Vickie Feldstein, MD, is a Professor of Clinical Radiology at the University of California, San Francisco. She is an expert in many applications of diagnostic ultrasound and the use of Doppler techniques to analyze blood flow. Dr. Feldstein received her medical degree from Dartmouth Medical School Brown University Program in Medicine, Rhode Island in 1986, and completed her residency in Radiology at the University of California, San Francisco, serving as Chief Resident in 1991.
Dr. Feldstein’s research efforts focus on obstetric, gynecologic and abdominal applications of sonography in evaluation of a variety of pathologic conditions. Particularly, she has been studying complicated twin pregnancies and has used Doppler ultrasound techniques to explore the etiology and pathophysiology of complicated monochorionic (single placenta) twin pregnancies.
Dr. Feldstein has served as a Co-Investigator with a multidisciplinary team of researchers at UCSF. She has written, lectured, and investigated widely on ways to use ultrasound to safely and effectively guide needle procedures as well as investigating ultrasound findings noted in the prenatal evaluation of fetuses with anomalies.
