Personal profile

Research Interests

My primary clinical interest is the field of Thoracic Imaging. Within the field, imaging of lung cancer and imaging of pulmonary embolism are particular interests. My primary research interest at this time is lung cancer screening. I am one of the Investigators for the National Lung Screening Trial (NLST), an ongoing multi-institutional trial funded by the National Cancer Institute (NCI) to try to determine if lung cancer screening decreases lung cancer mortality. For more information on NLST, see
