Out of the White Coat: New Director of Imaging and Cardiovascular Services, Dr. Mabout

University of Maryland Charles Regional Medical Center's Director of Imaging and Cardiovascular Services, Vlad Mabout brings more than 20 years of experience in his field in his new role. After moving on from another medical center, Mabout stepped into his new position as director of imaging and cardiovascular services in July amid the COVID-19 pandemic. In his earlier years, Mabout was fascinated by photography. Only later would this transform into a passion for a different type of film: radiology. To unwind after a long day, Mabout enjoys spending time with family and keeping up with his 15-year-old daughter and 6-year old son. To learn more about Vlad Mabout, read the issue of latest Maryland's Health Matters.
