Her focus is Nuclear Medicine, specifically Positron Emission Tomography (PET), which accurately evaluates and locates cancer, helps direct successful treatment planning and closely follows the response of tumors to therapy. She was one of the first physicians in Florida to be trained at Duke University in Clinical PET, and was one of the first to introduce this vital technology in Florida.
