AREAS OF EXPERTISE:

3-D medical imaging, 3-D printing in medicine, neuroimaging, cardiovascular imaging, endovascular disease

Ciprian N. Ionita is an expert on 3-D imaging in medicine, and the use of neuroimaging to diagnose, model and treat neurological and endovascular disease.

With colleagues, Ionita has used 3-D printing to create personalized models of the brain’s vascular system using real brain scans from patients. These models enable surgeons to test medical devices such as stents on an individual patient’s anatomy before implantation. The highly accurate designs allow for individualized treatment of disease.

He can speak to the media about how 3-D medical imaging can be employed to improve brain and other surgeries. He can also discuss the latest imaging technologies and devices for treating problems such as aneurysms, blood clots and strokes.

Ionita is director of the Endovascular Devices and Imaging Lab in the Toshiba Stroke and Vascular Research Center at UB. He also holds positions in UB’s radiology and neurosurgery departments.
