ABOUT AIAIKarel D. Kovnat, Ph.D, ABPP

Dr. Karel KovnatDr. Kovnat is CEO and Director of Neuropsychological Research at the Adler Institute for Advanced Imaging, LLC, the only second generation PET/CT facility in the greater Philadelphia area (opened May 2005). As a psychologist with advanced credentials and significant clinical experience, Dr. Kovnat focuses on providing an exceptional patient experience that supports the highest clinical standards in a respectful and welcoming setting. This is important because PET/CT scans provide better, more detailed and accurate information when patients are at ease and unburdened by administrative details.

Positron emissions tomography (PET) and computed tomography (CT) scans are primarily used for cancer (oncology) and heart (cardiac) patients. However, Medicare recently approved this technology for advanced diagnosis of certain patients with dementia. Dr. Kovnat has a strong research background in the uses of PET for patients with cognitive disorders. As a faculty member at Wake Forest University Baptist Medical Center’s Division of Neuropsychology, Kovnat researched the most advanced PET applications under a $7 million grant from the National Institutes of Health (NIH).

Kovnat cared for patients in her psychology practice for 11 years and continues as a faculty member of Cleveland’s Case Western Reserve University/University Hospitals of Cleveland (CWRU). A nationally known practitioner, Kovnat has completed the training and examinations to be a Diplomat of the America Board of Professional Psychology, a distinction achieved by approximately two percent of U.S. psychologists.

Kovnat completed her Ph.D. at the University of Pennsylvania in 1987 and a post-doctoral fellowship at CWRU, Cleveland. She lives in Jenkintown with her husband, Dr. Lee Adler, and two children. Adler is the medical director and co-founder of the Adler Institute for Advanced Imaging.
