John Mongan, MD, PhD, is the Vice Chair for Informatics and an Associate Professor of Clinical Radiology (Abdominal Imaging and Ultrasound section) in the Department of Radiology and Biomedical Imaging at the University of California, San Francisco.

His areas of research interest include informatics, electronic medical records, improving imaging efficacy, dual-energy computed tomography, and contrast media. Dr. Mongan also enjoys mentoring and instructing radiology residents, explaining and illustrating imaging cases.

As Vice Chair for Informatics, Dr. Mongan has led a group from UC Health in efforts to outline the requirements for a UC system-wide decision support system. Dr. Mongan takes an interest in improving quality, safety and efficiency of medical care through increased and improved incorporation of computers and technology. He helped lead a formal Quality Improvement initiative to ensure compliance with a new state law requiring radiation dose reporting.

Dr. Mongan is a 2013 UCSF Margulis Society Outstanding Resident Researcher Awardee. He has published over 30 peer-reviewed articles, written a book, contributed to a case review book, and is first inventor on 3 US patents. He has also contributed to software development at UCSF and UCSD.
