    Kimberly Kallianos, MD, is an Assistant Professor of Clinical Radiology in the Cardiac and Pulmonary Imaging section in the Department of Radiology and Biomedical Imaging at the University of California, San Francisco. Dr. Kallianos received her medical degree at Harvard Medical School in Boston, Massachusetts, and completed a one-year internship at Mount Auburn Hospital in Cambridge, Massachusetts. She completed a four-year diagnostic radiology residency and Cardiac and Pulmonary Imaging fellowship at UCSF.

    Dr. Kallianos has a passion for teaching and was selected as the radiology resident liaison for medical student teaching during her training. She also completed a dedicated year of advanced research training under the National Institutes of Health Research Training in Biomedical Imaging (T32) Grant. Her current projects include collaborative research efforts with faculty from cardiology, transplant hepatology, and rheumatology focusing on the use of cardiac magnetic resonance for assessment of myocardial disease including strain imaging in pulmonary hypertension and T2 analyses for myocardial iron overload. She is also interested in quality improvement research, including radiation dose reduction and resident/faculty agreement in interpretation of coronary computed tomography angiography.
