Women in Medicine: Thanh Van

Thanh Van, MD, Assistant Professor

Department of Radiology
Long School of Medicine

Dr. Thanh Van has always been a strong advocate for diversity in the Department of Radiology. She serves the community in many ways, including working and teaching chest radiology at the VA hospital for the past 6 years and teaching at the medical school since 2016.

Her research experience includes performing PET studies at the biomedical research foundation as early as 1998, and now serving as a certified PET scan reader. Other research has been performed using optoacoustics with Seno, MRI agents with Guebert, and research with Fuji on breast Tomosynthesis.

Since she is fellowship trained in mammography and board certified in both radiology and Nuclear Medicine, she educates residents and fellows in both subspecialty areas. She was a Senate at Large member of Long School of Medicine, and is beginning a second year on the Medical School Admissions Committee. She was recently promoted to associate professor, effective September 2022, and she is now section chief in the breast imaging and intervention section. Dr. Van has taught and mentored medical students, residents and fellows and is one of the outstanding educators at UT Health San Antonio.
