Andrew Taylor, MD, PhD

Interventional radiologist

Dr. Andrew G. Taylor specializes in interventional oncology, especially tumors of the liver, prostate and kidneys, venous interventions such as placement and management of inferior vena cava (IVC) filters and new methods of molecular imaging such as hyperpolarized carbon magnetic resonance imaging (MRI).

Taylor earned a medical degree and Ph.D. in biomedical engineering from the University of Pennsylvania, followed by an internship in internal medicine at the same institution. Subsequently, he completed a residency in diagnostic radiology, followed by a fellowship in vascular and interventional radiology at UCSF, where he is now an assistant clinical professor of clinical radiology.
