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. 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.
