Assistant Professor
Asst Prof of Clin Radiology


Eugene Huo, MD, is Assistant Professor of Clinical Radiology in the Department of Radiology and Biomedical Imaging at the San Francisco Veterans Affairs Medical Center. He received his medical degree at Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine in Chicago, Illinois, and he completed his one-year internship at Evanston Northwestern Healthcare, Evanston, Illinois. Dr. Huo completed his four-year diagnostic radiology residency at McGaw Medical Center of Northwestern University in Chicago, Illinois, where he also finished a vascular and interventional radiology fellowship. This was followed by an additional fellowship in abdominal imaging at UCSF.

Prior to joining the UCSF Department of Radiology, Dr. Huo was an assistant professor of interventional radiology at the University of Utah/Huntsman Cancer Institute and George E. Wahlen Department of Veterans Affairs Medical Center. He remains an adjunct assistant professor in the Department of Pharmaceutics and Pharmaceutical Chemistry at the University of Utah.
