Clinical Interests

Clinical duties:

  • Level I trauma center: Attending Radiologist at a high-volume level I trauma center interpreting all studies performed in the Trauma/Emergency Department, except for brain imaging. I am proficient with CT protocoling of emergent cases including CT angiograms and poly trauma assessment. I supervise junior and senior residents. I am competent at procedures including retrograde urethrograms and esophagrams. I lead the radiology team in clinical group discussions with the trauma and emergency medicine teams for real time patient care.
  • Level III Trauma center: Staffing a high-volume multimodality emergency radiology department including ultrasound and body imaging.
  • Musculoskeletal: Staffing high volume orthopedic clinics for trauma, postoperative imaging, sports imaging, joint replacements, arthritis, and general musculoskeletal imaging. Proficient in Radiography, Computer tomography, and MRI as well as arthrograms and ultrasound guided MSK procedures. This includes professional athletes on NFL and NBA teams.
