Frank Tong, MD joined Emory in 1993 when he began his Radiology Residency. He continued his education with post-graduate training as a Diagnostic Neuroradiology fellow, and later pursued a Fellowship in Interventional Neuroradiology. Dr. Tong is currently an Assistant Professor of Radiology and Neurosurgery at Emory University Hospital.

Recently, Dr. Tong has been working to develop a stroke model for optimizing acute stroke imaging techniques and neuroprotective measures. In collaboration with Georgia Tech researchers, his team is also developing computational simulation of human cerebral aneurysms. Dr. Tong’s clinical research involves evaluating new endovascular devices and techniques, such as intracranial stenting and cerebral aneurysm treatment.

Since 2005, Dr. Tong has been a manuscript reviewer for the American Journal of Neuroradiology and has contributed to the publication of over 20 articles.
