Dr. Stephen Hecht

Board Certified Radiologist

Redding California Radiologist

Dr. Hecht came to Redding after a career in academic medicine, having been a full professor of radiology at both UCSF and UC Davis.

He is delighted to have found a location where he can practice in an outstanding medical environment, located in a great community that is perfect for his family.

Board certified in diagnostic radiology, Dr. Hecht is the only physician in the north state who is a senior member of the American Society of Neuroradiology and who holds the American Board of Radiology’s Certificate of Added Qualification in Neuroradiology.

Dr. Hecht is qualified to interpret all CT, MRI and Ultrasound studies.

He is also the only qualified interventional neuroradiologist in the north state, treating patients who need a variety of procedures, including brain aneurysm therapy, carotid stents, therapy of cerebral vascular malformations, tumor blood supply reduction, vertebroplasty, and even treatment of severe nosebleeds.

Many of the procedures Dr. Hecht performs were previously unavailable in the north state.

Dr. Hecht strongly believes that he and his staff must tend to each patient’s emotional needs for comfort and individual care while providing cutting edge, state-of-the-art technological services.

All the personnel at Advanced Imaging understand the importance of combining compassionate care with technical superiority. Quality counts.
