About

As a Breast Imaging Radiologist at The Baylor College of Medicine with a strong background in both the academic and business side of health care, Dr. Nguyen has the qualities, skills and experience to serve our diverse patient population.

Dr. Nguyen’s breast imaging experience gives him the expertise to contribute to our community. He completed his Breast Imaging Fellowship at the University of Washington Seattle Cancer Care Alliance. He currently perform breast screening, diagnostics, and procedures (stereotactic, ultrasound, and MRI guided biopsies). Dr. Nguyen is trained in the most up-to-date technologies in breast imaging (MRI, breast tomosynthesis, and automated whole breast ultrasound). He presents and discusses complicated cases at Breast Cancer Tumor Board Conferences with Oncologists, Surgeons, Radiation Oncologists, and Pathologists.

His solid understanding of the business side of health care has given him the perspective that motivates him to efficiently allocate the limited resources of breast imaging technology and funding for the underserved population. He majored in Business Administration at the University of California Berkeley Walter A. Haas School of Business with a 3.85 GPA and graduated with high honors. Relevant coursework included financial accounting, finance, and marketing management.

Dr. Nguyen’s leadership roles in Academics include Baylor College of Medicine Co-primary Faculty in the Department of Education, Innovation and Technology (DEIT) 2021 – present (guide professional growth and development of its members, and support faculty career advancement), UTMB Program Director for Radiology Residency Program 2016-2020 (designing curriculum, evaluating educational programs) and Gross Anatomy and Radiology (GAR) Course Co-Director (designing curriculum, evaluating educational programs). He is involved in the formal and informal education of medical students, residents, and fellows. I work on research projects with medical students, residents, and fellows for publication in medical journals.

Working on research projects in the past has given Dr. Nguyen experience and a strong foundation that he wishes to build upon. He was the recipient of the Roentgen Resident/Fellow Research Award, 2012. His professional accomplishments include 49 PubMed peer reviewed journal publications.
