In a video from last year’s Mini Medical School for the Public held by the UCSF Osher Center for Integrative Medicine, Maureen Kohi, MD, an Interventional Radiologist who specializes in women’s health and interventions, discusses how she treats women with symptomatic uterine fibroids using high intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU) or magnetic resonance-guided focused ultrasound (MRgFUS).

For John Kurhanewicz, PhD, and other researchers at UCSF, it’s important to work in an environment that not only supports their research, but provides the funding necessary for equipment and technological resources.

Last month, community members, researchers and providers from around the Bay Area came together for an important event on hereditary breast cancer and the rapid advances in research, coordinated teamwork, and the continuum of care offered at UCSF.

In Dr. Sabrina Ronen’s lab, researchers are focusing on developing new, non-invasive imaging biomarker indicators to address multiple types of cancers–from breast cancer, prostate cancer and higher-grade aggressive glioblastoma brain tumors to lower-grade, somewhat less aggressive tumors of the brain.
