My name is Margaret M. Szabunio; I completed medical school at Drexel University College of Medicine (formerly Hahnemann University Medical School) in Philadelphia, followed by a radiology residency and fellowship at Long Island Jewish Medical Center in New York.

My clinical goal is early detection of breast cancer using new and emerging technologies, including elastography and tomosynthesis. I am board certified by the American Board of Radiology.
