    Matthew Amans, MD, MSc is an Associate Professor of Clinical Radiology of Neuro Interventional Radiology and Diagnostic Neuroradiology at UCSF. He completed Diagnostic Radiology residency at Weill Cornell Medical College in 2011. From 2011-2012, Dr. Amans was a Diagnostic Neuroradiology fellow at UCSF and then worked as an attending Neuroradiologist at UCSF San Francisco General Hospital . Subsequently, he completed a two-year Neurointerventional Radiology fellowship at UCSF.

    Dr. Amans’ clinical focus is on the treatment of acute stroke, cerebral aneurysms and other vascular anomalies, and the use of directed chemotherapy for cerebral tumors, including pediatric retinoblastoma. His interest in pulsatile tinnitus led him to found and serve as co-director of the UCSF Pulsatile Tinnitus Clinic, a multidisciplinary group of physicians and researchers in the departments of Radiology, Neurology, and Psychiatry.

    Expertise:
    Neurointerventional Radiology and Diagnostic Neuroradiology

    Specialty:
    Minimally invasive treatment of complex cerebrovascular diseases, pulsatile tinnitus, stroke

    Professional Interests:
    Interventional neuroradiology, diagnostic neuroradiology, cerebral angiography, management of acute intracranial hemorrhage, stroke, aneurysm, arteriovenous malformation, arteriovenous fistula, pediatric vascular malformations, pediatric stroke
