I am a radiologist who specializes in body imaging. My role in the multidisciplinary care of patients at Memorial Sloan Kettering involves diagnosis, staging, and follow-up.
In addition to my clinical and teaching responsibilities, I have a particular interest in research on gynecologic malignancies and participate in the Gynecologic Disease Management Team.
