About Pulin Sheth, MD

Pulin A. Sheth, MD, has dedicated his career to developing and continually evolving the most advanced imaging techniques to screen, diagnose and stage breast cancer.

Dr. Sheth joined Keck Medicine of USC in 2001, and now serves as medical director of the Breast Imaging Program at USC Norris Comprehensive Cancer Center and its satellite centers. He is chief of breast magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and staff radiologist at Keck Medicine and the Los Angeles County + USC Medical Center.

His research interests include product design and development of breast imaging and intervention devices, as well as the effectiveness of advanced imaging techniques such as MRI, ultrasound and tomosynthesis or 3D mammography. He is co-investigator on multicenter National Institutes of Health-funded studies that are testing new chemotherapy agents and the benefits of 3D versus digital mammography, among other research projects.

Dr. Sheth was inspired by his father to become a physician — a profession he feels he was born to do and approaches with passion and conviction. Away from work, he loves spending time with his boys.

“It’s a sacred duty and calling to be given the opportunity to take care of a patient in their time of need. It’s important to develop trust and compassion, so patients feel you are their advocate and champion.

“You must be thorough and a good listener. Teach the patient in a way that they feel empowered. Most importantly, I want my patients to know that I work for them, and I’m on this journey with them.”
