American Board of Radiology Appoints New Trustee for Interventional Radiology

The American Board of Radiology (ABR) has appointed Anne M. Covey, MD, FSIR, to its Board of Trustees, effective October 23, 2017. Dr. Covey will replace Jeanne M. LaBerge, MD, as one of the ABR’s three trustees for interventional radiology.
Dr. Covey is currently an interventional radiologist at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center and professor of radiology for Weill Cornell Medical College, both in New York City. For the past six years, she has been named a Top Doctor in the New York metro area by Castle Connolly. She volunteers for the ABR as an examiner and serves as an assistant editor of the American Journal of Roentgenology.
ABR-certified in both diagnostic and vascular and interventional radiology, Dr. Covey is a graduate of New York’s Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons. She completed her internship, residency and fellowship at Yale-New Haven Hospital in Connecticut.
Dr. Covey has clinical expertise in minimally-invasive procedures and is known locally and nationally for her research into diseases of the liver. Her clinical and research interests include arterially directed therapies and ablation to treat liver tumors and biliary interventions. Palliation of symptoms related to cancer is also an important part of her practice. She has worked closely with the National Comprehensive Cancer Network to develop consensus guidelines for imaging and locoregional treatment of liver tumors.
Dr. Covey is a fellow of the Society of Interventional Radiology (SIR) and the author of numerous publications and presentations.
