Philosophy of Care

My goal is to provide every woman with the most meticulous and compassionate care possible in a respectful and culturally sensitive manner.

Clinical Interests

Dr. Shakeri specializes in breast imaging, including digital mammography, tomosynthesis, ultrasound, and magnetic resonance imaging. She performs all breast breast interventional procedures offered at UC Davis including percutaneous breast biopsies using ultrasound guidance, MRI localization, and stereotactic techniques.

Research/Academic Interests

UC Davis is unique in that we have access to the cutting edge technology of breast computed tomography(CT) and positron emission tomography/ CT hybrid imaging, developed by colleagues in the department of radiology. Of the five breast CT scanners in the world which have been used for human imaging two of them were designed and fabricated at UC Davis.

The UCD Breast Imaging research program has led the clinical trials involving head to head comparison of the clinical and research imaging modalities. Dr. Shakeri's area of research interest is focused on the comparative analysis of breast lesions on CT and both standard and newer breast imaging modalities, specifically tomosynthesis and breast MRI.
