No Patient Satisfaction Reviews
Why not?

There is no publicly available rating for this medical professional for one of the following reasons:

  1. He or she is not employed by Penn Medicine.
  2. He or she does not see patients in a medical practice setting.
  3. He or she sees patients but has not yet received the minimum 30 patient satisfaction reviews in the past 12 months, ensuring that the rating is statistically reliable and a true reflection of patient satisfaction.

Description of Research Expertise:

My research interest consists of in vivo acquisition and quantification strategies focused on the study of brain metabolites in humans (in disease state such as Epilepsy, Schizophrenia and in acute drug studies) by MR spectroscopy and CEST MRI. I have been the lead MR physicist for several clinical research projects involving the spectroscopic and CEST acquisitions as well as analysis of the data acquired from 7T Siemens MRI scanner. In future I would like to use the experience I have gained on these newly developed MRI contrast techniques along with MR spectroscopy to study the metabolism and to capture the early detection and therapeutic monitoring of neurological disorders.
