Dr. Mohamad Abdalkader is an Assistant Professor of Radiology at the Boston University School of Medicine and an Interventional Neuroradiologist at Boston Medical Center.

Dr. Abdalkader serves as a key member of the BMC department of radiology, section of diagnostic and interventional neuroradiology. His experience and multidisciplinary cross training in radiology, interventional radiology, interventional neuroradiology in Lebanon, Europe and USA provide him with unparalleled expertise in patient care in the field of interventional neuroradiology. At BMC, he is responsible for evaluating patients and their imaging and performing neuroendovascular procedures with the highest degree of technical angiographic skills including acute stroke intervention, intracranial aneurysm coiling, intracranial stenting, carotid stenting and vertebroplasty/kyphoplasty.

Dr. Abdalkader received his medical degree from Lebanese University – Faculty of Medical Sciences in Beirut, Lebanon in 2011. He completed a residency in Radiology at the Lebanese University in Beirut and at the Universite Catholique de Louvain in Belgium from 2011 to 2016 with dedicated training in interventional and neurointerventioal radiology. He was awarded diplomas in Radiology Specialty and Interventional Radiology. He also completed an ACGME accredited Neuroradiology fellowship at BMC in 2016-2017 and a second year of Interventional Neuroradiology fellowship at BMC in 2017-2018.

Dr. Abdalkader has served as an investigator in several research projects including stroke management, traumatic vascular injuries, and cerebral aneurysms. He is also leading two international and multicenter studies looking for coil migration during endovascular coiling and the importance of imaging for stroke treatment triage.
