Dr. Linda G Leithe has the following 2 specialties
- Diagnostic Radiology
Radiologists help doctors get a closer look at what’s happening inside your body. If your primary care doctor wants to investigate your symptoms further, they may refer you to a radiologist to get an ultrasound or x-ray. Some radiologists specialize in mammography and breast imaging, which is who you see when you need a mammogram. A Radiologist can also determine if bones are broken or fractured after any kind of accident.
Radiologists are trained to perform MRIs and CT scans, both of which are used to determine the presence of diseases or disorders and help your doctor properly diagnose you. They can detect anything from tumors, bleeding and infections to bone and muscle disorders.
A radiologist is a physician who specializes in the use of medical imaging to diagnose and treat illnesses or injuries in patients.
The different types of medical imaging are X-ray, computed tomography (CT) scans, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), ultrasound, and nuclear medicine.
Radiologists are experts in these different types of tests and can advise a primary care doctor on which test is most appropriate in a specific case. These doctors also assist primary care doctors in analyzing the images produced by these tests in order to determine next steps necessary for treatment.

My daughter has been treated extensively at Hopkins, Georgetown, and Children's in DC for the last two and a half years. She was told that she had to learn to live with a headache. We moved to Chapel Hill to be close to Duke. My daughter's paediatrician in Virgina suggest we try Duke; she felt that we may be able to find a doctor their that was able to help. Without a name or even a direction of who we were to see, we moved to Chapel Hill last summer. We found Dr. Leithe a few short months after our move. Dr Leithe's ability to analysis a problem and think outside of the box is a talent that seems to be lacking in medicine. In addition to her extensive training and education, her tenacity and true care and commitment to her patients make her an amazing physician. We are blessed beyond measure to have her caring for my daughter.
She is an interventional neuro radiologist and specializes in caring for people who have very complicated and debilitating cases, and sticks with them through it all. She patches csf leaks in a manner not done anywhere else, which gives people their lives back. So caring, and follow up is amazing. For csf leak, or people who have been diagnosed with MAV, she is the best.
