My Biography & Research

Biography

I am a pediatric radiologist with a special interest in magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), computerized tomography scan (CT) and nuclear medicine. I take my time with each patient and approach every radiographic study as if it were of my own child.

Pediatric radiology imaging is fascinating to me. I was inspired to pursue my career by Dr. Godfrey Gaisie — a pediatric radiologist at Akron Children’s Hospital, where I did my pediatric radiology rotations as a resident.

I have authored or coauthored greater than 30 peer-reviewed radiology papers and over 100 book chapters in seven radiology textbooks. Also, I was the editor of EXPERTddx: Pediatrics 2009, which is published by Amirsys.

I’ve received the Outstanding Clinician Award in 2005-06, 2007-08 and 2009-10 for the pediatric radiology department at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center.

In my research, I am seeking a better understanding of pediatric disease processes.

I spend my free time with my wife and three children. I also enjoy traveling and sightseeing with my family. We take family trips to the beach each year to see our parents, siblings, nieces and nephews.
