Biographical Info

Linda A. Heier, M.D., F.A.C.R., Professor of Clinical Radiology, earned her M.D. from the University of Western Ontario in Canada. This was followed by radiology residency training at the University of Toronto. She established her interest in Pediatric Neuroradiology at this time when she did her pediatric rotation at The Hospital for Sick Children. A two-year Fellowship in Neuroradiology followed at the NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital/Weill Cornell Medical Center and at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center. Later in her career, Dr. Heier also did a one-year Interventional Neuroradiology Fellowship at N.Y.U. Medical Center. Dr. Heier was inducted as a Fellow of the American College of Radiology (F.A.C.R.) in April 2014 in recognition of her accomplishments and contributions to the discipline of radiology. She was the Chief of the Division of Neuroradiology for over 20 years until January 2021 when she stepped down to pursue less administration and more clinical work.

Dr. Heier is a senior member of the American Society of Neuroradiology, American Society of Pediatric Neuroradiology, American Society of Head and Neck Radiology, American Society of Spine Radiology, American Society of Interventional and Therapeutic Neuroradiology and the American Society of Functional Neuroradiology.

Dr. Heier is board certified in diagnostic radiology and earned a Certificate of Added Qualification (CAQ) in Neuroradiology. She reviews for the American Journal of Neuroradiology, the American Journal of Roentgenology, Neuroradiology and the Journal of Computerized Axial Tomography. Currently her interests include pediatric neuroradiology, fetal central nervous system MRI and clinical functional MRI for surgical planning.
