Diagnostic Radiology

I am a board-certified radiologist who specializes in sarcomas and retroperitoneal tumors, orthopedic imaging, and urologic imaging. I have been practicing radiology at MSK since 2000.

I serve on the Gastric and Mixed Tumor Service Disease Management Team. I have a particular interest in retroperitoneal and soft tissue tumors. These include retroperitoneal liposarcomas, gastrointestinal stromal tumors, myxofibrosarcomas, and desmoid tumors. Since MSK is a leader in treating sarcomas and other soft tissue tumors, I have become very familiar with many of these rare tumors.

I have participated in research projects to study these tumors and am an investigator in many related clinical trials. I am a member of the medical advisory board for the Desmoid Tumor Research Foundation. I am also the national study chair for imaging in an organization that is overseeing a phase III clinical trial of sorafenib (Nexavar®) in people with desmoid tumors.

I also have years of expertise in bone, renal, and adrenal tumors. I am a member of the Orthopedic and Urologic Disease Management Teams.

At MSK, I enjoy working with renowned surgeons and medical oncologists. I appreciate presenting cases at disease management team meetings and consulting with these doctors on CT and MRI examinations for our patients.
