Primary Interests and Experience in Radiology

 

• Being an only active member of SIR in Istanbul, Turkey, focused on establishing an interventional radiology private practice on all aspects of interventional radiology, including but not limited to neurointerventional, peripheral vascular disease and interventional oncology. 

 

• Currently focused on public awareness and raising consciousness about interventional radiology and minimally invasive image guided procedures. Invited to several national TV shows and magazine and newspaper interviews. Personal fan page on social media is one of the largest interventional radiology platforms in the country.

 

• At Yeditepe University, after assuming the chair position, payed efforts on increasing the workload as well as quality of service through revising imaging protocols and establishing missing ones, encouraging lectures and meetings.

 

• Received clinical training in all aspects of vascular and non-vascular interventional radiology during VIR fellowship, 2010-2012, at University of Minnesota including some exposure to neurointerventional. Vascular and Interventional Radiology fellowship program involves rotation of fellow through three different hospitals with diverse patient groups to improve training. Vascular and Interventional Radiology Unit at University of Minnesota has been one of the pioneering units in USA. University of Minnesota is well known for transplant center and has been the first center to perform pancreas transplant in the world. Therefore, obtained skills on performing IR on transplant related issues.

 

• Received training in all aspects of clinical neuroradiology during fellowship at University of Minnesota, 2009-2010, including pediatric neuroimaging and head and neck imaging. Also participated in neurointerventional treatment cases.

 

 

• Research fellowship at Duke University Medical Center, 2008-2009 (supervisor:James Provenzale, M. D.; primary research topic: diffusion tensor imaging assessment of normal brain development, also participated in several projects including acute stroke imaging)

 

• Faculty at Gaziosmanpasa University Hospital in Turkey, 2005-2008, practiced neuroradiology, interventional neuroradiology and head and neck radiology, limited coverage of the Chest and Breast Imaging. Neuroradiology interests as a faculty radiologist had focused on diagnostic and therapeutic aspects of cerebrovascular disease, with special focus on acute stroke diagnosis and intervention.
