About Me

I’m a neuro-oncologist with a clinical focus in brain and spinal cord cancers, and a research interest in diagnostic imaging. I serve as chief of neurology and as associate professor of radiology, neurology and neurological surgery at The Ohio State University. Because the nervous system is responsible for basic vital life functions, early detection of these cancers is crucial.

As one of the world’s most advanced cancer hospital, the OSUCCC – James of-fers the latest in diagnostic imaging technology. I specialize in researching and applying neuroimaging techniques to detect cancers in both the central and peripheral nervous system. Imaging methods such as X-rays, CT scans and PET scans provide us with non-surgical avenues to pinpoint and diagnose abnormal-ities. We also use non-invasive techniques such as ultrasound and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scans to detect disease. I hope my research efforts continue to improve our diagnostic imaging capabilities at The James, and ulti-mately move us closer to a cancer-free world.

I received medical training in some of the most highly respected medical insti-tutions in the nation. I completed a neuroradiology fellowship at Case Western Reserve University Hospitals and the University Hospitals of Cleveland. I also completed an interventional neuroradiology fellowship at the Cleveland Clinic Foundation. I’m proud to work alongside the team of experts at the OSUCCC – James as a pioneer in cancer prevention, detection, treatment and research.

Consulting and Related Relationships

At The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center, we support a faculty member’s research and consulting in collaboration with medical device, research and/or drug companies because a faculty member’s expertise can guide important advancements in the practice of medicine and improve patient care. In order to provide effective management of these relationships, the University requires annual disclosures from all faculty members with external interests related to their University responsibilities.

As of 03/26/2018, Dr. Bourekas has reported no relationships with companies or entities.
