About Misha (Michael) Horowitz, MD, PhD

Misha (Michael) Horowitz, MD, PhD, is a board-certified radiologist who interprets chest radiographs, chest computed tomography (CT), computed tomography angiography (CTA), coronary and cardiac CTA, chest and cardiac magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) exams for patients at UC San Diego Health. He assists thoracic oncology physicians in the staging of intra- and extrathoracic cancers and carefully looks for signs of recurrent or residual disease on follow-up examinations after treatment. Dr. Horowitz also performs fluoroscopic examinations of diaphragm muscular function, most often in the pre- or post- lung transplant setting. These procedures are particularly impactful for him as they are rare instances where he interacts face-to-face with patients.

They hold regular conferences to guide decisions regarding interventional and endovascular procedures and surgeries.

As an assistant professor of radiology at UC San Diego School of Medicine, Dr. Horowitz loves training and working with residents. He learns from them as well and finds it extremely rewarding as a teacher seeing the residents grow from year to year.
