Dr. Vitiello completed her Fellowship in Breast Imaging at Yale University Medical Center, where she received the Yale Department of Radiology Fellow of the Year Award in 2000. She served as Chief Resident during her residency in Diagnostic Radiology at Beth Israel Medical Center in Manhattan. Dr. Vitiello has lectured to a wide variety of audiences on topics related to the early detection of breast cancer, and has authored a chapter on Breast Ultrasound for a well-known text, Roses’ Breast Cancer. She is a member of many professional societies, including the Society of Breast Imaging and the American Society of Breast Diseases.
Her years of clinical experience have honed her expertise in breast MRI, mammography, breast ultrasound, and minimally-invasive needle biopsies, which she now brings to Montclair Breast Center. Experiences with her patients and their families have resulted in her passionate advocacy for high-quality, individualized screening for all women. She is currently building a website and blog, “What Smart Women Need to Know About Breast Cancer” to share crucial information with a wider audience, and to give women the tools they need to navigate an often confusing, contradictory and impersonal “healthcare system.”
Dr. Vitiello grew up in Harrington Park, NJ and attended high school at Northern Valley Regional High School in Old Tappan. She then completed her undergraduate studies at Georgetown University, graduating with honors, and returned to New Jersey to attend medical school at UMDNJ- Robert Wood Johnson Medical School. Dr. Vitiello and her husband are raising their two daughters, ages 7 and 10, in the city of Hoboken.
