Dr. Shuman is a UW professor of radiology and the director of clinical radiology operations at UW Medical Center. His professional interests center on body imaging with CT and MR, particularly cardiac imaging with non-invasive techniques.

He holds Level 3 Experience in Cardiac CT Certification as recognized by the Society of Cardiovascular Computed Tomography (SCCT) and holds Cardiac CT Board Certification from the Certification Board of Cardiovascular Computed Tomography (CBCCT).

Patient Care Philosophy

I am always mindful of placing the patient perspective first and foremost in everything I do. I use the most advanced imaging technology to help diagnose correctly and thus cure disease and alleviate suffering through rapid, accurate imaging.

Personal Interests

Boating (sail and power), hiking, fly-fishing internationally and traveling.

Clinical Interests

The use of better CT technology to lower patient radiation doses, to lower healthcare costs and to improve precision in diagnosis, particularly for the heart.

Teaching Interests

He teaches radiology fellows and residents and, occasionally, medical students about radiology technology and professionalism.

Scope of Care

Interpretation and execution of diagnostic imaging studies in CT and MR at UW Medical Center and UWMC-Roosevelt. He also administratively leads the clinical side of the radiology department.

Research Interests

Same as his clinical interests - the parallel empowers both.
