What brought you to oncology?

I always wanted to be a surgeon, but when I was doing clinical rounds in medical school, I realized I was more interested in the cases where we hadn’t yet determined a diagnosis. I figured out that I wanted to help with discovering this information rather than focus on interventions.

We correlate the information we see in the imaging with everything available within the patient chart, including lab results, and put the pieces of the puzzle together to figure out what’s going on.

What do you value about your work?

I’m very interested in research, with my main area of focus on liver MRIs. Many conditions within the liver currently require a biopsy, which is an invasive procedure that can be painful and expensive. With an MRI, you can get a lot of information, so I’m focused on further developing techniques that can provide noninvasive diagnosis of liver diseases.

Provider Background

Specialty: Radiology

Area of clinical practice


I am a physician who sees patients at the South Lake Union Clinic and UW Medical Center – Montlake.

I mainly review imaging related to liver and rectal cancers. I am also the director of the UW OncoRad service, which provides imaging assessments of tumor response for patients on oncology clinical trials. The OncoRad service is available to UW investigators and members of the Fred Hutch/University of Washington/Seattle Children’s Cancer Consortium. We make specific measurements to see if tumors are responding to medications that are currently being tested.
