Treatment Focus

I am a board certified double fellowship-trained radiologist with extensive experience with image guided procedures including regional cancer therapy. My current clinical focus is on the early diagnosis of breast cancer using digital mammography with tomosynthesis, breast MRI, and ultrasound. I specialize in minimally invasive image-guided breast procedures including breast biopsies using stereotactic, ultrasound- and MRI- image guidance, as well as pre-operative image-guided wire localizations.

Treatment Philosophy

I work closely with members of the breast imaging team at Fox Chase Cancer Center to ensure that all women receive the highest quality breast imaging care. I participate in multidisciplinary tumor conferences and collaborate with medical and surgical oncologists, radiation oncologists, and pathologists to optimize the care of all patients with breast cancer.
