Research Abstract

Dr. Silverman's research focuses on two areas: Interventional radiologic techniques in the abdomen and the imaging of renal cancers. The purpose of the interventional research is to develop innovative techniques, and evaluate their safety, efficacy and contribution to the diagnosis and treatment of abdominal cancers. Specific generic aspects of image-guided intervention that are evaluated include the process of accurately targeting deep and small tumors both for biopsy and for monitoring and controlling new percutaneous cancer therapies. Research projects are aimed at the design, development, and evaluation of the percutaneous non-surgical ablation of abdominal tumors. Current trials are actively using MRI and PET.CT to guide the percutaneous cryablation of live, kidney, and adrenal gland tumors.

CT, MRI and three-dimensional imaging are utilized in the evaluation of their role in the imaging of renal masses and how best to utilize imaging to differentiate benign from malignant disease in the kidney. This work uses feature description and analysis of image-based features.
