Michael H. Lev, MD

Dr. Michael H Lev, FAHA FACR, is Director of Emergency Radiology & Emergency Neuroradiology at Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH) in Boston, and a Professor of Radiology at Harvard Medical School. 

He has been an attending neuroradiologist at MGH since 1995 and is board certified in both Internal Medicine & Radiology, with a Certificate of Added Qualification in Neuroradiology. He served as Deputy Editor for neuroimaging of the journal Radiologyfrom August 2007 through March 2009, for which he continues to be a Special Consultant Deputy Editor, and has been on the editorial board of the American Journal of Neuroradiology (AJNR) since 2000.

He is an elected fellow of both the American Heart Association (AHA) and the American College of Radiology (ACR). He was Co-Principal Investigator, with Dr. Bonmassar, for both the NBIB funded University of Cincinnati “Point-of-Care” Center Grant and the more recent DOD funded CIMIT grant (Center for Integration of Medicine and Innovative Technology), studying the clinical feasibility of Electrical Impedance Spectroscopy (EIS) for the rapid, portable detection and monitoring of acute brain injury. Most recently, he has been an imaging co-investigator for the DOD funded “Low-level light therapy (LLLT) for Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI)” clinical trial, and has been a co-investigator for the NIH funded U01 project developing MRI/CT compatible deep brain stimulation (DBS) electrodes. 

His research interests include acute stroke imaging with advanced CTA & CTP techniques, Dual Energy CT applications in neuroimaging, rapid automated CT diagnosis & characterization with Deep Learning, and ED Process Workflow Analysis.
