About me

Dr. Maureen Kohi is an interventional radiologist, a physician who uses minimally invasive image-guidance techniques to treat patients with a variety of disorders. She serves as chief of interventional radiology at UCSF.

Kohi is a renowned expert on women's health and interventions. Her research evaluates different minimally invasive treatment options for symptomatic uterine fibroids (muscle growths that develop inside the uterus and cause various symptoms), how to best treat patients with morbidly adherent placenta (when the placenta fails to detach from the uterine wall, which can cause massive bleeding) and evaluating gender differences in cardiovascular disease and cancers. Her research interests also include interventional oncology; treatments for diseases of the liver, gallbladder and bile ducts; and inferior vena cava filters (devices implanted to prevent life-threatening blood clots in the lungs).

Kohi earned her medical degree with honors at New York Medical College. She completed a residency in diagnostic radiology at UCSF, and during this time she also completed a one-year research fellowship as the recipient of a grant from the National Institute of Biomedical Imaging and Bioengineering, part of the National Institutes of Health. She then completed separate fellowships in interventional radiology and women's imaging (focused on breast imaging and ultrasound) at UCSF.

Kohi is the president of the Western Angiographic and Interventional Society, the scientific chair for the Society of Interventional Radiology's annual meeting, and the chair of the Society of Interventional Radiology's Women in Interventional Radiology Committee. She is also a member of numerous professional associations, including the Radiological Society of North America, American Society of Reproductive Medicine, Society of Abdominal Radiology and Cardiovascular and Interventional Radiological Society of Europe.

Outside of work, Kohi enjoys spending time with her family and friends, taking part in athletic activities and cooking.
