Additional Information

Radiology is too large of a field to be an expert in its entirety. 100% of my clinical practice is dedicated to ER imaging of the chest, abdomen, and pelvis. This has allowed me to become a true expert, rather than a jack of all trades. Board-certified in Radiology, I also have fellowship training in both Body Imaging and Emergency Radiology. My particular interest is “incidentalomas” or incidental findings found while imaging for another purpose, such as lung nodules and colon masses. Examples of cases I work on include missed pulmonary embolism, lung cancer, appendicitis, cholecystitis, diverticulitis, abdominal malignancy such as colon cancer that was missed, bowel obstructions... more or less, anything in the chest, abdomen, or pelvis is well within my "sandbox". I work in one of the largest academic Emergency Radiology divisions in the US, servicing 15 UPMC-affiliated hospital ER’s across Western Pennsylvania, including 2 level-one, 2 level-two and 6 certified stroke centers and recently served as Associate Chief of my Emergency and Tele-radiology Division. With an academic appointment in the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine, I am responsible for teaching the radiologists of tomorrow. Side-by-side, I teach trainees the subtleties of body imaging. In each of the past five years ('18-'22), I was awarded a UPMC Department of Radiology Excellence in Teaching Award, voted on by the residents. Please visit my website for more information:
