Patient Care Philosophy


I have the privilege of being the Chair of the UW Department of Radiology.  In order to meet the needs of our patients,
we are committed to being the premier academic radiology program in the
nation. Our practice is at the highest levels of measurable success
clinically, academically, and in our chosen areas of research. Through our
involvement at the University of Washington and in WWAMI, we contribute to
innovations in clinical practice throughout the region. A key element in our
success is the creation and maintenance of a workplace environment that is
stimulating, challenging, collegial, and enjoyable for all our physicians and
departmental staff.

As a diagnostic neuroradiologist  I am committed to using imaging to 
efficiently and non-invasively obtain the correct diagnosis and to assess effectiveness of treatment.
As an interventional neuroradiologist, I am committed to minimizing the damage caused by stroke and relentlessly pursue the best outcome for the patient.

Research Interests

Using imaging to identify risk predictors of stroke and dementia.
Developing and validating diagnostic tools for the early diagnosis of acute stroke.
Applying interventions to minimize injury secondary to stroke.
Insuring that UW Medicine maintains a clinical environment where the patient is assured of the best possible diagnosis and treatment every time.
