Bio Statement

Donna Reeve, MS, DABR, DABMP, is a Senior Medical Physicist with the Department of Imaging Physics at the University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center. She is board certified in Diagnostic Medical Physics by the American Board of Radiology and in Magnetic Resonance Imaging Physics by the American Board of Medical Physics.

She earned her MS degree in Biomedical Sciences (Medical Physics Program) from the University of Texas Graduate School Of Biomedical Sciences in 1997. After graduating she worked as a diagnostic medical physicist for Western Pennsylvania Hospital in Pittsburgh and then as a consulting physicist in California before joining the Department of Imaging Physics at MD Anderson in 2004. Her primary responsibilities include oversight of MD Anderson’s MRI and ultrasound quality control programs. In addition to her clinical responsibilities she is Associate Faculty in the Medical Physics program of the Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences and a Clinical Coordinator for the Imaging Physics Residency Program. Her interests include MRI safety, MRI quality assurance testing and graduate medical physics education.
