David H. Lewis, MD
Dr. Lewis wanted to be involved in medicine ever since he was a child. "I wanted to help people and be a doctor. This desire was also motivated by the fact that my father died of lung cancer when I was nine years old."
Dr. Lewis is involved in functional brain imaging research, especially of the effects of virtual reality in treatment involving pain.
In his lifetime as a physician, he hopes that more specific radiopharmaceuticals for cancerous disease can be developed to not only image cancer better but also to treat it with the ultimate goal of eradication of cancer.
David H. Lewis, MDDr. Lewis is the leading expert in single-photon emission computed tomography (SPECT) imaging of cerebral vasospasm in the USA and has worked in close conjunction with interventional neuroradiology and neurosurgery to investigate the effects of the treatment of vasospasm on cerebral blood flow.
Patient Care Philosophy:
I believe Nuclear Medicine provides the best molecular imaging answers for patients who have cancer. We also have targeted therapies that help patients and cause minimal side effects. I am proud to be Nuclear Medicine physician.
