Clinical Responsibilities

Chest CT is frequently performed on patients receiving medical care at New York University. The thoracic imaging division works closely with pulmonary physicians, oncologists, and surgeons providing care to patients with a range of chest diseases. Dr. Ko is a fellowship-trained thoracic radiologist whose clinical activities include the interpretation of chest radiographs and computed tomography (CT). Services provided include high-resolution CT for evaluation of interstitial lung disease and a range of chest diseases. Clinical areas of interest include multi-detector CT for the evaluation of the pulmonary nodule, pulmonary malignancies, interstitial lung disease, and vascular disease including thromboembolic disease. She is active in the education of residents, fellows, and medical students from radiology and other medical specialties.

Research Summary

Research interests have centered on the use of thin-section CT and development of computer techniques to evaluate for, characterize and follow up small pulmonary nodules. Small pulmonary nodules are difficult to detect given their size, and research has addressed the influence of computer aided diagnosis and image compression on nodule detection. Additionally, small pulmonary nodules are not easily characterized in terms of benign or malignant potential by other modalities such as lung biopsy or PET, secondary to size constraints. Current methods for assessing these nodules may be improved by the application of computer methods, such as volume and growth analysis. Technology that enables registration of two CT studies of a patient performed at different times has been investigated and may facilitate the comparison of multiple CT studies in patients with multiple nodules. Dr. Ko enjoys involving residents and medical students on her research projects.
