Meet Our Team
Jerrold H. Mink, MD, FACR
Dr. Mink is a nationally recognized expert in musculoskeletal imaging and an innovator in applications of magnetic resonance to musculoskeletal disorders. The first of the five textbooks he has authored, MRI of the Knee, was published in 1987 and remains the benchmark work in the field. Virtually all fundamental principles and criteria for MR diagnoses of knee disorders were established in this publication.
Dr. Mink completed his undergraduate training at the University of Illinois, where he was a Phi Beta Kappa. He received his M.D. degree with honors from the University of Illinois College of Medicine, and was elected to AOA Honor Society. Dr. Mink then interned at Harbor General Hospital in Torrance, California, and took his radiology residency at UCLA Center for the Health Sciences, Los Angeles, California. He is board certified in Radiology.
The Director of the Section on Bone Radiology at UCLA from 1975 to 1978, Dr. Mink subsequently assumed the positions of Director of Musculoskeletal Imaging and Director of Magnetic Resonance Imaging at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center Los Angeles. He was honored with a full-time appointment to the Department of Radiology at UCLA for four years, and was the recipient of the teacher of the year award both at UCLA and at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center. Dr. Mink currently serves as an Associate Clinical Professor of Radiology at the University of California, San Francisco. He was elected to fellowship in the American College of Radiology in 1995.
Dr. Mink's academic accomplishments are well known to the radiologic, orthopedic and rheumatologic communities. Dr. Mink is the author of five major textbooks on musculoskeletal imaging. In addition, he has written 22 textbook chapters and more than 70 original articles in peer-reviewed journals. He currently is a reviewer for manuscripts submitted to Radiology, Clinical Orthopedics, and Arthroscopy.
Dr. Mink has been invited to speak at major orthopedic meetings including the North America Arthroscopy Association, American Academy of Sports Medicine and Western Orthopedic Association. He is a member of the American College of Radiology, California Medical Association, California Radiological Society, North American Spine Society and International Spinal Injection Society.
Marshall E. Bein, MD
Dr. Bein received his undergraduate degree in biology from Boston University and his M.D. and M.S. in physiology from the University of Louisville School of Medicine. He completed an internship and residency in internal medicine at the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania, and then a second residency in diagnostic radiology at UCLA Center for the Health Sciences.
After fulfilling a one year fellowship in chest radiology at Yale University School of Medicine, Dr. Bein returned to UCLA to direct the section of chest radiology for nearly five years. He then moved on to private practice and has been specializing in body imaging for the past 30 years.
Board certified in both Internal Medicine and Radiology, Dr. Bein has extensive experience in chest imaging, especially high resolution CT. He is skilled in all applications of CT and MR imaging of the abdomen and pelvis. His interest and expertise in ultrasound includes abdomen, pelvis, small parts and sonohysterography imaging.
The author of dozens of articles in peer-reviewed journals and several book chapters, Dr. Bein maintains memberships in the American College of Radiology, Radiological Society of North America, American Roentgen Ray Society and Los Angeles Radiological Society.
Rachael E. Gordon, MD, CAQ
Dr. Gordon graduated with honors from University of Colorado Medical School, where she was elected to Alpha Omega Alpha Honor Society. Following her diagnostic radiology residency at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, Dr. Gordon completed a two-year fellowship in Neuroradiology at the Mallinckrodt Institute of Radiology at Washington University in St. Louis. Dr. Gordon obtained her Certificate of Added Qualification in Neuroradiology from the American Board of Radiology and is a senior member of the American Society of Neuroradiology. She has been practicing neuroradiology in Los Angeles since 1997.
In addition to expertise and experience in all aspects of imaging the brain, spine and head/neck, Dr. Gordon's interests include specialized imaging in the evaluation of the central nervous system including MR angiography and high-resolution imaging of the cranial nerves. She is also skilled in spine intervention, performing fluoroscopically-guided epidural injections, facet injections and myelography.
Dr. Gordon is a member of the American Society of Neuroradiology, American College of Radiology, Radiological Society of North American and Alpha Omega Alpha Honor Society.
Vu L. Bui, MD
Dr. Bui joined Mink Radiologic Imaging in 2009. Previously, he worked exclusively as a musculoskeletal imager in the Renaissance Imaging Group, serving as the Medical Director of the outpatient center affiliated with Northridge Hospital. He is board certified in Radiology.
Dr Bui attended the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, where he obtained both his undergraduate and medical degrees. He completed his residency in radiology at the University of Colorado Health Sciences Center and subsequently took part in a fellowship in musculoskeletal radiology at the Brigham and Women’s Hospital in Boston. Following his fellowship, Dr. Bui was recruited by the University of Colorado, where he held a faculty position as an associate professor of radiology for two years.
In addition to Dr. Bui’s expertise in musculoskeletal imaging, he has extensive experience with musculoskeletal interventional procedures such as US/CT/MR guided-biopsy, and spinal interventional procedures including epidural injections, facet blocks and sacroiliac joint injections.
