Welcome to the Department of Radiology
Memorial Sloan Kettering’s radiologists have expertise across many subspecialties, including diagnostic imaging (MRI, CT, PET, SPECT, ultrasound), advanced molecular targeted imaging and therapies, and interventional treatments. Additionally, our team is on the forefront of cancer care, driving guideline updates and developing cutting-edge treatment protocols. Our integrative, multidisciplinary approach includes strong collaboration with our colleagues in the Department of Surgery and the Department of Medicine, allowing for seamless patient care coordination. Highlights of the Department of Radiology include:
- 8 million radiologic images per week
- $50 million in grant funding per year for oncology-focused radiology research
- 400 peer-reviewed published studies in 2021
- Six radiology focused fellowship programs and a nuclear medicine residency program
Theranostics: A Smart Bomb for Cancer
When Dave Norkin was diagnosed at 39 with a rare cancer, he was told he had just months to live. Now, a decade later, he’s surviving — thanks to the emerging field of theranostics, which combines imaging and therapy for a search-and-destroy mission.
Breast conservation and axillary management after primary systemic therapy in patients with early-stage breast cancer: The Lucerne toolbox
Primary systemic therapy is increasingly used in the treatment of patients with early-stage breast cancer, but few guidelines specifically address optimal locoregional therapies.
Contrast-Enhanced Mammography for Screening Women after Breast Conserving Surgery
Breast cancer survivors are at risk for recurrence, and the early detection of recurrence improves survival. Therefore, imaging surveillance is performed for women who have breast-conserving surgery.
Bronchial or Pulmonary Artery Chemoembolization for Unresectable and Unablatable Lung Metastases: A Phase I Clinical Trial
Lung chemoembolization can potentially treat large and multifocal lung metastases, including mediastinal lymph nodes, in patients with limited treatment options (ie, chemorefractory, unresectable, and unablatable).
MSK Radiologists Akin, Gerst and Jochelson named as 2022 ACR Fellows
ACR Fellowship is awarded to members of the College in good standing who have demonstrated service to ACR; evidenced significant accomplishments in scientific or clinical research in the field of radiology; made significant contributions to literature; and/or provided outstanding work as a teacher of radiology.
Percutaneous Lymphatic Embolization as Primary Management of Pelvic and Retroperitoneal Iatrogenic Lymphoceles
To evaluate the efficacy of lymphatic embolization (LE) in decreasing catheter output and dwell time in iatrogenic lymphoceles after percutaneous catheter drainage.
Study of iBreast, a Handheld Device to Detect Breast Abnormalities During Screening Visits for Breast Cancer
This study will test the iBreastExam device to find out whether it can detect a mass or lump in the breast as accurately as a routine breast cancer screening examination.
T1-weighted Dynamic Contrast-enhanced MRI to Differentiate Nonneoplastic and Malignant Vertebral Body Lesions in the Spine
Dynamic contrast agent–enhanced (DCE) perfusion MRI may help differentiate between nonneoplastic and malignant lesions in the spine.
- A Study of Multiparametric MRI and pHLIP® ICG in Breast Cancer Imaging During Surgery
- A Phase I Study of Pembrolizumab Immunotherapy plus Cryoablation for People with Inoperable Mesothelioma
- A Study Assessing Nivolumab Immunotherapy Added to Chemoembolization for Liver Cancer
- A Study Using Tissue Biopsy and PET Scanning to Optimize Thermal Ablation for Colon Cancer Liver Metastases
- A Phase I Study of MEDI1191 plus Durvalumab to Treat Advanced Solid Tumors
- Targeted Silica Nanoparticles for Image-Guided Sentinel Lymph Node Mapping During Surgery in Patients with Melanoma of the Head and Neck
