About Me

I am a board-certified radiologist with expertise in breast imaging and specialty training in nuclear medicine. I have practiced at MSK Basking Ridge since it opened in 2006. I also regularly practice at MSK’s Manhattan location.

I interpret all types of screening and diagnostic breast imaging. This includes digital mammography, ultrasound, and MRI. I am certified in interpreting digital breast tomosynthesis (3-D imaging). I do many image-guided breast interventional procedures. These include stereotactic, ultrasound-guided, and MRI-guided biopsies. I perform radioactive seed and wire localizations before surgery. My collaborative research focuses on imaging methods for people with breast cancer.

I also have special expertise in body imaging, especially the use of PET/CT. I routinely interpret PET/CT exams in conjunction with CT scans and radiographs. In addition, I interpret radiologic studies performed on people enrolled in phase I and phase II clinical trials.

I am a member of the Breast Disease Management Team at MSK Basking Ridge. I consult with surgeons, medical oncologists, radiation oncologists, and pathologists to evaluate and manage breast disease. I also participate in a weekly multidisciplinary tumor conference in Basking Ridge. By working together and combining our expertise, my colleagues and I can provide high-quality, comprehensive care to our patients.

At MSK’s Manhattan location, I am involved in medical education. At MSK Basking Ridge, I teach premedical college students. I have worked with community educational outreach programs and have been invited to speak in New Jersey about breast cancer and early detection.

MSK Basking Ridge is a state-of-the-art facility with an outstanding team of doctors and radiology experts. We are committed to delivering the best cancer care to our patients in a warm and personal environment.
