Description of Clinical Expertise
As an academic neuroradiologist, my clinical skills are applied primarily to noninvasive imaging studies of brain, head and neck, and spine. While I do perform interventional studies such as conventional angiography, myelography/cisternography, and image-guided lumbar or cervical punctures, my participation is almost always in the role of diagnostician. Areas of particular clinical interest parallel research interests; specifically, I am interested in neuroimaging of cerebrovascular disease and CNS neoplasia. In this light, I have expertise in many standard neuroimaging modalities (e.g., CT and MRI) as well as advanced imaging techniques, including noninvasive angiography, perfusion imaging, diffusion imaging, fMRI, and spectroscopy.
