Biography

Priyanka Jha, MBBS, is an Assistant Professor of Clinical Radiology in the Abdominal Imaging and Ultrasound section at the University of California, San Francisco. She obtained her medical degree from Mulana Azad Medical College, Delhi, India in 2007. In 2010, she finished a one-year internship from St. Vincents Medical Center in Bridgeport, Conneticut, and she completed her four-year Diagnostic Radiology residency from the University of California, Davis in 2014, followed by an abdominal imaging fellowship from UCSF in 2015.

Dr. Jha has experience in cross­sectional imaging, both CT and MRI, ultrasound, fluoroscopic and radiographic procedures. Her research interests include onclogic imaging, focusing on imaging of hepatocellular carcinoma and pancreatic malignancies. She is also interested in women’s imaging, particularly MR applications of pelvic imaging and obstetric imaging.

Dr. Jha serves as a reviewer for Radiology and European Radiology. She has active memberships to the Radiological Society of North America, the American Roentgen Ray Society, and the Society of Abdominal Radiology. She has been invited to 5 national and international lectures and presentations, and has written over 50 publications, which include book chapters, journal articles, and abstracts.
