Patient Care Philosophy
As a radiologist and nuclear medicine specialist, I care for patients face-to-face during their visits to our UW nuclear medicine clinics and indirectly when reviewing complex sets of images for their healthcare providers. I place special emphasis in explaining radioactive treatments and scan findings to patients in clear and simple terms. In reviewing hybrid imaging studies (PET/CT and SPECT/CT), I spare no effort at finding every piece of information that can contribute to a better understanding of a patient's illness, and I integrate all information in comprehensive imaging reports issued to the referring physicians.
Cooking, bicycling, traveling, mentoring students and photography.
Cancer imaging; integrating multiple imaging studies for improved evaluation of patients; PET/CT (Positron Emission Tomography/Computed Tomography), SPECT/CT (Single Photon Emission Computed Tomography/ Computed Tomography); clinical research in new applications of hybrid imaging.
Hybrid imaging applications; optimization of image display tools and of approach to image interpretation; teaching hybrid image interpretation; lung function evaluation with imaging.
