Thierry A.G.M. Huisman, M.D., serves as director of the Department of Imaging and Imaging Science at Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center. In addition, he directs the Division of Pediatric Radiology and Pediatric Neuroradiology at The Johns Hopkins Hospital.

Dr. Huisman is a professor of radiology, pediatrics, neurosurgery and neurology. He graduated cum laude from medical school at the Erasmus University in Rotterdam, the Netherlands, before completing residencies in radiology and pediatrics, and fellowships in pediatric radiology and neuroradiology at the University Hospital Zurich in Switzerland. He became Chairman and Radiologist-in-Chief of the Department of Diagnostic Imaging at the University Children’s Hospital Zurich in 2005, before he was recruited to Johns Hopkins in 2007.

With a primary focus of expertise and research in pediatric neuroradiology, Dr. Huisman has given more than 300 invited lectures, published 250 peer reviewed articles and reviews, 45 book chapters, serves on multiple scientific committees of the various radiological societies and has organized multiple national and international meetings. He is a faculty member of the AIRP course in Washington, DC, and course advisor for the IDKD course in Davos, Switzerland. He is a reviewer for multiple scientific journals and is an editorial member of five journals. He is the president of the American Society of Pediatric Neuroradiology (2014/15) and an elected fellow of the International Cancer Imaging Society. more
