Board Certifications

Radiology and Nuclear Medicine

I am a dual board-certified physician in radiology and nuclear medicine with subspecialty training in breast and body imaging. I am committed to providing superb and compassionate care to all my patients.

I consider myself an advocate for individualized medicine in an era where we are moving away from the traditional one-size-fits-all models. At MSK, I am privileged to work with many of the world’s finest oncologists, radiation oncologists, and breast surgeons. I am a member of both the Breast Imaging and Molecular Imaging Services, having primary responsibility in breast imaging.

As a breast imager, I offer interpretation of a wide variety of imaging modalities and breast imaging procedures. My specialization includes interpretation of standard 2D mammogram, 3D mammogram (also known as tomosynthesis), breast ultrasound, and breast MRI. I also specialize in minimally invasive breast procedures from biopsies to needle localizations. I value interacting with my patients and helping them get the care they need. 

As a nuclear medicine physician, I offer interpretion of various PET/CT studies along with general nuclear medicine studies. 

I have previously researched novel techniques in radiation dose reduction and artificial intelligence in breast cancer imaging. I am currently interested in researching novel molecular biomarkers in breast cancer imaging and screening of patients with high risk for breast cancer. I previously volunteered to participate in breast tissue collection for the Komen tissue bank to allow research into the molecular mechanisms of malignant transformation in breast cancer. I am a member of the Society of Breast Imaging, Radiological Society of North America, American College of Radiology, and American Roentgen Ray Society.
