Dr. Paul Saurel Wheeler is an Associate Professor in the Johns Hopkins Medicine Department of Radiology and Radiological Science and serves as Staff Radiologist for The Johns Hopkins Hospital. He specializes in neuroradiology and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI).

Dr. Wheeler received his undergraduate and medical degrees from Harvard University, completing his M.D. in 1961. He interned at the Cleveland (Ohio) Metropolitan Hospital, and then undertook a residency in pathology at Case Western Reserve University, also in Cleveland. He soon opted for radiology, and came to The Johns Hopkins Hospital in 1963. His training was interrupted in 1966 by induction into the army as a general medical officer and assignment to a special forces unit in Vietnam. He returned after two years to complete his training. He joined the faculty of Johns Hopkins as an Assistant Professor.

Dr. Wheeler was a key member of the Johns Hopkins research team that pioneered an x-ray diagnosis system that was widely used for several decades. Additionally, he is renowned for his expertise in the use of chest x-rays for the detection of tuberculosis and has worked on national surveys for coal miners and asbestos workers. more
