My current research focuses on the assessment of lung cancers with specific genetic mutations using CT, on lung cancer screening, and on the use of CT to assess body composition in cancer patients. I am also actively involved in the interpretation of radiologic studies from patients enrolled in clinical trials to monitor treatment response.
