Radiology Personnel

Danial Hallam, M.D., M.Sc.



Dr. Hallam is a UW Professor of radiology and neurological surgery. He is a recognized authority in stroke intervention and endovascular treatment of diseases of the brain and spine. Along with his work with patients, he participates in clinical trials related to acute stroke therapy. He is board certified in radiology.

After earning his undergraduate degree in biomedical engineering from Brown University, Dr. Hallam attended Stanford University where he pursued simultaneously a degree in medicine as well as electrical engineering graduate work in imaging. Next, he completed a residency in radiology at the University of California, San Francisco and remained there for a fellowship in diagnostic neuroradiology. After several years in diagnostic neuroradiology, he performed a second fellowship at UW in interventional neuroradiology.
