I interpret screening and diagnostic mammography, breast ultrasound, and breast MRI in both early detection and staging of breast cancer. I perform minimally invasive percutaneous breast biopsy under ultrasound, stereotactic, and MR guidance. In addition, I interpret body CT and ultrasound for extent of disease, treatment follow up, and assessment of clinical problems.  I work closely with colleagues in surgery, medical oncology, and radiation oncology as part of a multidisciplinary approach to the treatment of cancer.  I participate in several clinical trials evaluating novel treatment approaches for breast and gynecologic cancers.
