As a pediatric radiologist, Marcus Hook, MD, interprets imaging examinations and performs non-invasive procedures on children. His primary clinical and research interests involve quality assurance, patient safety, process improvement, and how technologies like AI (artificial intelligence) and computer learning are helping to improve all aspects of patient care. He is also interested in growing the availability and sustainable use of medical imaging technologies in resource-poor environments around the world.
Dr. Hook was born and raised in western Kansas. He graduated from the University of Kansas School of Medicine before completing his diagnostic radiology residency training at the University of Vermont Medical Center. He completed special training in pediatric radiology during a fellowship at Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia. He joined UVA in 2020.
An avid outdoorsman, Dr. Hook is interested in mountain culture and environmental stewardship. Aside from medicine and radiology, his main interests are rock and ice climbing, alpinism, backpacking, sustainability and renewable energy, wilderness survival and rescue, fly fishing, hunting, and paddle sports. He and his wife learned how to sail and downhill ski and they love traveling internationally and discovering new cultures and ideas. They have both spent time working in New Zealand, have completed several outreach trips to Latin America, and together completed a self-organized outreach trip to Cuba.
