College of Medicine

Research Area(s)

  • All aspects of pediatric imaging.
  • Innovative imaging technology, such as Diffraction Enhanced Imaging (DEI) at the Canadian Light Source (Synchrotron).
  • Radiation dose reduction and effects of radiation on children.


  • MD - University of Saskatchewan 1995
  • Diagnostic Radiology - University of Saskatchewan 2002
  • Pediatric Fellowship - University of Toronto 2004
  • Master of Science (MSc), University of Saskatchewan Department of Anatomy and Cell Biology - 2012


I practice Pediatric and General Radiology at the Royal University Hospital with the University Medical Imaging Consultants group of radiologists. I report cases in all age groups and in all the diagnostic modalities within the services offered at the Royal University Hospital but preferentially report pediatric cases.
