Biography

Matthew Anderson, M.D., is an Assistant Professor of Radiology at UT Southwestern Medical Center and a member of its Vascular & Interventional Radiology Division. He provides clinical vascular and interventional radiology services at William P. Clements Jr. Hospital, Zale Lipshy University Hospital, and Parkland Memorial Hospital. 

Dr. Anderson holds a bachelor’s degree in biochemistry from the University of Texas at Austin, and earned his medical degree at UT Southwestern. He performed his residency in radiology at the University of Texas Medical Branch in Galveston. He then received advanced training in vascular and interventional radiology through a fellowship program at the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences in Little Rock. 

At UT Southwestern, Dr. Anderson serves as the director of the Vascular& Interventional Radiology Fellowship Program and the Integrated Interventional Radiology Residency Program. He is also a member of the University Hospitals Credentialing Committee and the Interventional Radiology Workflow Ad Hoc Committee. 

Dr. Anderson trains both faculty and trainees in the use of intravascular ultrasound for the placement of transjugular intrahepatic portosystemic shunts. He also helped develop and advance a technique for percutaneous gastrostomy tube placement, which spares patients from the placement of a nasogastric tube for air insufflation. Dr. Anderson's skill at adrenal vein sampling, a technically challenging procedure, has resulted in referrals from throughout Texas and New Mexico.

Dr. Anderson's research has focused on portosystemic shunts. His interest in locoregional oncologic interventions has led to his co-authoring a book chapter on the use of drug eluting beads for the targeted delivery of chemotherapy to hepatic lesions. He has presented his research findings at scientific and professional conferences across the United States.
