I am a diagnostic radiologist and nuclear medicine physician who specializes in oncologic imaging. I am also experienced in molecular imaging, which uses small amounts of different radioactive materials to diagnose and treat cancer.My experience includes nuclear medicine treatments as well as the interpretation of body CT, MRI, and PET scans. 

Before joining Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, I worked in Mexico’s top academic centers. Currently, I participate in clinical care, teaching, and clinical research at MSKCC. My clinical research focuses on evaluating the patient’s treatment response using CT and PET/CT scans and how these techniques can be improved. 

Additionally, I am part of the Lymphoma Disease Management Team where I work closely with clinical oncologists, radiation oncologists, surgeons and pathologist to provide accurate diagnosis and the best possible care for each patient.
