Faculty

As a Neuroradiology Fellow you will work with, and be mentored by, neuroradiologists who have both a passion and enthusiasm for teaching. Many of the faculty members are nationally and internationally known for their contributions to the field in research, technique development and education. All of our faculty are fellowship trained in Neuroradiology and have earned certifications of added qualification (CAQ) in Neuroradiology from the American Board of Radiology.

Fellows gain significant exposure to all members of the faculty. In addition, they have the opportunity to become involved in a variety of research projects performed by many of the faculty, although fellow-initiated projects are particularly desired and appreciated.

Our Neuroradiologists

Burton Drayer, MD, is the Dr. Charles M. and Marilyn Newman Professor and Chair of the Department of Radiology.  He has served as Presidents of both the Radiologic Society of North America (RSNA) and American Society of Neuroradiology (ASNR), and is a leader in the field of Neuroradiology.  Dr. Drayer frequently reviews studies with fellows and provides didactics throughout the year.

Amish Doshi, MD, is Assistant Professor of Radiology and Neurosurgery.  He is the Chief of Neuroradiology and Director of the Neuroradiology Fellowship.  He is dual-trained in Diagnostic and Interventional Neuroradiology.  Dr. Doshi performs a number of imaging-guided procedures, including spine biopsies, kyphoplasty, pain injections as well as ultrasound guided thyroid and head and neck biopsies.  Fellows gain exposure to a large variety of procedures.  Dr. Doshi meets with the fellows regularly to help fellows achieve their fellowship and job placement goals. 

Thomas Naidich, MD, is Professor of Radiology and Neurosurgery, Irving and Dorothy Regenstreif Research Professor of Neuroscience (Neuroimaging).  He is internationally renowned for his contributions to the field of radiology.  Dr. Naidich reads out cases with fellows daily and gives numerous presentations throughout the year.  He ensures that fellows receive an excellent foundation in Neuroranatomy.

Peter Som, MD, is Professor of Radiology, Otolaryngology and Radiation Oncology, and Chief of Head & Neck Radiology.  He is internationally renowned and well known for his contributions head and neck radiology.  Dr. Som is the author of one of the most highly regarded textbooks on imaging of the head and neck.  Fellows read out daily with Dr. Som on the head and neck rotation.

Bradley Delman, MD, is Associate Professor and Vice-Chairman overseeing Quality and Performance.  He is a recognized expert in quality initiatives, including measures he has introduced to the Neuroradiology Section.  Fellows also have an opportunity to review Functional MR and advanced CSF leak studies with Dr. Delman. In addition to reading out with residents and fellow, he mentors and supervises quality initiatives undertaken by trainees as well.

Puneet Pawha, MD, is Assistant Professor of Radiology and heads the Clinical Competency Committee for the Neuroradiology Fellowship.  He is very involved with fellow education and provides daily teaching during neuroimaging rotations and a number of didactic conferences.  Dr. Pawha also performs a variety of imaging guided head and neck biopsies and reads out with fellows on head and neck imaging.  Fellows have an opportunity to gain exposure to 4D-CT parathyroid imaging, an area of Dr. Pawha’s expertise.

Dr. Kambiz Nael is Assistant Professor of Radiology.  He reads out neuroimaging cases with the fellows regularly, performs a number of neuroradiologic procedures, and gives didactic fellow conferences.  Dr. Nael is very involved with training fellows in the processing and interpretation of advanced MR techniques, with a particular interest in perfusion imaging and tumor evaluation.  He performs research in stroke and multiparametric imaging.  He presents his research at many national conferences, which often involves our fellowship trainees.

Aryeh Stollman, MD, is Assistant Clinical Professor of Radiology.  Dr. Stollman has significant interaction with the fellows on the weekend shift.  He provides both Neuroradiology and Body Imaging coverage on the weekends.
