Radiology Personnel

Jalal Andre, M.D.

Associate Professor



Dr. Andre is director of neurological MRI and MRI safety officer at Harborview Medical Center and a UW associate professor of radiology, with expertise in neuroradiology.

Dr. Andre’s research interests include the clinical application of advanced MRI techniques in assessing brain vessel abnormalities and traumatic brain injury. Specifically, Dr. Andre’s focus involves measuring brain perfusion (blood flow) using arterial spin labeling, an MRI technique that can non-invasively measure blood delivery to the brain and requires no IV, injectable substance or radiation.

Dr. Andre’s on-going clinical research is using this technique to better understand vasospasm, a type of temporary vessel narrowing that can occur in patients with aneurysmal subarachnoid hemorrhage (a brain bleed). Similarly, Dr. Andre is also exploring the application of this non-invasive technique to evaluate sports-related traumatic brain injury in adolescents.

Dr. Andre earned his bachelor’s degree in biochemistry from the University of California at Riverside and his M.D. from Drexel University College of Medicine in Philadelphia, PA. He completed an internship at Albert Einstein Medical Center in Philadelphia. After four years of residency training in diagnostic radiology at Monmouth Medical Center in Long Branch, NJ., Dr. Andre completed two years of fellowship training in neuroradiologyat at Stanford University. Dr. Andre has been on faculty at UW since August 2011 and is board certified in radiology. He also possesses a certificate of additional qualification in neuroradiology and is a delegate of the American Board of Radiology.
