Biography

Gayle Rudofsky Salama, M.D is a board-certified radiologist specializing in Neuroradiology. She is Director of Spine Imaging, Assistant Professor at Weill Cornell Medicine and Assistant Attending Radiologist at the NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital-Weill Cornell Campus.

Dr. Salama earned her B.A. in Molecular Biology from Princeton University in 2008 after completing an undergraduate thesis under her advisor and Nobel Laureate, Dr. Eric Wieschaus. Dr. Salama then earned her M.D. with Distinction in Radiology Research from Albert Einstein College of Medicine in 2012. She was inducted to the Alpha Omega Alpha (AOA) medical honor society in her 4th year of medical school.

Following an internal medicine internship at Mount Auburn, a teaching hospital of Harvard Medical School, Dr. Salama completed residency training in Radiology at NewYork-Presbyterian/Weill Cornell Medicine where she was awarded the Distinguished Housestaff Award for Clinical Excellence in 2016.

Dr. Salama interprets a variety of studies, including radiographic, MRI, MRA, CT, and CTA examinations of the brain, head and neck, and spine. Her expertise is in performing fluoroscopic and CT-guided procedures such as lumbar punctures, myelograms, cisternograms, nerve blocks, facet blocks, epidural injections, and epidural blood patches. Her specific areas of research interest include diagnosis and minimally-invasive treatment of cerebrospinal fluid leaks and of degenerative disorders of the spine.
