Dr. Ashkan A. Malayeri's research involves the optimization of MRI and CT techniques for clinical problem solving.


Dr. Malayeri earned his medical degree from Tehran University of Medical Sciences and completed his residency in diagnostic radiology at the Johns Hopkins Hospital. He spent a year as a clinical fellow and instructor where he received sub-specialized training in body magnetic resonance imaging, also at Johns Hopkins. He was a recipient of the 2013 RSNA Fellow Research Grant when he studied high resolution MRI imaging of the myocardium in patients with atrial fibrillation.

Dr. Malayeri is currently the lead radiologist for body MRI at the Department of Radiology and Imaging Sciences and is responsible for interpretation, quality control and standardization of body MRI procedures. In addition to his role at the NIH, Dr. Malayeri holds a position as Adjunct Assistant Professor in the Department of Radiology and Imaging Sciences at the Johns Hopkins Hospital, where he continues to participate in resident and fellow education by providing lectures and case conferences.

Research interests:
Dr. Malayeri’s research involves the optimization of MRI and CT techniques for clinical problem solving. He is particularly interested in whole body and functional MRI in cancer diagnosis, staging and evaluation of response to treatment.
