Memorial Sloan Kettering neuroradiologist Daniel Fistere

About Me

I am an evening neuroradiologist who specializes in interpreting urgent care and inpatient imaging of the brain, neck, and spine. My research interests include the development of quantitative imaging techniques that aim to make interpreting studies quicker and easier.

I grew up on a working farm in Maryland, just outside of Washington, DC. I have always been interested in psychology and the inner workings of the human mind. I gained early experience providing therapy to autistic children and became involved in Alzheimer’s research prior to medical school. During my time at MSK, I have been impressed with the emphasis on patient-centered care, teamwork, and forward-thinking principles.

On a personal level, experiences with cancer in my family further highlight the importance of the clinical work and research being done at MSK. I am excited to contribute to the present and future of cancer care.

Most major health insurers offer plans that include MSK as one of their in-network providers. If MSK is in-network, it means all our doctors are too. Medicare and New York State Medicaid also provide benefits for care at MSK.
