UC Neuroradiologists Lead National Societies

Cincinnati--"Concurrent presidencies of the national neuroradiology societies by members of a single department has not previously occurred, placing Cincinnati at the center of the national neuroradiologic scene," said Thomas Tomsick, MD, professor and director of neuroradiology at the University of Cincinnati (UC) College of Medicine and The University Hospital.

Tomsick is president of the American Society of Interventional and Therapeutic Neuroradiology (ASITN) and a member of The Neuroscience Institute of the Health Alliance. Tomsick has also been elected to the executive committee of the Stroke Council of the American Heart Association.

William Ball, MD, professor of pediatrics and radiology at the UC College of Medicine, and director of neuroradiology at the Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center is president of the American Society of Neuroradiology. In addition, the chairman of the radiology department in the UC College of Medicine and at The University Hospital, Robert Lukin, MD, a neuroradiologist, is the director of the Neuroradiology Section of the American Board of Radiology Examination, the certifying board in Radiology.

Neuroradiologists are board certified in image interpretation and performance of procedures related to the brain, spine, and head and neck, including the blood vessels leading to the brain. Interventional neuroradiologists have special training and experience in treating brain blood vessel abnormalities with drugs, balloons, metal coils, liquid glues, and particles. The ASITN is composed of 250 members nationally who devote 50 percent of their time to such procedures.
