Professional Summary

Achala Vagal, MD, MS has been a neuroradiologist at the University of Cincinnati Gardner Neuroscience Institute since 2007. Dr. Vagal is an Associate Professor of Neuroradiology and Vice Chair of Research in the Department of Radiology, University of Cincinnati College of Medicine. She has specific expertise in advanced neuroimaging of cerebrovascular diseases. She is actively involved in multidisciplinary collaborations with the Cerebrovascular and Stroke Center of the University of Cincinnati (UC) Neuroscience Institute. Her roles have included being the radiology leader of the Cincinnati clinical site’s Clinical Trial Working Group for the NIH/ NINDS Network of Excellence in Neuroscience Clinical Trials (NEXT), NIH Neurological Emergencies Treatment Trials (NETT) Network and NIH Stroke NET.

Dr. Vagal has received several honors and awards including the National Talent Scholarship, and the University of Cincinnati Young Investigator Recognition Award. In 2012, she received the prestigious National American Roentgen Ray Society Radiology Research Scholarship award to study multimodal neuroimaging in stroke. In 2014, she was awarded the CCTST CT2 Research Scholar award and in 2015, the CCTST KL2 scholar award on related work. Her KL2 concentration area was implementation and management of central imaging core labs. She has extensive experience in project management of imaging core labs for stroke imaging, including the central imaging core lab in the NIH-funded multicenter CLEAR-ER and CLEAR–FDR trials. She was the Director of Imaging Core Lab housed at University of Cincinnati for the industry sponsored, multi institutional, Phase 3 PRISMS acute stroke trial and is the UC site PI for NIH funded, multicenter DEFUSE 3 acute stroke trial. She is also currently leading the core lab for NIH funded multicenter ICH Recovery trial. She has given numerous award winning presentations and has multiple peer-reviewed publications and book chapters to her credit.

Dr. Vagal's academic areas of interests include imaging in acute ischemic strokes, imaging in intracranial hemorrhage, perfusion in acute strokes and chronic steno-occlusive disease and advanced neuroimaging of brain tumors.
