Why I became a doctor/radiologist
I come from a family of two generations of doctors. My two younger brothers and two younger sisters are all physicians. So were my father and maternal grandfather. My father strongly encouraged his children to become doctors. He often felt that there were two professions, Medicine and everything else. I have no regrets over the years of my past career decisions. I believe I chose a profession that allows me to help people and earn a living to support a family at the same time. I also enjoy learning new things on a daily basis. I realize that being a good doctor is the same as being a good student.
Special interests in medicine/radiology
Since my fellowship training almost 20 years ago, musculoskeletal imaging remains my primary interest. In the past few years, there has been a growing role for musculskeletal ultrasound in patient care, and I have been working on getting more and more involved in that area. During my tenure at Windsong, I have also developed a large experience in oncologic imaging and have been fortunate to have had the opportunity to gain expertise in PET/CT scanning. This area has come a long way in a short time period and has the potential to have a much greater impact in future years as newer tracers make their way into the clinical environment. I have recently been excited over the arrival of sodium fluoride PET/CT in the evaluation of metastatic bone disease. This study has the potential to replace the traditional bone scan.
