I am board certified in radiology from India (DMRD, DNB) and USA (DABR). The overarching theme of my academic career has been the application of innovative multimodality imaging methods for cardiothoracic, emergency, and cancer imaging to enhance patient care. My clinical activities include the entire spectrum of cardiothoracic examinations, notably conventional radiology, CT, and MR imaging of emergency, oncologic and ILD related chest radiology and cardiac radiology. I am also involved in teaching and mentoring many medical students, radiology residents, and fellows in numerous scientific projects. I do presentations on regular basis to teach medical students, radiology residents, and fellows. I am actively involved in research and do many presentations in various national and international radiology conferences.
I frequently interact with clinicians, pulmonologists, cardiologists, and cardiothoracic surgeons in critical cases, treatment planning, and patient care. As a cardiothoracic radiologist I provide my expert opinion for Interstitial lung disease committee; wherein the radiological features of each case are presented and discussed with regard to preoperative planning, differential diagnostic considerations, and pathologic correlation. I constantly work to increase efficiency of the Radiology department in dictating reports and improving templates (CT, US, and MRI) related to cardiothoracic imaging. I work to maintain image quality and safety of patients undergoing Cardiac CT and MR studies.
