Dr. Katarzyna J. Macura is a professor in the Johns Hopkins Medicine department of radiology and radiological science, a professor of oncology and urology at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, and a member of the Johns Hopkins Kimmel Cancer Center and the Johns Hopkins Precision Medicine Center of Excellence for Prostate Cancer. She is a radiologist consultant for the Prostate Cancer Multidisciplinary Clinic at The Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore, MD and for the Sibley’s Prostate Cancer Multidisciplinary Clinic in Washington, D.C. Dr. Macura established a clinical and research prostate imaging program with a focus on magnetic resonance imaging (MRI).
Dr. Macura is board certified in diagnostic radiology and has expertise in cross-sectional body imaging, MRI and prostate cancer, and image-guided biopsies.
Dr. Macura earned her medical degree from the Medical University of Lodz in Poland. She completed a residency in diagnostic radiology at the Medical College of Georgia and a fellowship in cross-sectional body imaging at Johns Hopkins University.
Prior to arrival at Hopkins, Dr. Macura completed post-doctoral research in Artificial Intelligence at the University of Georgia in Athens, GA. With a PhD degree in Medical Informatics, she had pioneered early applications of Artificial Intelligence for medical decision support, a domain that is now rapidly expanding owing to advancements in computer technologies and recent recognition that computerized decision support augments appropriate utilization of medical technologies, provides second opinion systems for improved diagnostics and management, and allows optimization of medical care delivery with assessments of quality and safety. Dr. Macura is a certified knowledge engineer.
Dr. Macura is a member of several national and international radiology organizations. She served as president of the Maryland Radiological Society, the Maryland Chapter of the American College of Radiology (ACR), between 2013 and 2015, as well as president of the American Association for Women Radiologists (AAWR) in 2005. She is a member of the ACR Board of Chancellors and currently chairs the ACR Commission for Women and Diversity. She was named the Outstanding Teacher of the Year by Hopkins Radiology Residents in 2005. Dr. Macura was also named the Honored Educator by the Radiological Society of North America in 2012 and 2014. In 2016, she received the "Diamond" Jim Brady Urology Residents teaching award and the AAWR Marie Sklodowska-Curie award.
Dr. Macura is a Fellow of the American College of Radiology and the Society of Computed Body Tomography and Magnetic Resonance.
