Additional Information

As a board certified Radiologist since 1996, and subspecialty board certified Pediatric Radiologist since 1998, I have over 25 years experience imaging children only. During those 25 years, I have met with attorneys, been deposed and testified in court regularly (> 100 cases) a part of my clinical work. My areas of sub-specialty expertise include pediatric neuroradiology, neonatal ultrasound, child abuse, 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 to determine timing of neonatal brain injury; (2) Distinguish child abuse from accidental injury, birth trauma and various disorders that mimic abuse; (3) Interpretation, determination of injury time frame and number of injurious events to the skeletal and brain in child abuse and other types of pediatric trauma; (4) Expert consultation on hip dysplasia; and (5) More. I have vast experience teaching and speaking publicly to audiences at hundreds of the local, national and international events. In deed, the joy I find in teaching extends to the court room where I am comfortable providing clear, easily understood testimony on complex medical topics. A few highlights regarding authorship, written teaching, editorial work and leadership experience are listed below.
