His research interests are in medical imaging, particularly in areas of multi-detector computed tomography, interventional fluoroscopy, and digital mammography.

Discussion Questions

1. How do you discuss the risks and benefits of imaging with your patients or referring physicians?
2. What information should be communicated to patients about radiation dose?
3. How do you know if your radiation dose is in the right range?
