Biography

Dr. Tan is Professor of Imaging Sciences at the University of Rochester Medical Center and Chief of Medical Imaging at Highland Hospital. He received his Bachelor's Degree in Biology and History at Union College and his M.D. from Albany Medical College through the Accelerated BS/MD program. At the University of Rochester he completed his radiology residency and served as Chief Resident. Dr. Tan completed his fellowship in Musculoskeletal Imaging at the University of Rochester.

His primary specialties are musculoskeletal imaging, gastrointestinal imaging, and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), but his clinical practice covers the spectrum of medical imaging. Dr Tan has had several research collaborations, most recently with the Department of Orthopedics. Dr Tan led Highland Hospital's team at the ACR national research trial on Virtual Colonoscopy and was the first to offer this technology in Western New York. His expertise in this modality is well known, and he has lectured on it extensively. Among his publications Professor Tan co-authored a textbook on MRI that has been translated into seven languages.

Dr Tan serves on numerous clinical and administrative committees at Highland Hospital and in the Department of Imaging Sciences at the University of Rochester.
