Research Interests

Dr. Jenny K. Hoang MBBS is a neuroradiologist and Associate Professor in Radiology and Radiation Oncology at Duke University, NC USA where she is the Director of Head and Neck Radiology and Chair of the Grand Rounds Committee. Her career is accentuated by her strong involvement in research and education. She led the American College of Radiology (ACR) efforts in producing a White Paper on Incidental Thyroid Findings and was a core member of the ACR TI-RADS committee for thyroid ultrasound. She also serves on the National Cancer Institute PDQ Screening and Prevention Editorial Board.

She has published more than 110 peer-reviewed articles with a focus on thyroid and parathyroid imaging. Dr. Hoang was the recipient of GE-Radiology Research Academic Fellowship (GERRAF) Program (2010-2012) and ACR Innovations Grant (2017). She is a popular a faculty lecturer at national and international meetings. She is also actively educating and advocating on Twitter. Connect with her at @JennyKHoang.
