Clinical Associate Professor, Radiology
BioI am an interventional radiologist with a particular interest in interventional oncology. I perform a wide range of procedures including ablations of the lung, liver, kidney, bone, and other areas in the body, chemoembolization, embolization, and radioembolization of tumors, biopsies, drainages, and interventions on both the venous and arterial sides. I was the first physician to perform SIR-spheres radioembolization for metastatic tumors to the liver within the VA hospital system, and have been recognized for my teaching of trainees. I am currently the Director of Interventional Radiology and Associate Chief of Radiology at the VA Palo Alto Health Care System. My research focuses on HCC and Lung cancer, including the application of Machine Learning/AI and Radiogenomics to lung cancer identification, and improving tools to treat liver cancer. I also work on Quality in Medicine as the Councilor of the Quality and Performance Improvement Division for the Society of Interventional Radiology where we work to define quality measures, gather data via a national IR registry, and develop practice improvement tools. In this role, I have led the development and launch of the VIRTEX Registry which is the primary clinical data registry for the field of Interventional Radiology.

Current Research and Scholarly InterestsGU and Gyn clinical imaging
Assistant Professor of Radiology (Body MRI)
Current Research and Scholarly InterestsMy interests are in the development and translation of imaging technologies geared toward disease detection and characterization to better guide prognosis, treatment, and improve outcomes. I’m interested in supporting the development of MRI guided focal therapy methods which can personalize treatment and reduce the risk of morbidity from more invasive therapies.
- MRI for diagnosis of pelvic floor disorders
- MRI and PET/MRI to pelvic malignancies and lymph node staging.
- Whole Body MRI
- MRI guided procedures including biopsies, cryoablation, and high intensity focused ultrasound.
Translational Research Interests
- Development and translation of magnetic resonance imaging technologies to improve both diagnostics and therapeutics
- Molecular imaging and characterization of the tumor microenvironment
- Ultrashort echo time MRI applications in the body
- Developing synergistic MRI methods to complement PET in potential applications for PET/MRI
