About Dr. Kalambo
Dr. Megan Kalambo is an Associate Professor in the Department of Breast Imaging at The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center (MDACC). She obtained her medical degree from Pennsylvania State College of Medicine and completed her residency training at The University of Texas McGovern Medical School at Houston. Following her residency, she completed a dedicated breast imaging fellowship at MDACC in 2012 and then joined the breast imaging department as a faculty member in 2013. From November 2014 to June 2020, Dr. Kalambo worked as a community-based academic radiologist in the MDACC network expansion partnership with Memorial Hermann. In June 2020, she began serving as the Breast Imaging Department's Director of the Houston Area Locations, overseeing the seemless integration of multidisciplinary care and clinical protocols that are practiced at the Texas Medical Center with MDACC's growing breast imaging footprint and network in the greater Houston area.
She currently practices in a dynamic multidisciplinary breast center interpreting mammograms, breast ultrasounds, breast MRI and image-guided breast biopsies. She has a keen interest in novel, minimally invasive multimodality interventional and diagnostic techniques for the diagnosis and treatment of breast disorders. She also has a passion for teaching residents and fellows.
