Biography

Dr. Greenberg is an expert in the treatment of vascular diseases of the brain, spine, head and neck, as well as minimally invasive treatment of fractures of the spine.

He graduated magna cum laude from Brown University, where he was elected to the Phi Beta Kappa honor society. He went on to earn his medical degree from Cornell University, and was inducted into the prestigious Alpha Omega Alpha Medical Honor Society. After medical school, Dr. Greenberg completed a residency and fellowship in diagnostic radiology, neuroradiology and interventional neuroradiology / neuroendovascular surgery at New York Presbyterian Hospital-Weill Cornell Medical Center. He is a diplomat of the American Board of Radiology, and a senior member of the American Society of Neuroradiology and the Society of Neurointerventional Surgery. He is also certified in Neuroendovascular surgery by the American Society of Neurological Surgeons.

Throughout his medical career, Dr. Greenberg has been recognized as a compassionate and skilled physician who goes above and beyond to care for his patients. He has received numerous awards and has published many scientific articles and book chapters within the field of interventional neuroradiology. His research interests include intracranial aneurysms, subarachnoid hemorrhage, cerebral vasospasm, ischemic stroke and brain perfusion imaging, among others.

“My goal is to provide the highest level of patient care for the treatment of diseases of the brain, spine, head and neck,” he says. “I take an individualized approach to ensure each of my patients understands the disease process and treatment options and feels empowered to make the best healthcare decisions possible.”

Dr. Putman is Director of Interventional Neuroradiology at Inova Fairfax Hospital and an expert in the diagnosis and treatment of vascular diseases of the brain, spine, head and neck, as well as minimally invasive treatment of carotid stenosis and fractures of the spine.

 

He graduated magna cum laude from Southern Methodist University, where he was elected to the Phi Beta Kappa honor society. He went on to earn his medical degree from Johns Hopkins School of Medicine, and was inducted into the prestigious Alpha Omega Alpha Medical Honor Society. After medical school, Dr. Putman completed an internal medicine internship at Beth Israel Hospital in Boston, and residency and fellowship training in diagnostic radiology, neuroradiology and interventional neuroradiology at Yale-New Haven Hospital. He served as Director of Interventional Neuroradiology at Massachusetts General Hospital and Brigham and Women’s Hospital and went on to establish the Interventional Neuroradiology service line at Inova Fairfax Hospital in 2001. He is a diplomat of the American Board of Radiology, a senior member of the American Society of Neuroradiology, and a member of the Society of Neurointerventional Surgery.

 

Throughout his medical career, Dr. Putman has been recognized as a caring and accomplished physician. His work with the Dr. Juan Taveras Foundation in the Dominican Republic providing services to the underprivileged and training local physicians earned him the Dominican government’s highest honor: the Order of Merit of Duarte, Sánchez and Mella.

Other research interests include intracranial aneurysms, subarachnoid hemorrhage, cerebral vasospasm, ischemic stroke and brain perfusion imaging. He has published numerous scientific articles and book chapters and is regularly invited to present at national conferences.

MRI - What to Expect

MRI is an imaging tool that uses a strong magnet field combined with radio waves to produce images of the inside of the body. At Fairfax Radiology, all our subspecialty trained Radiologists and state-of-the-art MRI magnets focus on one thing: you. This translates to a more accurate diagnosis and a better-tailored treatment plan.You have the option to choose to schedule your appointment at one of our three MRI locations throughout Northern Virginia offering early morning, afternoon and late evening hours. Watch our video to show you what it is like to have an MRI at Fairfax Radiology.

List of Procedures in this Category

Body MRI

An imaging test that uses a magnetic field and radio waves to captures images of the chest, abdomen and/or pelvic regions.

Breast MRI

A noninvasive test that uses an intravenous contrast, magnetic field, radio waves, and a computer to produce detailed images of the breast's soft tissue.

Cardiac MRI

An imaging test that uses a magnetic field and radio waves to capture images of the anatomy of the heart in order to diagnose and monitor cardiac disease.

Fetal MRI

A type of MRI performed during pregnancy to evaluate a fetus for any conditions or complications that may be present.

Magnetic Resonance Angiography

A noninvasive test that uses a powerful magnetic field and radio waves to evaluate the function of blood vessels in the body.

Magnetic Resonance Arthrogram

A two-part exam that uses a magnetic field, radio waves and a contrast agent injected into the joint to show a more detailed image, including the cartilage, tendons and ligaments.

Magnetic Resonance Defecography

A noninvasive test that uses powerful magnets and radio waves to evaluate rectal function and determine how well the pelvic muscles are working.

Magnetic Resonance Elastography

A type of MRI that determines the stiffness (elasticity) of the liver by capturing the movements of the tissue and creating a color-coded map to pinpoint any areas of concern.

Magnetic Resonance Enterography

A noninvasive test that uses powerful magnets and radio waves to produce detailed images of the small intestine to help diagnose Inflammatory Bowel Disease and other abnormalities.

Musculoskeletal MRI

A diagnostic test that uses magnetic resonance imaging to create images of the joint structures, including shoulders, hands, wrists, elbows, hips, knees, ankles and feet.

Neuro MRI

A type of MRI that helps diagnose tumors, herniated and degenerated discs, spinal injuries, brain injuries and any injuries or conditions associated with the central nervous system.

Neuro Quantification

A type of post-MRI assessment that measures sections of the brain and compares them to those measurements of healthy, age-related peers.

Prostate MRI

An imaging test that uses a magnetic field and radio waves to capture images of the prostate and surrounding tissues in order to diagnose, evaluate and monitor diseases of the gland.
