Sally Hayward Goudreau, M.D., FACR, FSBI, is a Professor of Radiology at UT Southwestern Medical Center and a member of its Breast Imaging Division. She also serves as Director of the Breast Imaging Fellowship program. Her clinical interests include early detection of breast cancer through the screening and diagnosis of breast abnormalities using innovative technology.
I am honored to be a member of the Radiology faculty and play a role in the education and mentoring of future generations of physicians.
Dr. Goudreau holds a bachelor of science degree in chemical engineering from Texas A&M University. She earned her medical degree at UT Southwestern and completed her residency training in diagnostic radiology at the University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics in Iowa City. She remained at the University of Iowa to receive advanced fellowship training in breast imaging, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), ultrasound, and computed tomography (CT).
Leadership and service
Prior to joining the UT Southwestern faculty in 2008, Dr. Goudreau served as an Assistant Professor of Radiology at the University of Cincinnati's Barrett Breast Center, and then at the University of Colorado Health Science Center in Denver, where she was the Medical Director of Breast Imaging and the Director of the Women's Imaging Fellowship program.
She relocated to Dallas from Denver in 1997, where she developed the breast imaging section at Southwest Diagnostic Imaging Center and served as the Medical Director of Breast Imaging. During this time, she also became Medical Director of Breast Imaging for the Women's Diagnostic and Breast Center at Presbyterian Hospital of Dallas, where she guided a major renovation.
Dr. Goudreau serves on numerous UT Southwestern and departmental committees. She has a strong commitment to medical student and resident education, demonstrated by her work as a Medical Student and Resident Ambassador and service on the UT Southwestern Medical School Admissions Committee.
She is a member of numerous local and national professional societies, including the American College of Radiology, American Medical Association, American Roentgen Ray Society, the Society of Breast Imaging, the Texas Medical Association, and the Texas Radiological Society. She is also a founding member of the Society for the Advancement of Women's Imaging, a Fellow of the American College of Radiology, and a Fellow of the Society of Breast Imaging.
Dr. Goudreau's research interests include developing new technologies and techniques to aid in the diagnosis and treatment of breast cancer. Her research enriches her clinical practice, and her work has been published in a number of peer-reviewed journals.
A commitment to volunteering and philanthropy
Dr. Goudreau is an active participant in the Texas A&M Association of Former Students, for which she serves as a Representative at Large on the Leadership Council, with a particular interest in mentoring and counseling premedical students. Together with her husband, Jeff Goudreau, M.D., FACP, she has also volunteered as a physician and provides support to the U.S. Women's National Water Polo Team. They have traveled with the team nationally, as well as internationally to China, Brazil, and Hungary.
The Goudreaus have a passion for supporting higher education through endowed scholarships at Texas A&M University, Baylor University, and Notre Dame University, where a portion of their donations funds documentary film-making pertaining to breast cancer.
The Goudreaus enjoy life together as empty nesters. When Dr. Goudreau and her husband are not traveling, they can be found biking all over Dallas, swimming, growing their own vegetables and flowers, and enjoying the opera.
