Additional Information

As a board certified Radiologist since 1996, and subspecialty board certified Pediatric Radiologist since 1998, I have over 27 years experience imaging children only. During those 27 years, I have met with attorneys, been deposed and testified in court regularly as part of my clinical work. My areas of sub-specialty expertise include pediatric brain imaging, neonatal ultrasound, hypoxic brain injury, fetal imaging, hip dysplasia, general pediatric radiology and residency training. Besides my clinical experience, I am an experienced educator, public speaker, accomplished academician and leader. My background allows me to provide expert review and interpretation of any pediatric radiology imaging study. A few examples of how I may provide expert consultation include: (1) Interpretation of US, CT and MRI in neonatal brain injury; (2) Distinguish types of trauma; (3) Interpret all types of pediatric radiology exams in various disorders, (4) discuss role of residents and trainees in health care. I have vast experience teaching and speaking publicly to audiences at hundreds of the local, national and international events. I find joy in teaching in the class room and the court room where I am comfortable providing clear, easily understood testimony on complex medical topics.
