Mahesh Jayaraman, MD
Assistant Professor of Diagnostic Imaging and Neurosurgery
Diagnostic Imaging and Neurosurgery
Work: +1 401-444-5184
My current research interests related to cerebrovascular disease include:

- Understanding natural history and risks associated with treatment of brain arteriovenous malformations (AVMs).

- Evaluating flow dynamics of intracranial aneurysms and their implications on future rupture risk


Dr. Jayaraman obtained B.Sc. and M.D. Degrees at Brown University, then completed post-graduate training with residency in Diagnostic Imaging at Brown University/Rhode Island Hospital from 1999-2003.

Subsequently, he trained in both Diagnostic Neuroradiology (2003-2004) and Interventional Neuroradiology (2004-2006) at Stanford University. He returned to Brown as faculty in 2006, and currently practices at Rhode Island Hospital
