LONGBOAT KEY, FL / ACCESSWIRE / May 20, 2021 / It is with great pride that Dr. Jose Pizarro, lauded radiologist and founder and chief executive of Premier Diagnostic Imaging, announces the debut of his new YouTube channel. The channel, which concentrates on medical matters, with a particular focus on radiology, is now live and ready to welcome viewers. Once there, visitors will see screen captures of the channel’s inaugural content: two brand new, professionally-edited videos documenting important information about the many modern and sophisticated ways of capturing images related to personal health-Dr. Pizarro’s area of expertise.

While most patients are familiar with the basic tools of radiology like X-rays, CT scans, and MRIs, the field is undergoing exciting new developments each year. These significant advancements show the way toward helping more patients with non-invasive scans of their vital organ systems. Jose Pizarro, a neuroradiologist based out of Longboat Key, Florida, shares seven recent advancements in the field of radiology and details on how they can help patients with debilitating disorders live more normal lives.

While any type of brain injury has a great impact on the patient’s life, traumatic brain injuries (TBI) are particularly difficult to diagnose. Regular brain imaging techniques such as CT scans and MRIs might fail to detect mild and moderate injuries. This calls for an advanced diagnostic tool called diffusion tensor imaging or DTI for short.

Imaging tests are important for doctors to see what is going on literally under the skin of the patient. Different imaging modalities, or types, allow doctors to get a clear picture of the interior of the body or only a certain part of it. Mammography for example uses X-ray imaging tests to examine the patient’s breast tissue. If the doctor suspects a concussion, they’d recommend a different imaging test such as a CT scan.

Dr. Jose Pizarro of Longboat Key, Florida, is board certified in diagnostic radiology and neuroradiology. He is the former chairman of radiology and section chief of neuroradiology at Mount Sinai Medical Center. Jose Pizarro MD has worked together with several leaders and researchers in the field of Alzheimer’s disease, memory disorders, and diffusion tensor imaging. He currently evaluates diffusion tensor Imaging and the effects of trauma on thousands of patients every year, including many NFL players.

Most patients are familiar with the basic job functions of a radiologist. For example, if a child falls, an X-ray will be taken to determine whether the child has broken a bone. This technology has existed for over a hundred years and has developed into an exciting field full of many essential advancements. Dr. Jose Pizzaro, a respected neuroradiologist from Longboat Key, Florida, explains how radiology goes beyond broken bones and diagnoses problems in many areas of the body.

Since its inception in the early 20th century, radiology has consistently been at the forefront of scientific and medical developments. Radiology is continually changing thanks to new technological advancements. Jose Pizarro, a board-certified neuroradiologist from Longboat Key, Florida, describes how technology will impact the future of radiology, examining some new techniques that will help doctors achieve better treatment of their patients.


Two of the most exciting recent advancements in neuroradiology are diffusion tensor imaging and fiber tractography. Diffusion tensor imaging is used to estimate white matter areas in the brain and help surgeons plan surgeries for brain tumors and other severe medical conditions. Fiber tractography is used to study the results of diffusion tensor imaging, examining the structure of the living brain.

Traumatic brain injury can cause long-lasting effects that seriously impact a patient’s quality of life. In the long term, the consequences of a traumatic brain injury could be life-changing. Dr. Jose Pizarro, a neuroradiologist based in Longboat Key, Florida, explains the long-term effects of traumatic brain injury and how neuroradiologists use diagnostic imaging to mitigate its impact.

Concussions can be a serious medical problem. Any type of head trauma can result in a concussion, which can have extensive medical consequences for the victim. Repeated concussions can cause permanent brain damage and severe chronic conditions. Dr. Jose Pizarro, a neuroradiologist from Longboat Key, Florida, explains the diagnosis and treatment of concussions, including some serious conditions that can result from repeated concussions.

“My father and many family members from Puerto Rico are doctors, so it was natural for me to want to also be a doctor. After my medical education, I saw radiology as a field that was a natural fit for my talents. It was also a rapidly expanding field with lots of opportunities for practitioners to discover new ways to use technology to help our patients. My new business, Premier Diagnostic Imaging, is helping to lead the way in harnessing that technology to provide the best and most efficient imaging in the industry.”

“I stay motivated by sharing ideas with colleagues and giving them new ideas as well.  I like to lead by example.  I possess strong motivation and work ethic, and I try to make that contagious.  I always try to share what makes me happy and the tools that have helped me in life.  I tend to motivate people with positivity rather than negativity.  Of course, some negative feedback is necessary at times, but for the most part I think, positive feedback is the biggest motivator there is.  I think people enjoy working with people that are positive and treat them well.  I tend to be very complimentary of people when they do a good job.  I try to drive them to do bigger and better things as they evolve in their career.  I think that was very helpful when I was training residents when I was an academic.”
