About Me

I am a radiologist who specializes in body imaging. My expertise is in imaging for liver cancer, bile duct cancer, and pancreatic cancer. I help oncologists make the best decisions possible for treating hepatopancreatobiliary cancers. From diagnosis and staging to treatment response, I am committed to delivering accurate and actionable reports for the care of people with cancer. While I have been practicing at MSK for nearly a decade, my goal is to continuously improve diagnosis and treatment through active research.

My research interests are in advanced CT and MRI techniques for hepatopancreatobiliary tumors. I also work with computer scientists to investigate the potential of computer-based medical image analysis. This approach, also known as radiomics, 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.

I am active in the American College of Radiology. Together with other radiologists, I am developing new guidelines for treatment response assessment for hepatocellular carcinoma and other liver tumors. I frequently lecture on hepatopancreatobiliary tumors at meetings for the Radiological Society of North America and the International Society for Magnetic Resonance in Medicine. Finally, as MRI Safety Officer at MSK, I lead a team of doctors, nurses, managers, and radiology technologists to ensure the complete safety of people with cancer and staff members in the MRI environment.

Clinical Trials

Research is integral to our mission at Memorial Sloan Kettering, and clinical trials help us discover better forms of patient care and treatment. For you, this could mean access to a new therapy or therapy combination. Click to see a list of the trials I’m currently leading.


Most major health insurers offer plans that include MSK as one of their in-network providers. If MSK is in-network, it means all our doctors are too. Medicare and New York State Medicaid also provide benefits for care at MSK.
