Sachin Saboo, M.D., is an Assistant Professor of Radiology at UT Southwestern Medical Center and a member of its Cardiothoracic Imaging Division. His clinical interests include conventional radiology; computed tomography (CT); and magnetic resonance (MR) imaging of emergency cases, cancers, and interstitial lung disease (ILD).

After earning his medical degree at the Government Medical College in Aurangabad, India, Dr. Saboo completed residencies in diagnostic radiology at Topiwala National Medical College and B.Y.L. Nair Hospital in Mumbai, where he earned his diploma in medical radio-diagnosis, and at the Diwan Chand Satyapal Aggarwal Diagnostic Imaging Research Centre in Delhi, where he earned a Diplomate of National Board (DNB) in radio-diagnosis.

Dr. Saboo then traveled to the United States to receive advanced training through four separate fellowships, the first two in cancer imaging and breast imaging at the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, the second two in noninvasive cardiovascular imaging and emergency radiology at Brigham and Women's Hospital. 

Dr. Saboo’s research efforts have been internationally recognized through publications, scholarly reviews, and invited book chapters. While maintaining a broad interest in all aspects of cardiothoracic imaging, Dr. Saboo focuses his research on cancer imaging, emergency radiology, airway imaging, and noninvasive cardiovascular imaging. His goal is to help radiologists diagnose abnormalities that characterize complex congenital cardiac diseases, including malposition of the branch pulmonary arteries; anomalous origin of one pulmonary artery from the aorta; and various malignancies such as leiomyosarcomas, liposarcoma, lymphoma, and intrathoracic synovial sarcomas.

At UT Southwestern, Dr. Saboo serves on multiple committees, including the Radiology Residency Core Curriculum Committee, the Cardiothoracic Radiology Fellowship Program Evaluation Committee, the American College of Radiology Computed Tomography Accreditation Committee for Clements University Hospital, and the Cardiothoracic Imaging Task Force for Pulmonary Nodule. He is also a member of the Thoracic Tumor Board Committee, where he works closely with practitioners from other disciplines to manage patients with thoracic malignancies. 

He is a member of national and international professional organizations including the Radiological Society of North America, the European Society of Radiology, the American Roentgen Ray Society, the American Society of Emergency Radiology, the Society of Cardiovascular CT, the American College of Radiology, and the Association of University Radiologists. 

Dr. Saboo serves as a reviewer for international scientific journals including Radiology, European Radiology, Emergency Radiology, International Journal of Cardiovascular Imaging, Clinical Imaging and Atherosclerosis. He is an Associate Editor for Current Problems in Diagnostic Radiology; an editorial board member of SM Radiology, Journal of Advances in Radiology and Medical Imaging, and Indian Journal of Radiology and Imaging; and an Academic Editor for Medicine.
