Board Certifications

Radiology; Neuroradiology

I am a board-certified clinical and research neuroradiologist with a special interest in the use of advanced magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) of brain tumors. As Chief of the Neuroradiology Service, I oversee clinical imaging as well as research studies of the brain, spine, and neck.

I direct the functional MRI (fMRI) laboratory, which provides pre-operative planning for patients with brain tumors. We use fMRI and another technique called diffusion MRI to identify important areas of the brain, such as those that control language or motor function, in patients with brain tumors. The ability to identify these vital areas before and during surgery allows a neurosurgeon or radiation therapist to operate on or treat only the tumor, thereby avoiding surrounding brain tissue that is critical for important functions such as speech and movement.

I am a member of Memorial Sloan Kettering’s Brain Tumor Center. I also am the founding President of the American Society of Functional Neuroradiology and have served as President of the Eastern Neuroradiological Society. I am on the editorial board of the American Journal of Neuroradiology and hold an honorary doctorate from the Russian Academy of Medical Science.
