Vickie Feldstein, M.D.

Radiologist

Dr. Vickie Feldstein specializes in diagnostic ultrasound and is especially interested in the sonographic assessment of fetal structural malformations, which she applies to her work with the Fetal Treatment Center at UCSF Benioff Children's Hospital. In addition, she is involved with a number of research projects that are investigating the applications of diagnostic ultrasound and Doppler flow analysis for a variety of conditions, including liver disease, gynecologic conditions, complications of twin pregnancies and fetal congenital abnormalities.

Feldstein graduated cum laude from Harvard College and earned her medical degree from the Dartmouth Medical School and the Brown University Program in Medicine. She went on to complete her residency in diagnostic radiology as well as a fellowship in ultrasonography at UCSF, where she is currently an associate professor of clinical radiology. She is board certified in diagnostic radiology.
