Priti Balchandani, PhD, is an Associate Professor of Radiology and Director of the High Field MRI Program at the Translational and Molecular Imaging Institute at Mount Sinai School of Medicine.  Her research is focused on radio frequency (RF) pulse and pulse sequence design for ultrahigh field MRI scanners and translation of these techniques to visualize the central nervous system in unprecedented detail. Her work on overcoming some of the main limitations of operating at high magnetic fields has resulted in several innovative tools with wide applicability for human brain imaging and spectroscopy. These techniques are ultimately applied to improve diagnosis, treatment and monitoring of neurological diseases and disorders, such as epilepsy, brain tumors and psychiatric disorders. Dr. Balchandani received her BASc in computer engineering at the University of Waterloo in Canada and her PhD in electrical engineering at Stanford University.

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. Please contact this physician directly to obtain the most up-to-date insurance information.

Insurance and health plan networks that the various Mount Sinai Health System hospitals and facilities participate in can be found on the Mount Sinai Health System website.
