflect their views and opinions. The comments are not endorsed by and do not reflect the views of Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia.
