Dr. Bernheim is a cardiothoracic radiologist who began his medical training by completing a six-year B.A./M.D. program out of high school, and then completed medical internship and radiology residency in New York followed by a sub-specialty fellowship in Boston while working clinically at the Massachusetts General Hospital and teaching and conducting research at Harvard Medical School.  While he enjoys day-to-day clinical cardiothoracic imaging and places providing excellent patient care as a paramount priority (he has read over 100,000 cases in his career), he also aims to involve himself in research, teaching, lecturing, and writing.  Through 2019, Dr. Bernheim has co-authored over three dozen paper and poster publications, has written four textbook chapters, is an active reviewer for several journals (including the Journal of Cardiovascular Computed Tomography), and has lectured at several medical conferences throughout the world, including at the Asian Congress of Thoracic Imaging in Taipei, Taiwan in 2015 and the Cardiothoracic Imaging Symposium in Chengdu, China in 2019.  Dr. Bernheim's chief research interests include lung cancer screening, interstitial lung disease, radiofrequency ablative and cryoablative techniques, the role of PET/CT in the oncologic patient, cardiac computed tomography, and artificial intelligence and deep learning.  He has served as international master for the Society for Cardiovascular Computed Tomography in 2014 and 2015 during their winter meetings in Hawaii. In addition, he has served as a radiology board examiner (thoracic section) for the past three years for the American Board of Radiology.  In 2019, Dr. Bernheim co-founded the Cardiothoracic Imaging Society of New York (CISNY).  He also co-founded and co-hosts an international cardiothoracic imaging podcast, which has reached thousands of listeners across several dozen countries.  Dr. Bernheim also serves on several boards and committees of local and national organizations and societies in addition to working as a consultant and advisor for medical industry for enterprises throughout the United States as well as Germany, Israel, and China.  Away from medicine, Dr. Bernheim enjoys reading, playing tennis, and international travel.
