Physician’s Profile

Richard S. Ha, MD

Department of Radiology
Division of Breast Imaging
Director of Education and Research, Breast Imaging Section
Introduction:

Dr. Ha completed a fellowship in Body and Breast Imaging at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center. His area of active research is in breast MRI, investigating the association between the risk of breast cancer and breast density beyond 2D mammographic interpretation by utilizing 3D breast MRI for analysis of the amount of fibroglandular tissue as well as the degree of background parenchymal enhancement.
