Ali Aria Razmaria, MD, MSc
Nuclear Medicine Physician
Nuclear Medicine; PET/CT; Novel PET Tracers; Radionuclide Therapies
As a nuclear medicine physician, my specialization is in the medical use of radioisotopes linked to distinct elements and molecules to characterize and treat disease processes in the body, such as cancer. Molecular imaging and therapy is changing the way we think about the detection and treatment of diseases, which is especially beneficial for people with cancer.
My research work is centered around genitourinary diseases and cancers with an emphasis on the diagnosis, imaging, and treatment of prostate cancer in its various stages. Equipped with clinical experience from training in family medicine, urology, and nuclear medicine, my research aims to answer clinical questions that directly translate to improved patient care.
The importance of patient-centered care in cancer treatment is evident to me based on personal experience of losing a family member to an aggressive type of prostate cancer. Since then, the guiding principle for me in practicing medicine has been to put myself in the shoes of patients to fully understand their situation and tailor recommendations accordingly.
