My Biography & Research


As a pediatric neuroradiologist, I interpret images of a child’s brain and head to help make a diagnosis.

My area of interest centers on child abuse and how neuroimaging of trauma can improve care for abusive head injuries. I hope to increase awareness of how imaging findings in abusive head trauma can lead to better treatments.

In addition to studying and interpreting brain and head images for patients, I also research ways to reduce radiation doses in computerized tomography (CT) imaging.

I’ve been a member of the radiology faculty and the Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center child abuse team since 1998. I serve on several departmental committees. I’m involved with medical student education and improving interpersonal communications within our department.
