Additional Information

Radiology is too large of a field to be an expert in its entirety. Based in Pittsburgh, PA, I am a board-certified Diagnostic-Radiologist with fellowship training in both Abdominal Imaging and Emergency Radiology, including emergent imaging of the chest. As the Associate Chief of the Emergency and Tele-radiology Division at UPMC, I help oversee one of the largest academic Emergency Radiology divisions in the country which services 15 UPMC-affiliated hospital ER’s across Western Pennsylvania, including 2 level-one, 2 level-two and 6 certified stroke centers. With an academic appointment in the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine, I am extremely active in education, serving as a faculty mentor for radiology residents and providing multi-disciplinary lectures to both radiology and emergency medicine residents, as well as medical students and physician assistant students. In June 2018, I won the UPMC Department of Radiology Excellence in Teaching Award, voted on by the residents. My educational exhibits have been presented at conferences around the country, including recent exhibits at the American Society of Emergency Radiology in 2018 and at the Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) National Meetings in 2017 and 2018, including a cum laude award for an exhibit on Post-thyroidectomy imaging surveillance. Academic interests include “incidentaloma’s” or incidental findings found while imaging for another purpose, as well as traumatic injury in the abdomen and pelvis.
