I am a nuclear medicine physician and Chief of the Molecular Imaging and Therapy Service in the Department of Radiology. I have special expertise in oncologic imaging (in particular using PET/CT), as well as cardiac imaging and nuclear medicine therapies. I am an active member of several national and international imaging societies, including the Society of Nuclear Medicine and Molecular Imaging and the Radiological Society of North America, for which I organize and participate in regular educational lecture series. As a member of the imaging and lymphoma committees of the Alliance for Clinical Trials in Oncology, I organize and participate as an expert reader in national multicenter trials. I serve as a reviewer for a variety of imaging and oncology journals. Besides my clinical work, I am interested in how the medical industry is changing and the future of healthcare.

I am actively involved in clinical research. My current research interests include: assessing the role of PET/CT imaging in the management of cancer patients, in particular patients with lymphoma or cancers of the head and neck; the introduction and clinical evaluation of new PET radiotracers in oncology; the role of PET/CT imaging in radiotherapy planning and response assessment; and the development and evaluation of new techniques for motion control and quantification, which may aid in the detection, treatment planning, and response assessment of various cancers.

I am a member of the disease management teams for lymphoma and head and neck cancer at MSKCC.
