In the UCSF Department of Radiology and Biomedical Imaging, the radiology nursing staff is rich with nursing experience, clinical skills and versatility to manage a wide range of responsibilities.

The Department of Radiology and Biomedical Imaging would like to extend a warm welcome to our talented incoming faculty members. We are proud of their accomplishments and look forward to their future contributions as faculty members to our clinical, educational and research endeavors.
