I am a radiologist with subspecialty training in both neuro- and nuclear-oncology imaging. I earned an Associate Professorship degree in Turkey and have been practicing radiology for more than 15 years. I joined Memorial Sloan Kettering in 2018.
My practice involves the interpretation of imaging studies of the brain, spine, and neck as well as performing neuro-interventional procedures, such as image-guided lumbar punctures and myelography. Working at MSK is rewarding for me as it allows me to collaborate with an outstanding team to improve the lives of the patients we care for.
My research interests include advanced imaging techniques, such as high-resolution MRI, diffusion and perfusion MRI, and molecular imaging of head and neck cancer. I am currently studying the development of faster and higher-resolution MRI techniques. The greatest impact of these new techniques will be seen in those patients who cannot tolerate lengthy procedures, such as young children and patients requiring anesthesia.
I chose oncologic radiology because it is such a rewarding subspecialty that allows me to make a real difference in my patients’ lives. Early detection of cancer is paramount, however, taking care of patients is more than early detection — it also requires seeing with the eyes of the patients. I strongly believe that empathy and enthusiasm are vital components of healthcare quality.
