Mark Mamlouk, MD

Volunteer Assistant Clinical Professor
Asst. Clinical Professor - Vol


Mark Mamlouk, MD, is a volunteer assistant clinical professor of neuroradiology at the University of California, San Francisco. Dr. Mamlouk completed his radiology residency at the University of California, Irvine and became board-certified in radiology in 2013. From 2013-2015, he completed a two-year fellowship in neuroradiology at UCSF, where he was chief fellow.

Dr. Mamlouk currently works at Kaiser Permanente in Santa Clara but still maintains a volunteer assistant professor role with UCSF, where he teaches trainees, participates in research studies, leads multi-disciplinary conferences, and practices neuroradiology.

Dr. Mamlouk's research interests include many areas within neuroradiology, including cutaneous vascular anomalies, adult & pediatric head/neck, and spine procedures. He is trained in advanced myelographic techniques and targeted blood patches for spinal CSF leaks and CSF-venous fistulas. Lastly, he is interested in revolutionizing radiology reporting to make it more tailored to specific diseases.
