Radvany received his medical degree from Northwestern University in Chicago in 1991. He completed a residency in diagnostic radiology at Tripler Army Medical Center in Honolulu and a fellowship in interventional radiology at the Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore. After completing his fellowship, he served for nine years at Brooke Army Medical Center in San Antonio, where he was promoted to lieutenant colonel and served as chief of the Interventional Radiology Service.

Radvany returned to Johns Hopkins in 2007 for a fellowship in endovascular surgical neuroradiology and then joined the faculty as an assistant professor of radiology, neurosurgery and neurology. He served as director of interventional neuroradiology at the Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center and director of the Endovascular Surgical Neuroradiology Training Program in the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine.

Radvany worked with teams of internationally known specialists developing endovascular techniques and medical devices for the treatment of brain aneurysms, stroke, vascular malformations and pseudotumor cerebri syndrome, a condition that arises when pressure inside the skull increases.

In 2015, he was recruited to York, Pennsylvania, to establish the Interventional Neuroradiology Program at WellSpan York Hospital. The program was certified by the Joint Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations (JCAHO) as a Comprehensive Stroke Center within three years.

Radvany has contributed chapters to more than 15 textbooks on endovascular treatment of neurovascular disorders and published more than 50 articles in medical journals. He is a reviewer for several medical journals and has lectured internationally.
