Deputy Director of Radiology, MSK Monmouth

Memorial Sloan Kettering radiologist Maria LaGratta

About Me

I am a radiologist who specializes in imaging of the chest, abdomen, and pelvis. I have a particular expertise in imaging of cancers and related disorders of the liver, pancreas, and gallbladder and bile ducts (tubes that drain bile from the liver). This includes interpreting ultrasounds, CT scans, MRI scans, and PET scans. These cancers can be some of the most challenging to diagnose and stage, but I embrace that challenge.

I completed all of my medical and radiology specialty training in Manhattan. Following my training, I was a part of care teams made of experts from different areas focused on liver cancer, pancreas cancer, and biliary cancers at Weill Cornell Medicine/NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital for nine years prior to joining MSK’s Manhattan location. I strive to be the most accurate and sensitive at initial detection and staging, as well as detection of recurrences. Sometimes that means spending extra time reviewing a patient’s chart and reviewing images of multiple exams repeatedly, but if that is what it takes, that is what I do.

I am committed to providing excellent and compassionate patient care. Even though I may not meet all the patients for whom I interpret imaging, I treat every exam I interpret as if the patient were a family member. 

During my years at Weill Cornell Medicine/NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital, I served as Director of Clinical Services, Body Imaging, and am continuing my administrative efforts at MSK as Deputy Director of Radiology at MSK Monmouth. In this role, I ensure patients and staff have a satisfying, positive experience with our department while maintaining excellent quality and service.

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.
