Dimitrios Mitsouras, PhD

Professor In Residence


Dr. Mitsouras is Professor of Radiology and Biomedical Imaging at UCSF and Medical Physicist at the San Francisco Veterans Affairs Medical Center (SFVAMC). He is Chair of the MR Safety Committee at the SFVAMC, and Director of the Translation Radiology and Surgical Technologies (TRST) 3D lab, which provide 3D Radiology services throughout the Veterans Affairs Sierra Pacific Network (VISN 21). Dr. Mitsouras has previously held faculty appointments in the Department of Radiology at Harvard Medical School (2004-2017), and the Faculty of Medicine at the University of Ottawa, Canada (2017-2019), and has served as Director of the Applied Imaging Science Lab in the Department of Radiology at Brigham and Women’s Hospital, Boston, MA, and as Associate Editor of the International Journal of Cardiovascular Imaging and 3D Printing In Medicine journals.

Dr. Mitsouras' research focuses on leveraging physics, applied mathematics and computer science to develop medical imaging technologies to improve the care of patients with cardiovascular diseases. He is a recipient of a Career Development Award from the National Institutes of Health, a Magna Cum Laude Award from the Radiological Society of North America (RSNA), and a VA Merit Award. He has published >100 peer-reviewed articles and 7 book chapters (h-index 32, NIH Relative Citation Ratio (https://icite.od.nih.gov) of >2/>75th percentile of all NIH-funded publications).

His research is presently focused on advancing the care of patients with coronary artery disease (CAD) based on the discovery of patient-specific hemodynamic information embedded in contrast enhancement patterns induced by contrast kinetics in standard, non-invasive CT angiography images. Results from this NIH-funded work were featured on the April 2018 cover of the journal Radiology (Fractional Flow Reserve Estimated at Coronary CT Angiography in Intermediate Lesions. Radiology 2018;287(1):76-84), and his technique was subsequently implemented into a multi-national company’s CT-FFR product that was validated in a large multi-center trial. In addition, Dr. Mitsouras continues to develop advanced MRI techniques for the surveillance and prognosis of vascular diseases including abdominal aortic aneurysms (AAA) and peripheral arterial disease (PAD).

Dr. Mitsouras’ educational efforts include co-/development of 7 CME courses for the RSNA on Clinical 3D Printing (2014-2018), Computational Fluid Dynamics (2016-2017) and Artificial Intelligence (2018) that have been attended by more than 1000 clinicians and clinical and science trainees to date, and serving as a lecturer at the UCSF Master's Degree in Biomedical Imaging. He regularly contributes educational articles in Radiographics, including the landmark paper on medical 3D printing that is now one of the top 4 most-cited articles in Radiographics. Since 2015, Dr. Mitsouras’ trainees have received 5 Research Awards from the RSNA, a Young Investigator Award from the European Society of Cardiology (ESC), and a Young Investigator Award from the Society of Cardiovascular Computed Tomography (SCCT).
