    Dorota Jakubowski Wisner, MD, PhD, is an Assistant Professor in Residence in the Women’s Imaging Section at the University of California, San Francisco. Dr. Wisner was awarded a PhD in Physics at the University of California, Irvine. She received her MD from the University of California, Irvine in 2004, residency in Diagnostic Radiology at UCSF in 2009, and a dedicated, intensive 1-year Breast Imaging Fellowship at UCSF in 2010.

    Dr. Wisner’s research focus is on improving current available breast imaging technology. Dr. Wisner is particularly focused on functional breast MRI, including diffusion weighted imaging, and on non-invasive optical spectroscopy applied to the diagnosis and early characterization of breast cancer.
