I provide clinical care by interpreting PET/CT scans and a broad variety of conventional nuclear medicine studies that are used for the diagnosis and staging of cancer, as well as to see how treatment has worked. I collaborate closely with medical oncologists, radiation oncologists, and surgeons to provide comprehensive and compassionate care for people with different types of cancer such as breast cancer, lung cancer, and lymphoma.

I trained in both Europe and the United States. My interest in radiology began in medical school. I became fascinated with advanced imaging techniques and their critical role in diagnosing cancer and managing the disease. Later, I was captivated by the molecular approach to imaging and targeted therapies, and molecular oncologic imaging became my main interest. 

I have more than 25 years of experience in the fields of radiology and nuclear medicine, with expertise in molecular oncologic imaging.
