As member of the Hepatopancreatobiliary Disease Management Team, I collaborate with our gastroenterologists, medical oncologists, and surgical oncologists to optimize clinical management of liver, pancreas, and bile duct tumors. My clinical activities are centered on the use of advanced modalities such as CT, MRI, and PET for the diagnosis, staging, treatment response assessment, and follow-up of people with cancer.

My research interests are centered on hepatobiliary and pancreatic tumors, specifically on developing clinical applications for the latest MRI and PET/CT technology. My ongoing research is translational and includes assessing the role of functional MRI and PET/CT as surrogate markers of tumor heterogeneity and response to treatment in patients with liver metastasis and hepatobiliary and pancreatic cancers.

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. Medicaid and New York State Medicare also provide benefits for care at MSK.
