My Biography & Research

Biography

Carl Merrow spent two years in fellowship at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center. While the first fellowship year was focused on general pediatric radiology, the second year was split between pediatric musculoskeletal MRI and pediatric neuroimaging. After spending the next two years in a pediatric radiology private practice, Dr. Merrow returned to Cincinnati Children's where he fostered new interests in fetal imaging, vascular anomalies and fellow education. Since his return in 2010, Dr. Merrow has received the Corning Benton Outstanding Educator Award from four graduating classes of pediatric radiology fellows. He was also selected for the first annual Faculty Educational Achievement Award from amongst all junior faculty of Cincinnati Children's in 2011.

In addition to publishing many scientific and educational papers and book chapters, he has lectured at numerous national meetings and helped develop educational content for many online resources. In 2016, he served as editor of the radiology reference textbook Diagnostic Imaging, Pediatrics, 3rd edition, the online content of which is widely used in radiology training programs across the country. In 2017, he co-edited a radiology textbook specifically for pediatricians (Imaging in Pediatrics). As the Corning Benton Chair for Radiology Education, Dr. Merrow currently oversees the vast teaching endeavors for which the Cincinnati Children's Department of Radiology has long been recognized.
