About Me

As an interventional radiologist, my expertise is in minimally invasive procedures performed using radiologic guidance using the most current technology and devices in a variety of organ systems. Areas of particular clinical interest include minimally invasive cancer treatment of tumors in the liver, kidney, and bone (including osteoid osteoma) using interventional techniques such as embolization, radioembolization, and drug-eluting beads, as well as thermal ablative techniques including radiofrequency ablation, microwave ablation, and cryoablation. Additional areas of interest include endovascular interventions of venous pathology (including central venous occlusions and hemodialysis access), percutaneous enteral nutrition, particularly in patients with complex anatomy and needs -- including percutaneous jejunal feeding tubes), and vascular imaging using MR angiography and CT angiography.

Clinical Focus and Research

My Research Interests

My research focuses on the development of new, minimally invasive therapies that utilize imaging guidance.

I am involved in both pre-clinical and clinical research on many of the procedures performed in interventional radiology.
