Biography

I interpret x ray films and have over 40 years’ experience. My core competence, is in an area where expertise is rarely available elsewhere in our city or country. It in the interpretation of (x rays) related skeletal dysplasias, metabolic bone disease, endocrine diseases, HSGs, Bariums, children’s’ chest x-rays and xrays  of bone tumors.

I have lectured extensively on this specialty all over the country and my work has been recognized by the Radiological Society of North America – when in 1995, I was invited to Chicago as the First International Visiting Scholar to their Annual meeting.

I am passionate about teaching have trained hundreds of radiologists who are now spread all over the world. I practice and preach patient-centered radiology.

My Mantra

I believe that radiology is about patient care and not just interpretation of images.
