      Thomas Hope, MD, is an Assistant Professor in Residence in the Abdominal Imaging and Nuclear Medicine sections at UCSF and the San Francisco Veterans Affairs Medical Center. In 2007, he received his medical degree from Stanford University School of Medicine and he completed a one-year internship at Kaiser Permanente, San Francisco. From 2008-2012, Dr. Hope completed a residency in Diagnostic Radiology at the University of California, San Francisco, followed by a clinical fellowship in Body MRI and Nuclear Medicine from Stanford Medical Center in 2013.

      Dr. Hope’s main research focus is on novel imaging agents. He is the principle investigator on the Ga-68 DOTA-TOC IND at UCSF and the Ga-68 HBED-CC PSMA IND at UCSF. He has combined his interest in MR imaging with PET in the simultaneous modality PET/MRI, helping lead the development of the clinical PET/MRI program. Additionally he is developing the PRRT (peptide receptor radionuclide therapy) program for neuroendocrine tumors at UCSF.

      Dr. Hope has published 30 peer-reviewed articles, including 17 first author publications.
