Dr. Leitman has been a Thoracic Radiologist for over 33 years, interpreting conventional chest X-rays and chest CT's. He is particularly interested in thoracic trauma and patients in the critical care setting.

Dr. Leitman has been involved with Radiology Administration at both Bellevue Hospital and NYU School of Medicine for many years. He is currently the Chair of the NYU-Bellevue Radiation Safety Committee, a Medical Board Committee. Previously, he was responsible for the Radiology Quality Assurance Program at both institutions; he currently chairs the QA/QI program at Bellevue.

From 2004 through 2013 Dr. Leitman served as the Section Chief for Thoracic Imaging, where he was responsible for the organization of the 13 members of this section, their daily work assignments, resident and fellow education in Chest Imaging, as well as sectional research endeavors.

For many years, Dr. Leitman had been involved with medical student teaching and he was the Radiology liaison to the Department of Anatomy. In addition to course organization, he conducted a series of lectures/seminars on basic radiological interpretation and on imaging of the thorax to the first year medical students; he also provided monthly lectures/seminars on the subject of Thoracic Radiology to 3rd and 4th year Radiology elective students. Furthermore, he has mentored several senior medical students who were interested in a radiological career and he currently mentors several of the Radiology faculty members.
