Dr. Richard Hallett II is a leading expert in cardiovascular imaging. In addition to serving as Northwest Radiology’s chief in this field, he works as an adjunct assistant professor of radiology at the prestigious Stanford University. Hallett was recently named one of Indianapolis Monthly’s “top docs” for the fourth time.
Dr. Hallett will be presenting on Peripheral Arterial Disease (PAD) and CTA of the Lower Extremity at the RSNA Annual Conference in Chicago on Friday, December 1 from 8:30 to 10 a.m.
PAD is a common cause of morbidity and mortality in developed countries. This disease is a circulatory problem in which narrowed arteries reduce blood flow to the limbs, most commonly in the legs. As stated in Dr. Hallett’s presentation, “Imaging for risk stratification and therapeutic planning traditionally involved catheter angiography. In recent years, cross-sectional imaging by CTA and MRA has proven a robust technique for non-invasive PAD assessment.” See Dr. Hallett’s presentation embedded below or click/tap here to view in another tab.
