Neuroradiology fellows work with, and are mentored by, neuroradiologists who have passion and enthusiasm for teaching. Many of our 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 train with all members of the faculty and participate in a variety of faculty research. In addition, faculty are always willing to provide guidance on fellow-initiated projects.

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.

Thomas Naidich, MD, is Professor of Radiology and Neurosurgery, Irving and Dorothy Regenstreif Research Professor of Neuroscience (Neuroimaging), and Director of Neuroradiology.  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 and 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.

Lawrence Tanenbaum, MD, is Associate Professor and Director of MR and CT. He is internationally known for his contributions to advanced imaging.  Dr. Tanenbaum teaches fellows techniques in post-processing and imaging interpretation of advanced imaging cases.  He gives fellows numerous lectures throughout the year on this subject, and fellows see many of these programs before he presents them nationally at the largest conferences.

Amish Doshi, MD, is Assistant Professor and Director of the Neuroradiology Fellowship.  He is dually 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.

Michael Sacher, MD, is Associate Professor of Radiology and one of the senior members of the Neuroradiology section.  He has performed a broad variety of interventional procedures during his tenure at The Mount Sinai Hospital.  He reads daily with fellows and provides guidance to fellows performing procedures, in particular lumbar punctures and myelograms.

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

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.  

Our Neurointerventionalists

Amish Doshi, MD, often performs Interventional Neuroradiology procedures.  Fellows receive hand-on training with Dr. Doshi in the angiography and CT suites as well as didactic education on Interventional Neuroradiology throughout the year.
