Biography

Neuroradiology.
Stroke Imaging.
Musculoskeletal Radiology.

Dr Eoin Kavanagh is a consultant radiologist and senior lecturer in radiology at the Mater Misericordiae University Hospital and also a Consultant Radiologist at Cappagh National Orthopaedic Hospital. He started his radiology career at the Mater Misericordiae University Hospital where he completed a 4 year training program. He then went on to complete a fellowship in Neuroradiology at Vancouver General Hospital. Following this, he moved to Philadelphia to the Thomas Jefferson University Hospital, where he completed a fellowship in Musculoskeletal Radiology. Before returning to the Mater in 2007, Dr. Kavanagh was appointed as Clinical Assistant Professor of Radiology at University of Pittsburgh Medical Centre (UPMC) in the Division of Musculoskeletal Radiology, with a full university faculty appointment at the University of Pittsburgh. He has particular subspecialty interests in Neuroradiology and Musculoskeletal imaging.

Research

Research Interests

My main research interest is in stroke and neurovascular imaging. Together with a group of close collaborators at the Mater Misericordiae University Hospital and the Dublin Neurological Institute we are examining the use of MRI, in particular diffusion weighted imaging, as a biomarker in stroke and transient ischemic attack.  I also have a research interest in clinical applications of MRI in the assessment of neurologic and musculoskeletal disorders.
