ChoudhryFarooq-Radiology01      OKLAHOMA CITY – Neuroradiologist Farooq A. Choudhry, M.D., has established his medical practice at OU Physicians. He will also be an assistant professor of radiology for the University of Oklahoma College of Medicine. Neuroradiologists are specialists who diagnose imaging abnormalities of the head and neck, brain and spine.

      Choudhry is specifically interested in radiologic imaging of gliomas (a type of tumor that starts in the brain or spine). He is board eligible in radiology.

      Choudhry completed a neuroradiology fellowship at the University of Virginia, Charlottesville. He completed his residency in diagnostic radiology at West Virginia University School of Medicine, Morgantown, where he also earned his medical degree. He completed an internship at West Virginia University School of Medicine Charleston Division.

      Choudhry is a member of the American Society of Neuroradiology, American College of Radiology, American Roentgen Ray Society and Radiological Society of North America.

      With more than 975 doctors and advanced practice providers, OU Physicians is the state’s largest physician group. The practice encompasses almost every adult and child specialty. Many OU Physicians have expertise in the management of complex conditions that is unavailable anywhere else in the state, region or sometimes even the nation. Some have pioneered surgical procedures or innovations in patient care that are world firsts.

      OU Physicians see patients in their offices at the OU Health Sciences Center in Oklahoma City and at clinics in Edmond, Midwest City, Lawton and other cities around Oklahoma. When hospitalization is necessary, they often admit patients to OU Medical Center. Many also care for their patients in other hospitals around the metro area. OU Physicians serve as faculty at the University of Oklahoma College of Medicine and train the region’s future physicians.
