Dr. Paldino is board certified in Diagnostic Radiology with and additional subspecialty certification (CAQ) in Neuroradiology.

Dr. Paldino's primary research interests relate to functional neuroimaging techniques, in particular what they can tell us about how different parts of the brain are connected, how that connectivity contributes to cognitive function, and how it goes awry in disease states.
