I have a unique career in radiology. I had dual radiology training in Korea and in the United States. I served as faculty member for many years at both Cornell and Asan Medical Center which is the largest and the best institution in Korea, For almost 30 years my practice, education, and research has been focued in body image, particularly hepatobiliary-pancreas image.
