Clinical Assistant Professor, Radiology
Bio I 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 perform research in areas of the application of big data to medicine as well as treatment of lung and liver cancers.

Current Research and Scholarly Interests Studies include development and preliminary clinical evaluation of advanced techniques for ultrasonic imaging and tissue characterization. A number of studies are ongoing involving advanced techniques of magnetic resonance imaging and spectroscopy with application to the GU tract.

Current Research and Scholarly Interests My interest is in improving prostate cancer diagnosis through MRI and image-targeted prostate biopsy. In collaboration with radiologists at Stanford, we are working to define the optimal role of MRI in prostate cancer. We hope to improve cancer imaging to the point that some men with elevated PSA may safely avoid prostate biopsy. For those who need biopsy, we are evaluating novel MRI-US fusion targeted biopsy, a technique that greatly improves upon the conventional biopsy method.
