Doctor Marco Grimaldi is the Diagnostic Neuroradiology Unit Director in Humanitas Research Hospital.

Medical areas of interest:

  • magnetic resonance
  • computed tomography
  • angiography of the central nervous system, brain and spine
  • study of the brachial plexus
  • functional neuroradiology, in particular, study of cerebral perfusion for perfusion CT related to problems in an emergency regime
  • spine dimorphism, in particular of the paediatric age and in rare diseases.

He has developed full diagnostic, organizational and managerial autonomy of any problem in outpatient, hospital and emergency neuroradiology.

Research areas of interest:

  • Functional imaging studies on coma
  • Diagnosis and development of prognostic algorithms
  • Research and development, even experimental, of new applications related to technological developments (research on new protocols for the use of the Multidetector Computed Tomography (MDCT), for the use of perfusion CT in vascular and emergency environments finally, study of the trachea in patients at risk of anesthesiology).

Previous experience:

1990 – 2012 Neuroradiologist at Hospital of San Gerardo in Monza, Italy

He was the Director on highly specialised activities related to functional neuroradiology.

He worked in diagnostic autonomy, organization and management of any problem within neuroradiological outpatient, inpatient and emergency context.

He is particularly interested in the field of functional neuroradiology, in research and experimental development of new applications also tied to technological developments and creation of new protocols for use of MDCT (use of CT perfusion imaging in the field of vascular and urgency.

He was involved in the study of the trachea in patients at high anaesthetic risk), in paediatric radiology with particular reference to diagnosis and clinical management of rare diseases (consultant in the Outpatient Unit for metabolic diseases and in the Outpatient Unit for rare and genetic diseases at the Hospital). He is also interested in the study of problems related to the craniocervical junction.

Teaching experience:

From 2002 to 2012 he has been a professor at Milano-Bicocca University of Milan.

From 2002 to 2012 : Professor of the courses “Technique and diagnostics for images I”, “Technique and diagnostics for images II” and “Semeiotics neuroradiological CT” for the degree in Medical Radiology for Images and Radiotherapy.
From 2003 to 2012: Professor of the course “Functional Brain Diagnostics” for the Degree in Physiotherapy.
From 2003 to 2012: Professor for the Degree Course in Neurotherapy and psychomotricity of the developmental age.
From 2006 to 2009: Lecturer at the School of Specialization in Radiodiagnostics.
