Z. Jane Wang, MD, received her undergraduate degree in Electrical Engineering from Brown University, and her medical degree from Northwestern University Medical School. She completed her residency training in Diagnostic Radiology at the University of California, San Francisco, during which time she also served as a Chief Resident from 2006-2007. Dr. Wang subsequently completed a fellowship in Abdominal Imaging at the University of California, San Francisco.
Dr. Wang’s research interests primarily focus on identification of novel imaging techniques and their development into practical and clinically useful diagnostic tools, with a particular emphasis on renal tumors and diffuse renal disease. One of Dr. Wang’s current research endeavor is to use hyperpolarized 13C MR spectroscopic imaging (MRSI) to assess renal tumor aggressiveness. She has also been studying functional imaging using MR and CT of diffuse renal disease. She is the recipient of several grants, including Department of Defense Peer Reviewed Cancer Research Program Concept Award, Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) Scholar Grant, and RSNA Fellow Grant.
Dr. Wang has been invited to lecture on various topics in Abdominal Imaging at multiple radiology societies, including the Abdominal Radiology Course (Joint Society of Gastrointestinal Radiologists and Society of Uroradiology), American Roentgen Ray Society Meeting, as well as internationally at the Asian-Oceanian Congress of Radiology, and the Brazilian Congress of Radiology.
