Dr. Yetkin is an expert in high-end imaging and was a member of the team that pioneered functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) and resting-state fMRI at Medical College of Wisconsin. She was recruited to UT Southwestern in 2000 to help establish the system for fMRI, MRI perfusion, MRI spectroscopy, and other high-end imaging and radiology techniques.
Dr. Yetkin earned her medical degree at Aegean University Medical School in Turkey, where she completed a residency in Radiology and worked as a faculty physician. She later completed a neuroradiology fellowship at UT Southwestern Medical Center.
Dr. Yetkin’s current research centers on the application of resting-state fMRI to clinical practice and using fMRI to measure memory dominance.
During her career, Dr. Yetkin has published extensively on the development of and best practices for functional MRI, resting-state fMRI, and neuroradiology.
She is a member of the American Society of Neuroradiology, International Society for Magnetic Resonance in Medicine, Organization for Human Brain Mapping, Radiological Society of North America, and Society for Neuroscience.
