Research Responsibilities

Co-investigator in several Breast Cancer related research projects:

1. i) To Determine sensitivity and specificity of Magnetic Resonance Spectroscopy in the context of breast cancer.

ii) Determine additional scan time and additional cost burden due to clinical utilization of MRI

2. Sestamibi Mammography and MRI did not parallel each other in their diagnostic sensitivities but that

the two approaches combined, significantly improve diagnostic sensitivity to diagnose breast Cancer,

over each separate modality

3. To develop a mathematical model and procedure using Elastomammography for differentiating between benign and malignant breast masses that has a high sensitivity, specificity, and positive predictive value, we will be able to reduce the number of biopsies that are performed. Currently, about 80% of biopsies return a negative result. Any technique that can significantly improve this result will have significant clinical value

4. Role of Micro-CT in assessing completeness of lumpectomy margins

1. On a daily routine, teach the nuances of Mammography to radiology residents from SUNY Upstate
