    Dr. Brunson received his medical degree at UCSF. After an internship with the UCSF-East Bay Surgery Program at Highland Hospital and Kaiser Oakland, he completed his integrated interventional radiology residency at the University of Arizona in Tucson. Dr. Brunson was chief interventional radiology resident and served Graduate Medical Education as an executive member to the advisory and diversity committees, and as a search committee member for associate dean. Dr. Brunson has received the RSNA Roentgen Resident/Fellow Research Award and the University of Arizona GME Resident Academic Career Scholarship. While he was a UCSF medical student, Brunson was an organizer with #whitecoatsforBlacklives, a movement to draw attention to the effects of racial disparities on health care.

    Dr. Brunson’s clinical practice and research program focuses on oncologic outcomes and healthcare disparities, particularly in patients with NASH/NAFLD, as well as advanced dosimetry, particularly tumor perfusion augmentation. His publications have focused on interventional radiology methods for managing liver tumors, the use of percutaneous radiofrequency ablation, and comparisons of 2-D perfusion angiography and Tc-99m MAA SPECT/CT.

    Altmetrics Details PMC Citations indicate the number of times the publication was cited by articles in PubMed Central, and the Altmetric score represents citations in news articles and social media. (Note that publications are often cited in additional ways that are not shown here.) Fields are based on how the National Library of Medicine (NLM) classifies the publication's journal and might not represent the specific topic of the publication. Translation tags are based on the publication type and the MeSH terms NLM assigns to the publication. Some publications (especially newer ones and publications not in PubMed) might not yet be assigned Field or Translation tags.) Click a Field or Translation tag to filter the publications.
