- Research Summary
- My research focuses on the clinical, economic and policy implications of new medical technologies. A major focus of my work has been on cancer prevention and control, principally related to breast, lung and colorectal cancer.

Six Mass General radiologists were recently inducted as American College of Radiology fellows, demonstrating a history of service and dedication to patients.
Incorporating coronary CT angiography into the initial evaluation of low-risk patients coming to hospital emergency departments with chest pain appears to reduce the time patients spend in the hospital without incurring additional costs or exposing patients to significant risks.
In General awards and honors
Two Mass General experts talk about what patients need to know when their doctor suggests a CT scan.
The use of CT scanning to evaluate abdominal pain in emergency departments can help physicians arrive at a diagnosis quickly and decisively.
There is no reason to create obtrusive coverage policies that will block access to these lifesaving tools that are truly transforming care for millions of patients.
All MRIs are not created equal: Look for expertise among those administering the exams and among the radiologists reading them.
