According to the Declaration of Geneva, my duty as a physician is to dedicate my life to the service of humanity and to put the health and well-being of my patients as my first consideration. My goal as a clinical radiologist is to provide excellent and compassionate patient care through careful selection and proper execution of imaging techniques with accurate image interpretation and diagnosis. In addition, through translational research I promote and advance the field of radiology to ultimately help patients with new developments. Lastly, it is also my desire to pass on the medical knowledge and expertise I have acquired to medical trainees from all levels, again promoting the health and well-being of patients now and in the future.

Clinical Interests:

Multimodality body imaging, whole body imaging, molecular imaging, trainee education.

Research Interests:

Whole body imaging, cancer imaging, molecular imaging, artificial Intelligence, dose reduction.
