After a residency in Internal Medicine at Cornell-New York Presbyterian Hospital, she completed a Cardiology fellowship at the University of California, San Francisco, with a focus on echocardiography and nuclear cardiology. She then completed an advanced imaging fellowship in cardiac CT and MR at the Massachusetts General Hospital. She stayed on at MGH as research faculty in the Cardiac MR PET CT program, and is the Director of Education of the MGH Cardiovascular Imaging Core Lab. She is attending staff of Cardiac Unit Associates and holds a secondary appointment in the Department of Radiology. Clinically, she serves as a preceptor in the Paul Dudley White fellow's clinic, interprets cardiac CT scans, and provides weekend coverage for Non-Invasive Cardiology. Her NIH funded clinical research focus includes studies on the use of cardiac CT in ischemic heart disease and heart failure.

Cardiac CT makes strong predictions of major heart trouble

Cardiac CT gives emergency physicians the ability to predict major adverse cardiac events (MACE) in patients presenting with chest pain, according to a study published in the May issue of the Journal of the American College of Cardiology.

Evolution of Coronary Computed Tomography Radiation Dose Reduction at a Tertiary Referral Center

A large study to be published in the August issue of the American Journal of Medicine reports a record radiation dose reduction of 74.8% to MGH Cardiac CT patients during the past 6 years.

CT angiography speeds emergency diagnosis of heart disease in low-risk 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.
