Dr. Matilde Inglese is a Professor of Neurology, Radiology and Neuroscience at Mount Sinai School of Medicine. She received her medical degree magna cum laude from the University of Genoa, Italy and earned a PhD degree from the same university after her formal training in neurology. Dr. Inglese completed her post-doctoral training in Neuroimaging at San Raffaele Hospital, Milan, Italy. Then, supported by the National Multiple Sclerosis Society, Dr. Inglese completed a fellowship in neuroimaging at New York University.

Her current research, supported by the National Institute of Health, focuses on the development and application of new structural and functional magnetic resonance imaging techniques at high and ultra-high field strength, to study multiple sclerosis and other neurological diseases. This work aims to identify the mechanisms of degeneration which lead to the accumulation of irreversible clinical disability, and to provide surrogate markers to monitor the efficacy of neuroprotective treatments in vivo.

Dr. Inglese serves as a member of the National Institute of Health study sections, and she is a member of the American Academy of Neurology and the International Society of Magnetic Resonance in Medicine. Dr. Inglese is author and co-author of several original contributions published in the neurological and radiological scientific literature and several book chapters on clinical and basic research aspects of multiple sclerosis.

Physicians who provide services at hospitals and facilities in the Mount Sinai Health System might not participate in the same health plans as those Mount Sinai hospitals and facilities (even if the physicians are employed or contracted by those hospitals or facilities).

Information regarding insurance participation and billing by this physician may be found on this page, and can also be obtained by contacting this provider directly. Because physicians insurance participation can change, the insurance information on this page may not always be up-to-date.
