Maggie Chung, MD, Joins UCSF Radiology Faculty in the Breast Imaging Section

Maggie Chung, MD, Joins UCSF Radiology Faculty in the Breast Imaging Section We are delighted to introduce Maggie Chung, MD, who will join our Breast Imaging section on March 6, 2023.

Dr. Chung was a trainee at UCSF Radiology since 2018, and a member of the Center for Intelligent Imaging (ci2). She joins a strong and growing section with nine full-time faculty and one emeritus faculty on recall, bringing additional depth to our patient care and research teams.

Dr. Chung earned her medical degree at the Warren Alpert Medical School, Brown University, followed by an internship at Scripps Mercy Hospital in San Diego. Dr. Chung completed her diagnostic radiology residency at UCSF, where she was recognized in 2022 with the Elmer Ng Outstanding Resident Award, the Margulis Society Resident Research Award, and the RSNA’s Roentgen Resident/Fellow Research Award. Dr. Chung has served as a clinical fellow in our Breast Imaging section since 2022.

Dr. Chung is a member of the Science and Technology Resource Group pillar in the Center for Intelligent Imaging (ci2). She has served on the UCSF Residency Admission Committee, the Residency Quality Assurance Committee, and was the UCSF representative to the California Radiological Society.

With a strong record of publication, Dr. Chung’s current research focuses on the use of neural networks in imaging. Her projects cover simulated contrast-enhanced breast MRI using convolutional neural network, convolutional neural networks for radiographic detection of surgical sponges, and PET/CT metabolic tumor segmentation using a multi-modality multi-task neural network. Her previous research at UCSF focused on the use of ultrasound for the evaluation of palpable masses in lactating women.

Thank you to section chief Bonnie Joe, MD, PhD, who chaired the Search Committee and to our Academic Affairs unit for their excellent work on recruitment, interviews, and selection for this national search.
