Dr. Kumar was also integrally involved in the original research on PET (Positron Emission Tomography) – a modality invented and developed at the Mallinckrodt Institute of Radiology. Dr. Kumar has also been affiliated with the UCLA School of Medicine, where he was a Clinical Assistant Professor. Dr. Kumar is also on staff at local area hospitals, close to SGVDC. Dr. Kumar is an active member of the Radiological Society of North America, American Roentgen Ray Society, Society of Nuclear Medicine and The American College of Nuclear Physicians.
What differentiates SGVDC from other outpatient imaging facilities is the academic excellence and expertise Dr. Kumar brings from his career in academics, as well as his time with the Mallinckrodt Institute of Radiology. Unlike other outpatient facilities, all of SGVDC’s diagnostic radiology, exam interpretations, exam protocols, technologist training, and equipment and technology acquisitions are based on the high standards associated with academic medical institutions — under which Dr. Kumar trained. SGVDC is an ACR-accredited Imaging Facility. He is involved in all aspects of the operations of both facilities.
