Hedvig Hricak, MD, PhD -- Chair, Department of Radiology; Carroll and Milton Petrie Chair

As Chair of the Department of Radiology at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, I am privileged to oversee a department renowned for its clinical excellence and innovation in anatomic imaging, molecular imaging and therapy, and interventional radiology.

I am a board-certified radiologist with expertise in cross-sectional anatomic and molecular imaging, particularly of gynecologic and prostate cancers, and I continue to be involved in radiologic practice and research. My research focuses on the evidence-based use of imaging in cancer management, including detection, treatment selection, treatment planning, and treatment follow-up. I helped develop the use of MRI and CT for gynecologic cancers and the application of MRI and MR spectroscopy for prostate cancer. I have published over 380 peer-reviewed original research articles and more than 300 review articles, editorials, and book chapters, as well as 18 books.
