Radiology Research:

MRI findings after cryoablation of renal cell carcinomas at various follow-up intervals. Currently involved in developing protocols and we are in the data collection phase for a research paper looking at the progression of the ice ball and tumor recurrence post ablation.

Cardiac CTA and EKG gated aortic studies. I have helped develop and oversee the cardiac CT program at my institution. I have done original research in the role of EKG gating aortic studies (see RSNA poster below)

Volunteer Service and Leadership

Volunteer Teacher-Every Monday during the school year I’ve taught a class at the local school. The goal of this program is to excite interest about radiology. (September 2001-present)

International Health Care Volunteer-I was part of a medical mission to Ghana, Africa and was given an award for outstanding service by the government and was featured on local television. Our mission was to help train local physicians on surgical techniques. (Sept 1999)
