Zhen Jane Wang, MD

Radiologist

Dr. Zhen Jane Wang is a radiologist in the Department of Radiology and Biomedical Imaging at UCSF, where she specializes in abdominal imaging. Wang's research focuses on the identification of novel imaging techniques, such as hyperpolarized 13C MR spectroscopic imaging (MRSI), to assess renal tumor aggressiveness. She is also studying functional imaging using magnetic resonance (MR) and computed tomography (CT) for diffuse renal disease. Wang has received several awards related to her research, including the Society of Abdominal Radiology Research Award, the Radiological Society of North America Research Scholar Award and the Department of Defense Cancer Research Concept Award.

Wang earned her medical degree from Northwestern University Medical School. Subsequently, she completed a residency in diagnostic radiology at UCSF, during which time she served as a chief resident. She also completed a fellowship in abdominal imaging at UCSF.
