Hebert Alberto Vargas

I am a diagnostic radiologist with specialist training in oncologic and molecular imaging. My  clinical and research activities are centered on the use of advanced modalities such as diffusion-weighted and dynamic contrast-enhanced magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and positron-emission tomography (PET) for the non-invasive diagnosis, staging, treatment response assessment and follow-up of patients with cancer.

I serve as the Director of Genitourinary Radiology at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, and have a particular interest in studying cancers involving the urinary system (e.g. prostate, bladder, and kidneys) and the female reproductive organs (e.g. uterus and ovaries).

Medical imaging is a fast-moving field largely driven by rapid technological advances, and I am committed to exploiting our state of the art facilities through cutting-edge research in order to facilitate the rapid incorporation of advances in diagnostic imaging into the day-to-day care of patients with cancer.
