Biography

Javier Villanueva­-Meyer, MD, is an Assistant Professor of Clinical Radiology in the Neuroradiology subspecialty section in the Department of Radiology and Biomedical Imaging at the University of California, San Francisco. He received his medical degree from Baylor College of Medicine in Houston, Texas, and he completed his one-year internship at Virginia Tech Carilion School of Medicine in Roanoke. Dr. Villanueva-­Meyer completed his four-year diagnostic radiology residency at the UCSF, followed by a Neuroradiology fellowship at UCSF. He also completed a NIH T32 post-doctoral fellowship in the UCSF Department of Radiology and Biomedical Imaging.

Dr. Villanueva-Meyer’s interests focus on advanced MR imaging and imaging based tools to better delineate and characterize brain tumors. His research also involves molecular imaging where he works with collaborators within and outside of our department to develop and implement the use of PET radiotracers in both brain tumors and spinal infection.

Dr. Villanueva­-Meyer has experience in CT, MRI and plain film radiography of the brain, head and neck, spine, and peripheral nervous system in both the inpatient and outpatient settings. As well as diagnostic and therapeutic neuroradiology procedures, including percutaneous biopsy, lumbar puncture, myelography, cisternography, epidural and selective nerve root injection.
