Scott Gerst, MD

About Me

I am a radiologist who specializes in body imaging using MRI, CT, and ultrasound. I have a particular interest in hepatobiliary and genitourinary cancers, and I collaborate closely with Memorial Sloan Kettering oncologists and surgeons to best plan the treatment approach for disease management. Together, we provide the multidisciplinary approach to patient care and research that MSK emphasizes.

In addition to performing image interpretation and ultrasound-guided biopsies, I routinely collaborate in clinical research, with an emphasis on imaging evaluation for patients participating in clinical drug trials, as well as evaluating evolving techniques for body MRI and ultrasound. I also regularly participate in teaching doctors who are undergoing specialty training at MSK.

I am a member of the American College of Radiology, the Radiologic Society of North America, Society of Radiologists in Ultrasound, and the American Roentgen Ray Society.

Clinical Trials

As home to one of the world’s top cancer research centers, Memorial Sloan Kettering is typically involved in more than 900 clinical trials at a given time. Currently, clinical trials focused on the conditions I treat are enrolling new patients.

Most major health insurers offer plans that include MSK as one of their in-network providers. If MSK is in-network, it means all our doctors are too. Medicaid and New York State Medicare also provide benefits for care at MSK.
