Biography

Maureen P. Kohi, MD, is an Associate Professor of Clinical Radiology in the Vascular and Interventional Radiology division of the Department of Radiology and Biomedical Imaging at the University of California, San Francisco. Dr. Kohi received her medical degree from New York Medical College with honors and completed her Diagnostic Radiology residency at UCSF. While a resident, Dr. Kohi completed a one-year research fellowship as the recipient of the NIH/NIBIB T32 Training Grant (2008-2009). Following her residency, Dr. Kohi completed a fellowship in Vascular and Interventional Radiology at UCSF, followed by a second fellowship in Women's Imaging at UCSF. She then joined the faculty in the Vascular and Interventional Radiology division at UCSF.

Dr. Kohi's primary research interest is in the field of women's health and interventions. Her research focuses on evaluating different minimally invasive treatment options for symptomatic uterine fibroids, optimizing the management of patients presenting with invasive placenta, and evaluating gender differences in vascular and oncologic diseases. Her clinical research and interests also include interventional oncology, hepatobiliary disease interventions, and inferior vena cava filters.
