Alexander Rich, MD is Section Chief of Neuroradiology at Regional One Health. He is board-certified by the American Board of Radiology with a Certificate of Added Qualification (CAQ) in Neuroradiology.
He earned his medical degree at University of North Carolina School of Medicine in Chapel Hill, and then completed a radiology residency at University of Tennessee Health Science Center in Memphis and a fellowship in neuroradiology at Duke University in Durham, North Carolina.
Dr. Rich has unique expertise in the field of otolaryngology, which focuses on the ears, nose and throat (ENT). He completed two years in a dedicated otolaryngology residency and has several first author publications in major ENT journals.
“I thoroughly enjoy imaging of the head and neck and believe that my direct ENT surgical experience and hearing loss research aid me tremendously in my interpretive capabilities,” Dr. Rich said. “It allows me to provide detailed subspecialty reads for our referring providers and support the best patient care possible.”
Dr. Rich has specialized training in neuro-oncologic imaging from his fellowship at Duke University Medical Center, a world leader in the field, which he uses to help provide patients with the most accurate diagnoses and evaluations of treatment response.
He also trained in the novel field of CT-guided spinal pain injections, often in patients where conventional injections are difficult due to prior surgery or anatomic limitations. “Helping those with chronic back pain where other treatments have previously been unsuccessful is something I am eager to share with patients in the Mid-South,” he said.
