Dr. Matthew Barkovich is a pediatric neuroradiologist at the University of California, San Francisco. He specializes in the imaging of diseases involving the brain and spine in children.
He received his medical degree from UC San Diego School of Medicine (2013), and then completed a one-year internship at Highland Hospital in Oakland, CA (2014). He completed his diagnostic radiology residency at UCSF in 2018. During his final year of residency, Dr. Barkovich was a Research Fellow in the 2017-2018 NIH T32 Biomedical Imaging Training Program where he focused his research on neurofibromatosis type 1 (NF1) and how imaging abnormalities in NF1 patients correlate with clinical phenotype. In 2019, Dr. Barkovich completed a fellowship in Neuroradiology at UCSF.
Dr. Barkovich was named the 2014 Intern of the Year at Highland Hospital, received the Resident Research grant from the Margulis Society in 2016, and was a recipient of the American Society of Pediatric Neuroradiology Derek Harwood Nash Award in 2018 for his work developing a pediatric hindbrain atlas. His research is focused on using advanced imaging to better understand the molecular pathways that drive neurodevelopmental disorders and normal brain development.
