Vesselin (Vesco) Zdravkov Miloushev, MD, PhD

About Me

I am a neuroradiologist specializing in the interpretation of CT and MRI images of the brain, head and neck, and spine.

My current research is focused on applying a new method in MRI, called hyperpolarization, for imaging of the central nervous system. As brain tumors undergo treatment, it is often difficult to differentiate between active tumor and changes in the brain resulting from the treatment itself. By applying this new non-invasive technology, my colleagues and I are able to safely image the abnormal tumor metabolism in the brain and tell the difference between treatment-related changes and recurrent cancer. This information holds promise to revolutionize many areas of imaging and optimize care of our patients. I am honored to be a part of a collaborative research and clinical environment in the Department of Radiology at Memorial Sloan Kettering.

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.
