Dr. Jamie Lee Twist Schroeder is a radiologist who cares for adults with cardiothoracic conditions (those involving organs inside the chest). A specialist in heart and lung imaging, she performs lung biopsies guided by computed tomography.

In research, Schroeder explores topics related to radiology care, cardiovascular disease and new imaging technologies. Her recent projects focus on improving decision-making in cardiac imaging and on using machine learning to analyze data obtained by myocardial perfusion MRI (a test to analyze blood flow through the heart).

Schroeder has a master's degree in bioengineering from Stanford University. Through the National Institutes of Health Oxford-Cambridge Scholars Program, she earned a doctorate from the University of Oxford's department of physiology, anatomy and genetics. She earned her medical degree from the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, where she also completed a residency in diagnostic radiology. At UCSF, she completed a fellowship in cardiac and pulmonary imaging. Prior to joining the UCSF faculty, she provided patient care in the cardiovascular and thoracic imaging section of the Palo Alto Veterans Affairs Medical Center, an affiliate of Stanford Medicine.

Schroeder was the sole recipient of the 2021 Rising Star Fellowship awarded by the North American Society for Cardiovascular Imaging. She has also been recognized by the Radiological Society of North America and American Association for Thoracic Surgery.
