Patient Care Philosophy
I enjoy helping patients to manage their optimal health status through non-invasive diagnosis using high-tech imaging methods. I especially like challenging cases when advanced imaging techniques can be applied to reveal an elusive medical condition at a stage where it can then be effectively treated and potentially cured.
Photography, travel, power walking, opera, Broadway shows.
Research into the application of new MR imaging techniques to aid in diagnosis of central nervous system (CNS) pathology; application of these MRI techniques to patients with multiple sclerosis, brain tumors, peripheral nerve disease; application of functional brain imaging (fMRI) techniques to optimize pre-treatment planning.
Development of new technical applications of MR imaging for use in patient diagnosis; development, testing and safety of MR contrast agents; basic neuroscience of brain function using fMRI techniques; MR imaging of developmental diseases to gain new insights into brain development and function.
