Biography

Daniel Costa, M.D., is an Assistant Professor of Radiology at UT Southwestern Medical Center and a member of its Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) Division. He is a board-certified radiologist whose clinical interests include imaging modalities used to study conditions of the abdomen and pelvis, particularly multiparametric MRI and MRI-guided targeted biopsies for the detection and characterization of prostate cancer. 

Dr. Costa earned his medical degree at the University of São Paulo in Brazil, where he also completed both his residency in radiology and fellowship in abdominal imaging. He completed additional advanced training in body MRI through a fellowship at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center in Boston.

Prior to joining the faculty at UT Southwestern in 2011, Dr. Costa served as Assistant Professor of Radiology at the University of São Paulo and as Vice Chief of Clinical Operations in Radiology at the Institute of Cancer of São Paulo, Brazil's largest cancer hospital.

Dr. Costa is a nationally recognized researcher in the field of prostate cancer, and his work has resulted in multiple original research articles, publications and conference presentations. He has also contributed to several medical textbooks, including the Atlas of Cardiovascular Magnetic Resonance Imaging, CT and MR Angiography: A Comprehensive Vascular Assessment, and Textbook of Oncology.
