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). As one of the pioneers of whole body PET imaging in San Antonio, my colleague and I performed the first whole body PET scan ever performed in this city. We started this as part of a research protocol and then offered this technology for clinical practice. Our work has been recognized in the city and we have trained several radiologists in private practice. This technology is now essential for the majority of cancer patients` staging, treatment response follow up and detection of early recurrence.

I am recognized both locally and nationally for my work and research focused on PET-CT imaging.
