Michael D. Repplinger
MD, PhD

  • Emergency Medicine

About

Dr. Repplinger joined the Division of Emergency Medicine after graduating from the inaugural class of the UW Emergency Medicine Residency Program in June 2010, where he served as Chief Resident. His research interests include reducing medical radiation exposure for emergency department patients as well as novel uses of magnetic resonance imaging in the emergency department setting. Dr. Repplinger continues to investigate the use of MR-Pulmonary Angiography as a means for detecting pulmonary embolism. Current and future projects include collaborative efforts to reduce radiation from CT scanning in the community, patient perceptions of medical radiation, and direct comparison of contrast-enhanced abdominal CT with contrast-enhanced MRI for the evaluation of appendicitis.

Research and publications

Dr. Repplinger’s research interests focus on the cost-effective and time-efficient use of magnetic resonance imaging as a means of reducing the burden of radiation exposure from diagnostic imaging for emergency department patients. Having presented preliminary data at the annual meeting of SAEM, Dr. Repplinger continues to investigate the use of MR-pulmonary angiography as a means of detecting pulmonary embolism. Current and future projects include collaborative efforts to reduce radiation from CT scanning in the community, patient perceptions of radiation exposure from medical imaging, cost-effective imaging strategies from the emergency department, and a direct comparison of contrast-enhanced CT with contrast-enhanced MRI for the evaluation of appendicitis.
