Eric Lis, MD

About Me

I am a neuroradiologist and Director of Interventional Neuroradiology at Memorial Sloan Kettering. I have special expertise in the imaging of pediatric tumors of the brain, spine, and neck. I also have strong interest in the imaging of spinal disease, with a particular expertise in computed tomography-guided biopsies of the spine. My neurosurgical colleagues and I are currently involved in the introduction of intraoperative magnetic resonance imaging.

My research focuses on MRI of the bone marrow utilizing advanced techniques, such as diffusion-weighted imaging, in patients with prostate cancer and leukemia.
