Dr. Ye obtained his MD and his PhD in bioengineering in 2017 at the University of Illinois Chicago in the Medical Scientist Training Program. After his internship at St. Francis Hospital in Evanston, Illinois, he completed his diagnostic radiology residency at the University of California San Francisco in 2022. During that time, he was selected as an NIH T32 research fellow and remained at UCSF to complete a neuroradiology fellowship in 2023. He has received multiple honors for his work including the Dr. Edward P. Cohen Medical Scientist Training Award, the UCSF Resident Research Fund Award, and the UCSF Radiology Outstanding Fellow/Instructor Teaching Award. Dr. Ye has served as director of the Resident Informatics Team and as a representative on the AIIMS (PACS) Steering Committee.
Dr. Ye’s research focuses on utilization and application of advanced magnetic resonance imaging techniques such as anomalous diffusion, elastography, and connectomics in the clinical setting. He has translated these techniques for better characterization of vascular, neurodegenerative, and psychiatric diseases. Dr. Ye also has a strong interest in trauma research and has performed retrospective studies that categorize cervical spine trauma with respect to established trauma classifications and to evaluate the utility of MRI in the setting of isolated prevertebral edema.
