  • My 50% of clinical time is split between interventional (3/5) and diagnostic (2/5)neuroradiology. Regarding interventional neuroradiology (INR), I spend one half day per week in clinic seeing new patients or following up existing patients. The remainder of my INR time is spent in the interventional laboratory performing cerebral angiograms, myelograms, endovascular interventions (aneurysm or AVM embolization, carotid stenting, etc.) or spine interventions (vertebroplasty, kyphoplasty, discograms, facet blocks, nerve root blocks, epidural injections, bone or disc biopsies). I average one day per week of diagnostic neuroradiology, in which I interpret CTs and MRIs. ( 7/2004 - 6/2006 )
  • Diagnostic Neuroradiology - 1-3 days per week of diagnostic radiology, in which I interpret CT's and MRI's of the brain, head and neck, or spine. ( 7/2006 - Present )
  • Interventional Neuroradiology - One half day per week in clinic seeing new patients or following up existing patients. 2-3 days/week interventional laboratory performing cerebral angiograms, myelograms, endovascular interventions (aneurysm or AVM embolization, mechanical thrombectomy for stroke, carotid stenting, etc.) or spine interventions (vertebroplasty, kyphoplasty, discograms, facet blocks, nerve root blocks, epidural injections, bone or disc biopsies). Call for endovascular procedures varies from q2 to q4, currently q3. Call for spine procedures is q2. ( 7/2006 - Present )
