Valérie Vilgrain is Director of the Radiology Department at the University Hospital Beaujon in Clichy (France) and full professor at the University Paris Diderot (France). Her research topics are diagnostic and interventional imaging of the liver and bile ducts with CT and MRI. She received her MD from the René Descartes Medical University of Paris in 1985. She completed a residency in Radiology and was assistant Professor in Radiology at the University Hospital Beaujon. She is member of several international societies (Radiological Society of North America, European Society of Radiology, European Society of Gastroenterology and Abdominal Radiology), and the French Radiology Society. She was responsible for the Education Program Committee of the French annual meeting from 2000 to 2008 and she is currently Vice-Director of the French Radiology Society. She published numerous peer-reviewed articles (h-index: 57) and is reviewer for many renowned journals including European Radiology, Liver Transplantation, Hepatology, Journal of Hepatology, Radiology, and European Journal of Radiology.
