Michael Ohliger, MD, PhD, is an Assistant Professor in Residence in the Department of Radiology and Biomedical Imaging at the University of California, San Francisco. Dr. Ohliger obtained his PhD in Medical Physics from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology Harvard/MIT Division of Health Sciences and Technology in 2005, and he received his MD in Medicine from Harvard Medical School in Cambridge, Massachusetts in 2007. He completed his residency in Diagnostic Radiology from UCSF in 2012, followed by a fellowship in Abdominal Imaging from UCSF in 2013. He accepted the position of Assistant Professor in Residence at UCSF and SFGH, in July 2013.
Dr. Ohliger’s main research interest is the development and clinical translation of new MRI techniques for the abdomen and pelvis, with a focus on molecular imaging with hyperpolarized carbon-13 compounds. He is also interested in providing his expertise in developing new technology for patients with applications to liver, kidney, and prostate cancer. Dr. Ohliger has projects using diffusion tractography to help visualize the prostate capsule and plan to explore the application of new techniques such as (arterial spin labeling) using MRI’s to measure perfusion without intravenous contrast.
Dr. Ohliger has 13 published articles and he has written 18 peer-reviewed articles and 12 abstracts.
