Aliya Qayyum, MD

Specialty: Radiology

Program: Diagnostic Imaging and Interventional Radiology

Language(s): English

  • Overview

    Dr. Qayyum received her MD from Imperial College School of Medicine in London, UK. She completed a Diagnostic Radiology Residency at St. Georges Hospital, London, followed by a Body Imaging Fellowship at the University of California, San Francisco. Prior to joining Moffitt, Dr. Qayyum was appointed Professor in the Department of Diagnostic Radiology and Biomedical Imaging at UCSF where she obtained an R01 for the MRI evaluation of nonalcoholic fatty liver disease and was Program Director for the UCSF Diagnostic Radiology Residency. Dr Qayyum was recruited to the Department of Diagnostic Radiology, Division of Diagnostic Imaging at the University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center where she developed collaborated research on MRI biomarkers of early immunotherapy response in HCC with the MD Anderson Liver Cancer Center. Dr Qayyum has over 140 publications. Dr. Qayyum’s clinical focus is MRI and CT. In particular, she is interested in hepatobiliary diseases and liver cancer. Her research interests include investigating imaging tools for the evaluation of the biophysical properties of cancer and its environment to identify factors important in cancer immune resistance, aggressive behavior and recurrence.

    Overall Satisfaction


    0 patients rated this provider

    The Provider Rating is an average of all responses to specific care provider-related questions from our nationally-recognized Press Ganey Patient Satisfaction Survey. Responses are measured on a scale of 1 to 5 with 5 being the best score.

    Patients that are treated in outpatient or hospital environments may receive different surveys, and the volume of responses will vary by question.

    Learn more about our patient satisfaction survey



    Comments are gathered from specific care provider-related questions from our Patient Satisfaction Survey . The comments are submitted by patients and reflect their views and opinions. Patients are de-identified for confidentiality and patient privacy.

    We post both positive and negative comments from the surveys. We do not post comments that are libelous, slanderous, profane, irrelevant or otherwise inappropriate or may risk the privacy of our patients. A “[…]” in the comments below indicates de-identified patient information or comments that are unrelated to the patient’s experience with the visit to the provider, such as comments related to another provider, about the survey itself, or otherwise completely off-topic.

    Not all providers will have a star rating or comments. In order to ensure accuracy of our ratings, we only display ratings for providers who have a minimum of 30 completed from the previous 12 months.

    Learn more about our patient comments

    Provider Ratings and comments are gathered from our nationally-recognized Press Ganey Patient Satisfaction Survey. If a provider does not have ratings or comments listed it can be for several reasons, including:

    • The provider has not yet received the minimum number of patient satisfaction surveys to be eligible for display. We require a minimum of 30 surveys before we post results to ensure that the rating is statistically reliable and a true reflection of patient satisfaction.
    • He or she may be a researcher or other type of provider that does not see patients.
    • The provider practices in a specialty or office that does not use the specified surveys currently used for these ratings.
