More Mayo radiologists join KRMC

Interventional radiologist Dr. Chris Porter and neuroradiologist Dr. Brett Young are now part of the Kingman Regional Medical Center staff. Both doctors recently joined with the four other Mayo-trained radiologists (Dr. Wade Alleman, Dr. Kale Bodily, Dr. Douglas Brandt, and Dr. Christopher Johansen) at High Desert Radiology in Kingman.

As an interventional radiologist, Porter is an expert in using medical imaging technologies to guide miniscule instruments to examine or treat areas inside the body. Interventional radiology procedures often replace open surgical procedures to clear arteries, check for disease, or to perform a range of other minimally invasive operations on the body.

Porter attended medical school at the University of Colorado School of Medicine in Denver and did his residency in radiology at Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minn. He comes to Kingman from Charlottesville, Va., where he recently completed fellowship training in vascular/interventional radiology at the University of Virginia.

As a neuroradiologist, Young is an expert in using advanced imaging technologies to view functional processes in the brain, spine, and peripheral nervous system. Neuroradiology images allow for the diagnosis or assessment of such conditions as stroke, multiple sclerosis and Alzheimer's disease.

Young attended medical school at the Mayo Clinic College of Medicine and did his residency in diagnostic radiology at Duke University in Durham, N.C. He recently completed a fellowship in neuroradiology at Duke University.

Both Porter and Young provide services upon referral of the patient's primary care physician or specialist.
