Profile

Dr. Sandler is a cardiothoracic radiologist and interprets diagnostic imaging studies for pulmonary and cardiovascular medicine. She is the Co-Director of the Vanderbilt Lung Screening Program and is working to save lives by increasing the number of patients enrolled in lung screening which allows for the detection of early stage lung cancer.

Her research interests include outreach for lung screening, particularly for women and minorities, and improving our ability to differentiate benign and malignant lung nodules with CT imaging. She is also involved in research initiatives to reduce the false positive rate of lung screening examinations by combining low dose CT imaging with blood-based biomarkers, machine learning, and radiomic evaluation of pulmonary nodules.
