Board Certified Diagnostic Radiologist, Clinical Radiologist, SCBiography
Dr. David Ayoub is a board certified radiologist with over 20 years of experience in diagnostic radiology. He is a senior partner in Clinical Radiologists, SC, a large private practice multispecialty group practicing in over 35 hospitals and clinics in central and southern Illinois, in affiliation with Southern Illinois University School of Medicine radiology residency. His current interests have been early infantile rickets that mimics child abuse. He recently published a critique in the American Journal of Radiology that proposed rickets likely explained the classic metaphyseal lesion, once thought to be a pathognomonic sign of inflicted skeletal trauma in infants. He has reviewed over 400 cases of unexplained fractures in infants and presented preliminary findings at meetings of the American Society of Bone and Mineral Research and the Radiological Society of North America. His research involves a multidisciplinary approach in collaboration with experts from pediatrics, orthopedic surgery, genetics, endocrinology and child abuse. Current projects include detailing the radiographic findings of the skeletal changes of recovering rickets.
