Thanh Nguyen, MD, FRCP, FSVIN is the director of interventional neurology/ neuroradiology at Boston Medical Center (BMC) and Associate Professor of Neurology, Neurosurgery and Radiology at Boston University School of Medicine (BUSM).

After receiving her medical degree from McGill University Faculty of Medicine in Canada, Dr. Nguyen performed her neurology residency at Massachusetts General Hospital and Brigham and Women's Hospital in Boston. Following her fellowship in vascular neurology and neurocritical care at Massachusetts General Hospital, she completed a fellowship in interventional neuroradiology (INR) involving more than 1,000 INR procedures at Centre Hospitalier de l'Universite de Montreal with the internationally renowned experts Jean Raymond and others. She has now been involved in a total of more than 2,000 INR procedures, including more than 500 brain aneurysm interventions (coilings / flow diversion) and 150 acute stroke interventions.

Dr. Nguyen's clinical and research interests include brain aneurysm coiling / flow diversion and acute intra-arterial therapies for stroke. Other clinical interests include neurocritical care, pre-operative embolization for head and neck tumors, carotid and intracranial artery stenosis, subarachnoid hemorrhage, spinal vascular interventions, traumatic carotid and vertebral dissection, vertebroplasty and kyphoplasty for acute spinal fractures.

Dr. Nguyen has authored more than 80 peer-reviewed publications and contributed to many book chapters including an INR atlas. She is a reviewer for the neuroendovascular section of 8 neuroscience journals and has made more than 80 presentations at scientific meetings on a national and international level. She is Associate Editor of the Interventional Neurology Journal.

She was elected board member of the Society of Vascular and Interventional Neurology (SVIN) in 2008, re-elected in 2014 and Research Chair of the SVIN in 2013. She was awarded Fellow of the SVIN (FSVIN) in 2012 based on her contributions to the field of Interventional Neurology.

Dr. Nguyen serves as the 2017 Acute Endovascular Treatment Section Chair of the International Stroke Conference and 2017 SVIN 10th Annual Meeting Chair which will be held in Boston November 8-11 (
