Speaker:

Prakash M. Masand, M.D., Director, 3D Imaging Lab, Texas Children’s Hospital

Among his many roles and contributions to radiology, Masand is an associate professor at Baylor College of Medicine in Houston, Texas. He currently serves on the radiology faculty in the Department of Pediatric Radiology at Texas Children's Hospital, where he is the director of both the division of body and cardiovascular imaging, and the 3D imaging lab. He completed fellowships in pediatric radiology, cardiothoracic imaging, neuroradiology and magnetic resonance imaging within the Mallinckrodt Institute of Radiology at Washington University in St. Louis, Mo. 

Texas Children's Hospital named Masand Teacher/Clinical Educator of the Year, Department of Radiology. Notably, he earned a Norton Rose Fulbright Award for Excellence in Teaching and Education from Baylor College of Medicine, becoming the first pediatric radiologist to do so. Nominated by his peers as one of Houston's Top Doctors, he has also served as a Kenneth Fellowes Visiting Professor at Children's Hospital of Philadelphia. A widely-published author, he serves on the editorial boards of six medical journals and has served as principal investigator in numerous clinical trials.
