Biography

Christine Chen, M.D., is an Assistant Professor of Radiology at UT Southwestern Medical Center, and a member of its Vascular & Interventional Radiology Division. Her clinical interests include an array of interventional procedures, such as image-guided biopsies, drainages, and uterine fibroid ablations, as well as peripheral arterial disease and abdominal endovascular aortic repair.

Dr. Chen holds two bachelor’s degrees, in East Asian studies and in comparative literature, from Brown University in Providence, Rhode Island. She remained there to earn her medical degree from the Warren Alpert Medical School before receiving radiology residency training at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, where she ultimately served as chief resident. She then obtained advanced training through a fellowship program in vascular and interventional radiology at the University of Virginia in Charlottesville.

Dr. Chen’s research interests include streamlining of departmental processes and quality improvement, as well as multidisciplinary collaboration. She has also investigated primary stent placement for hepatic artery stenosis after liver transplantation, and the use of uterine artery embolization prior to fibroid myomectomy to reduce intra-operative blood loss.

She is an active member of several professional organizations, including the American Roentgen Ray Society, Radiological Society of North America, Society of Interventional Radiology, and the American Medical Association.
