Dr. Aylin Tekes is the Section Chief of Pediatric Neuroradiology at the Johns Hopkins Hospital, within the Department of Radiology and Radiological Science.

Dr. Tekes primary expertise is in diagnostic pediatric neuroradiology encompassing all ages from fetus to young adolescents with particular interest in congenital anomalies, neonatal brain injury, brain tumors, seizure imaging. Utilization and application of advanced magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) techniques including diffusion-tensor (DTI), susceptibility-weighted imaging (SWI) as applied in hypoxic ischemic injury, brain injury in the premature brain, head trauma and ECMO well reflects in her publications. In addition to pediatric neuroimaging, Dr. Tekes is an expert in diagnosis and classification of soft tissue vascular anomalies and imaging of bladder exstrophy. Part of her research and daily activities involve QI processes, primarily targetted to reduce/eliminate radiation exposure in children when appropriate and improve workflow efficiency.

She received her medical degree from Istanbul University and completed a residency in diagnostic radiology at Haydarpasa Research and Training Hospital in Istanbul, Turkey. She did clinical fellowships in Pediatric Radiology and Neuroradiology at The Johns Hopkins Hospital before joining faculty in 2008.
