About Me

What I Do at MSK
  • Director, Research, Body Imaging Service and Director, Hepatobiliary Radiology
Get To Know Me

I am a radiologist who specializes in body imaging, with expertise in imaging for liver cancerbile duct cancer, and pancreatic cancer. I help oncologists make the best decisions possible for treating people with these hepatopancreatobiliary (HPB) cancers.

From diagnosis and staging to treatment response, I am committed to delivering accurate and actionable reports for the care of people with cancer. I have practiced at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center (MSK) for more than a decade, and my goal is to continuously improve the diagnosis and treatment of cancer through active research.

My research interests include advanced computed tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) techniques for HPB tumors. I also work with computer scientists to investigate the potential applications of computer-based medical image analysis and text analysis in this area. Computer-based image analysis lets us look at medical images beyond what the human eye can see. Medical images contain a vast amount of hidden data. We are harnessing this big data to predict tumor pathology, genetics, and response to treatment. With computer-based text analysis (also called natural language processing), we can identify trends in disease patterns and response from thousands of patients at a time. These analyses provide insight into how cancers metastasize over time.

In addition to research, I am active in the American College of Radiology. Together with other radiologists, I have developed new guidelines for treatment response assessment for hepatocellular carcinoma and other liver tumors. I frequently lecture on HPB tumors at meetings for the Radiological Society of North America and the Society of Abdominal Radiology. Finally, as Chair of the MSK Radiology Reporting Committee, I lead a team of radiologists to ensure that our clinical reports are as clear as possible so that our patients and clinicians can make the best treatment decisions.

My Role at MSK

A radiologist is a doctor with special training in using imaging to diagnose and treat disease. Imaging includes X-rays, computed tomography (CT), and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI).
