Bio

Marta Heilbrun, MD, is an assistant professor in the Department of Radiology at the University of Utah and a member of the Experimental Therapeutics Program. Her clinical expertise is in abdominal imaging with an emphasis in imaging the genitourinary tract. Her research is in developing decision support tools through data-mining, natural language processing, and cost-effective analysis. Locally she is involved in research in prostate imaging and pelvic organ prolapse with advanced MRI techniques. Heilbrun received a bachelor’s degree from Amherst College, Massachusetts, and a medical degree from the University of Utah. She completed a residency in Diagnostic Radiology at Wake Forest University/North Carolina Baptist hospital in 2006, and an Abdominal imaging fellowship at the University of Utah in 2007.
