Research Interest for Referring Providers
My predominant research interests are in optimizing screening mammography, particularly through the use of CAD (computer aided detection) and through evaluation of utilization guidelines. I participate in the ISPY 2 trial, an NCI and ACRIN sponsored trial for patients with advanced breast cancer where we utilize breast MRI to evaluate response to neoadjuvent chemotherapy.
