Diagnostic Radiology (Ireland)

I am a radiologist who specializes in body imaging and MRI for people with cancer. I focus on interpreting MRIs, CTs, and ultrasounds of the chest, abdomen, and pelvis. Every MSK patient deserves an evaluation tailored to them, and I strive to provide each person with unique care.

As a member of both the Urology and Gynecologic Disease Management Teams, I am dedicated to working closely with patients and their entire care team. This includes oncologists, surgeons, and pathologists. Together, we ensure that the best decisions are made at the time of diagnosis, as well as during treatment and follow-up.

I am committed to clinical research that furthers our medical knowledge so we can constantly provide the most scientifically advanced care for patients, both now and in the future. In addition to my research, as Associate Training Program Director of the MRI Oncologic Imaging Fellowship, I am very involved in medical education. I am responsible for developing future body oncology imagers and innovators. I instruct them in the highest standards, staying true to the level of patient care, knowledge, and expertise available at MSK.
