Diagnostic Radiology

As an interventional radiologist, I perform minimally invasive procedures using needles and catheters, providing an alternative to surgery for many patients. I can guide a needle or a catheter toward a tumor using CT, ultrasound, or x-ray, then burn or freeze the tumor (ablation), block its blood supply (embolization), or implant microscopic radioactive particles to treat it (radioembolization). These procedures can be used to treat cancer in the lung, liver, and kidney. I can also reopen blood vessels that are blocked or narrowed by a blood clot or a tumor using minimally invasive techniques that are performed through a catheter.

I have done thousands of image-guided procedures and use a multidisciplinary clinical approach, which involves coordinating care with surgeons, oncologists, and other specialists to decide the best treatment strategy for each patient. I teach other doctors how to perform these procedures at national meetings, and I am a reviewer for several medical journals.

My research focuses on developing new minimally invasive methods for treating liver, pancreatic, and kidney cancer.  We have some promising results in the laboratory on how to improve the safety and efficacy of tumor embolization and ablation, which we plan to translate into human clinical trials in the next few years
