Clinical Interests

Richard E. Latchaw, M.D., Professor of Radiology at the UC Davis Medical Center since 2002, has been a practitioner of diagnostic and interventional Neuroradiology for the past 38 years.

Dr. Latchaw has been a leader in the development of Diagnostic Neuroradiology throughout his career. He is internationally known for his work in the diagnosis and treatment of acute ischemic stroke, including the evaluation of cerebral perfusion.

He has performed all forms of image-guided procedures in the head, neck, and spine, including recanalization of acutely occluded vessels; intracranial and extracranial angioplasty and stenting; pre-operative embolization of intracranial and extracranial tumors; and ablation of aneurysms, vascular malformations and arteriovenous fistulae of the head, neck and spine.

His current research interests are the development of thrombectomy devices for the entire body, both arterial and venous; catheter-based systems for the infusion of chemotherapy and stem cells to treat brain tumors and other abnormalities; and catheter-based systems to monitor the traumatized brain.
