Biography

Born in Florida and raised in San Diego, Dr. James A. Cooper is a Board certified diagnostic radiologist who is fellowship trained in Neuroradiology. He obtained his undergraduate degree from the University of California, San Diego, and after working as a research assistant for the World Health Organization in Geneva, Switzerland, he received his medical degree from Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland, Ohio. Many of his elective courses during Medical School were taken at the Cleveland Institute of Art in Medical Illustration. Dr. Cooper received his diagnostic radiology residency training and a neuroradiology fellowship at Yale New Haven Hospital, where he was also Chief Resident in Radiology.


Dr. Cooper joined Radiology Medical Group in 1998, and is expert in all types of diagnostic medical imaging modalities. In addition, he is very accomplished in many types of interventional procedures, especially ultrasound-guided needle aspiration and biopsy procedures. Dr. Cooper is considered to be one of the world’s leading Medical Illustrators. He continues to be quite active in this field, and has published each issue of Radiographics (a major international diagnostic radiology publication) since July 1994. He has illustrated several medical textbooks and medical journals, and most recently was commissioned to do the medical drawings, which appear etched in glass at the RSNA exhibit at the Epcot Center Millenium Celebration in Orlando, Florida.
