Amol S. Pednekar, PhD



Dr. Pednekar received his Baccalaureate in Electrical Engineering in at University of Mumbai in India. He then completed a PhD in Computer Science in 2003 at University of Houston, Texas. He is certified by the American Board of Medical Physics since September 2016 in in MRI Physics. After completing his PhD, Dr. Pednekar joined St. Luke’s Episcopal Hospital, in Houston, Texas, as a Radiology Research Specialist, prior to becoming MRI Clinical Scientist for Philips Healthcare in 2005. He was Senior Imaging Scientist at Texas Children's hospital since 2017 prior to joining Department of Radiology at Cincinnati Children's Hospital as Assistant Professor. Dr. Pednekar is a skilled in cardiovascular MRI, passionately translating technical innovation into clinical practice.

He is an imaging scientist and algorithm developer with decade plus of experience in the field of diagnostic magnetic resonance imaging, guiding technical innovation towards clinical needs and translating them into clinical practice.
