Dr. Charles M. Strother is a professor emeritus of Radiology, continuing his research related to imaging, aneurysm hemodynamics and device development as he steps back from day to day clinical practice. He also serves as the senior editor of the American Journal of Neuroradiology. His current research focuses on trying to define characteristics of aneurysm that may be useful in predicting the risk of rupture, trying to develop better and more durable devices for use in the endovascular treatment of aneurysms and ischemic stroke, and trying to improve the ability, using angiography and fluoroscopy, to more safely and effectively carry out minimally invasive endovascular procedures. This Texan came to Madison in 1967 for his year of medical internship at the University of Wisconsin Clinical Science Center and returned as an assistant professor of Radiology and Neurology in 1976 after completing his residencies and fellowships in Neurology, Diagnostic Radiology, and Neuroradiology at Stanford University Medical Center and The University of California San Francisco. Since then, his work has resulted in over 150 scientific publications, 4 books, 12 book chapters, and dozens of radiologists, neurologists, and neurosurgeons well trained in diagnostic and interventional neuroradiology. He has been an internationally invited lecturer to the United Kingdom, Sweden, Norway, Iceland, Italy, Hungary, the United Arab Emirates, Japan, Korea, Brazil, Argentina, Puerto Rico, and Canada.
