I enjoy visual puzzles, thinking about the brain, and helping patients. So pediatric neuroradiology is the perfect field for me because I get to immerse myself in all three activities on a daily basis. It is a particular privilege to work here at Boston Children’s Hospital since we have the technology, resources, and collective clinical expertise to ensure that our patients obtain the highest quality care possible. Our hospital is also fortunate to see rare conditions in sufficient frequency that we can contribute to improved diagnosis, therapy, and overall understanding of a wide array of childhood diseases affecting the brain, spine, and head/neck.
