Angelo, DelBalso
Email: delbalso@buffalo.edu
Phone: (716) 862-8582

Specialty/Research Focus:
Diagnostic Radiology

Research Summary:
As chair of the Department of Radiology, I work to ensure that we provide excellent education to medical students, training them in both basic and advanced imaging modalities. I pursue departmental connections with community resources to further our students’ education and coordinate our efforts to help students who have career interests in radiology with residency applications, including making their final selections and being accepted into programs. I have over 25 years’ experience serving in the military, active duty and as a reservist, and invite students to talk with me if they have an interest in a medical career in the military. My area of expertise is maxillofacial/head and neck imaging. I have previously served as the director of radiology at the Erie County Medical Center and since August 2000 have been director of radiology at Buffalo’s VA Medical Center. I am a fellow of the American College of Radiology and the American Society of Emergency Radiology and am certified by both the American Board of Radiology and the American Board of Oral & Maxillofacial Radiology. I have held several positions for the latter organization, including President. I also regularly review articles for radiology journals including RadioGraphics, Military Medicine, and Oral Surgery, Oral Medicine, Oral Pathology, Oral Radiology and Endodontology.

Ciprian, Ionita
Ionita, Ciprian, PhDResearch Assistant Professor
Email: cnionita@buffalo.edu
Phone: (716) 400-4283

Specialty/Research Focus:
Cardiovascular Disease; Diagnostic Radiology; Neuroradiology - Radiology; Radiological Physics; Vascular and Interventional Radiology; Vision science

Research Summary:
My research career focuses on improvement of endovascular image guided interventions and encompasses three major components: vascular disease research, endovascular device development and medical imaging. Since the beginning of my research I tried to develop and test endovascular device in patient relevant physiology in a lab setting. I developed the first balloon deployable asymmetric flow diverters nearly eight years ago and test them in idealized aneurysms phantoms. Over the years with my collaborators at Toshiba Stroke and Vascular Research Center (TSVRC), I developed an entire chain of manufacturing and testing of such devices. Concerning imaging, my research is focused on physiological conditions determination based on imaging such as angiography and CT and micro-CT.
