Biography

James W. Murakami, MD, MS, is a pediatric radiologist at Nationwide Children’s Hospital and a Clinical Assistant Professor of Radiology at The Ohio State University College of Medicine. Dr. Murakami received his medical degree from the University of California at San Diego and completed his internship and radiology residency at the University of Washington in Seattle. That residency included a research fellowship and two years of graduate work in Bioengineering leading to a M.S. degree. Dr. Murakami continued his training with a fellowship in pediatric radiology at the the Seattle Children’s Hospital and Regional Medical Center. Lastly, a four month fellowship in pediatric interventional radiology was completed at Pittsburgh Children’s Hospital. After two years as a staff radiologist specializing in Neuroradiology and Interventional Radiology at the Seattle Children’s Hospital and Regional Medical Center (1997-1999), Dr. Murakami and his family relocated to Columbus Ohio and he had been on staff at Nationwide Children’s Hospital up to the present. He is primarily a clinician with interventional radiology interests focusing on sclerotherapy of vascular malformations and benign cysts of the head and neck, orbits, and bones, and neuroradiology interests focusing on functional MRI. His educational and research interests include ultrasound guided procedures in children, sclerotherapy, and functional MRI.
