Description of Itmat Expertise

My interests are in implementation science, particularly as it relates to the care of patients with cirrhosis or those who have undergone a liver transplant. I also have interests in noninvasive markers and imaging of hepatic fibrosis, steatosis and iron overload, non alcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH) as well as tumors of the liver (benign and malignant).
