Clinical Description
Dr. Taylor Davis is an Assistant Professor of Radiology and Radiological Sciences and Neurology and a board-certified neuroradiologist. He completed his radiology residency at Vanderbilt in 2013 and his neuroradiology fellowship at Vanderbilt in 2014 and then joined the Vanderbilt University School of Medicine faculty. His research interests include utilizing conventional and advanced MRI techniques including functional brain MRI (fMRI) using blood oxygenation level dependent (BOLD) technique and arterial spin labeling (ASL), vessel wall imaging (VWI) and diffusion tensor imaging (DTI) in the study of various neurologic diseases.
