About Zachary T. Berman, MD
Zachary T. Berman, MD is an interventional radiologist who performs minimally invasive image guided procedures. He specializes in liver directed therapies for hepatocellular carcinoma and metastatic liver disease such as transarterial radioembolization (TARE/SIRT), transarterial chemoembolization (TACE), and percutaneous ablation (microwave, radiofrequency and cryoablation). Additionally, he focuses on the treatment of vascular malformations (arteriovenous malformations and venous malformations).
Dr. Berman enjoys using a multidisciplinary approach and works collaboratively with physicians in various specialties to determine the best care path for his patients.
As an assistant professor at UC San Diego School of Medicine, he instructs medical students, residents, and fellows in the Department of Radiology. Dr. Berman finds mentoring future clinicians and leaders in interventional radiologists extremely rewarding.
He is energized by the ability to conduct cutting edge research to expand and improve the delivery of minimally invasive procedures. Dr. Berman is actively engaged in clinical trials directed toward primary and metastatic liver disease treatments, specifically the improved use of Yttrium 90 Radioembolization.
He completed an internship and interventional radiology residency at UC San Diego School of Medicine, where he was the first integrated interventional radiology resident graduate. Dr. Berman was chief diagnostic radiology resident in 2018-2019 and chief interventional radiology resident in 2019-2020. He earned his medical degree from Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine in Cleveland, Ohio.
Dr. Berman is a member of the Society of Interventional Radiology, the Society of Interventional Oncology and the Radiologic Society of North America.
In his free time, he enjoys running, hiking and astrophotography.
