Org chart


Radiologist of the Radiology Service at the Cruces University Hospital. She arrived in 1988 to complete her radiology residency. She has worked as a medical practitioner in the sphere of diagnostic neuroradiology. She has held the position of service director for the past six years. It is a large service in terms of both personnel and technical expertise and forms part of the region’s most important hospital, which represents a great challenge due to the enormous care load and the effort required to stay up-to-date on both diagnostic methods and intervention procedures. She really enjoys working with patients, but her new role as service director has allowed her to become familiar with the profession from another perspective, interact with other professionals and participate in and help stimulate innovative projects designed to develop technology and incorporate advances into the healthcare practice.
