I am dual board certified in Nuclear Medicine and in Diagnostic Radiology. My area of interest is Nuclear Oncology and Molecular Imaging with focus on Positron Emission Tomography - Computerized Tomography (PET-CT).

I am very interested in Theranostics, a new field of medicine which is based on the combination of using one radioactive tracer to diagnose and a second radioactive drug to deliver therapy to treat certain types of tumors. I am working to set up the Theranostics program at the Mays Cancer Center which would be the first of its kind in the community, outside of the military hospital that can provide personalized therapy with precision medicine approach using radioactive drugs.
