MBBS (Hons), FRANZCR

Dr. Afaghi graduated MBBS (Hons) from UNSW and completed internship and residency at the Royal North Shore Hospital. This was followed by further registrar training in Neurosurgey before embarking on a career in Radiology.

Vahid has completed his United States Medical Licensing Examination and is a Fellow of the Royal Australian College of Radiologists. Vahid is a general diagnostic and interventional radiologist with sub-speciality interest in neuro-radiology, spinal intervention, body imaging, prostate imaging, MRI and Cardiac imaging where he holds level A certification by the conjoint committee of the CT coronary angiography.

Dr. Nick Masoudi

MBBS (UNSW), FRANZCR

Dr. Masoudi graduated medicine from the University of New South Wales and completed his internship and residency at Concord Hospital. He subsequently undertook an additional year in Nuclear Medicine at the Prince of Wales Hospital prior to commencement of radiology training at the John Hunter Hospital in Newcastle.

Nick’s speciality interests include MRI, musculoskeletal imaging and spinal interventions.

Our Story

Harbour Radiology, North Sydney, opened its door to patients on 11th April 2016, but behind the relatively simple Scandinavian clean lined inspired façade of Harbour Radiology, is many years of work by Vahid, Nick and Adam.

The idea stared many years ago, when Nick and Vahid developed a passion for physics and mathematics at the medical school of UNSW. During those years, they had little idea that pathology is nothing more than the study of human suffering using any tool available to human kind, be it photons of light used by traditional Pathologists, electromagnetic radiation, or sound waves used by Radiologists! Their shared passion planted the seeds of Harbour Radiology. They would soon meet Adam, their future partner, at John Hunter Hospital, where they completed specialist Radiology training.

Just like our story, the field of diagnostic and interventional Radiology has grown from its simple roots after discovery of X-ray by Röntgen to a field that uses sounds waves, magnetic fields and ionising radiation to diagnose and treat human pathology. We don’t forget that behind the images seen on our screens, generated by variety of modern imaging equipment, is a patient and a clinical question.

At Harbour Radiology, we are inspired by the hard work of our clinical colleagues diagnosing and treating human disease, and will do our best to use our expertise to assist our colleagues, and ultimately our patients. Modern medicine relies predominantly on imaging, allowing us to observe an interesting mix of human pathology. It is our intention in these regular publications to share our observations and studies with you in order to improve the outcome for our patients.

In summary, radiology is nothing more than human pathology seen through differential sound waves, the attenuation and reflection of different tissues exploited by ultrasound, differential x-ray beam absorptions exploited by x-rays, and CT and complicated T1 and T2 relaxation times of different tissues used in MRI imaging, all of which has no meaning unless put into correct clinical context.
It is our intention to adopt regular publications as a vehicle for an open dialogue where our expertise and experience may be shared, using cases referred to us from the North Shore area.

Yours Sincerely

Vahid, Nick, Adam
