Research

Dr. Sadowski’s research interests are non-invasive, functional MR imaging of gynecological cancers to improve the detection, pre-treatment assessment and post-treatment monitoring of women with gynecological malignancies.Her work has helped generate research funds to support multiple functional MRI research groups, all of which focus on developing techniques for assessing the kidney and gynecological cancers.
