Mark How, radiology tech working with patients using the PET/MRI device, shares his perspective on UCSF's cutting-edge technology and the high quality of patient care.

Getting preventive care is one of the most important steps you can take to manage your health. Screening can detect early cancers when the diseases are potentially more treatable and curable. 

UCSF’s Alzheimer’s Disease Neuroimaging Initiative, the world’s largest observational study on Alzheimer’s disease, is pioneering the use of amyloid PET imaging as a diagnostic biomarker for a disease that afflicts over 5 million Americans.

When pain is precisely diagnosed and localized, we can treat it selectively. Through research and patient feedback, we're working to combat pain. 

PET/MRI is a hybrid imaging technology that is serving critical diagnostic and treatment purposes for current UCSF patients as well as playing an important role in research for future patients.

Our research with advanced imaging aims to help the children suffering from juvenile arthritis that we are treating today, as well as children in the future.
