    Dr. Vella completed her MD, residency and fellowship at UCSF while also serving as a T32 scholar during 2020-21.

    As a clinician scientist, Dr. Vella has published research on the use of PET/CT in lung cancer staging in the veteran population, on MRI sequences in screening for cerebral arteriovenous malformations in Hereditary Hemorrhagic Telangiectasia patients and on gender disparities between education leadership and other forms of leadership in academic radiology.

    Current projects include the creation and evaluation of an imaging-based criteria for the diagnosis of hypersensitivity pneumonitis, analysis of medical student grading schema, and evaluation of the natural history of pulmonary metastases in gastrointestinal tumors.

    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.
