Diagnostic Radiology

I am a board-certified radiologist with expertise in imaging for hepatobiliary cancers. These include pancreatic cancer, bile duct and gallbladder cancer, and liver cancer. I also have an interest in urologic and gynecologic cancers. I have been at MSK since 2004.

As a member of the Hepatobiliary Disease Management team, I collaborate closely with Memorial Sloan Kettering oncologists and surgeons to plan the best treatment approach for each person we care for. Specifically, I am responsible for presenting and reviewing challenging imaging findings with my hepatobiliary colleagues on a weekly basis. Together, we are able to provide the multidisciplinary approach to patient care and research that MSK emphasizes.

Working at MSK is especially rewarding because of the excellence of the staff at every level and the unparalleled access to state-of-the-art imaging and research. The ability to collaborate with an outstanding team and provide crucial input to patient care on a daily basis is invaluable to me.

In addition to my work with patients, I serve as a collaborative investigator on numerous clinical trials. My research interests focus on hepatic and pancreatic imaging, including MRI and CT. I also participate in new research regarding texture analysis. This involves computer algorithms. These formulas can extract information from imaging that is imperceptible to the human eye. This information may ultimately help doctors better diagnose tumors and select the most-appropriate treatment.

I enjoy being involved in medical education, both through direct interaction with residents and fellows on case interpretation as well as in lectures focused on hepatic tumor imaging and protocols for scan interpretation for research purposes.

At MSK, participating in the practice of excellent cancer care with outstanding colleagues and imaging is not only gratifying but also a privilege. It allows for the deep integration of clinical, genomic, and imaging expertise that our patients deserve.
