Tackling Prostate Cancer with Innovative Imaging Techniques

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.

Enabling Precise and Individualized Cancer Treatment with Biomarkers

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.

Research Interest Groups at UCSF: Connecting Faculty, Creating Legacy

The UCSF Research Interest Groups (RIGs) are a success story for many reasons. In this post, hear from Dr. Vigneron and other members of the Research Interest Group to understand what makes RIGs work:

Using Augmented Reality Applications to Visualize 3D Radiology Images

Dr. Jesse Courtier is currently working with Bencin Studios to develop an imaging application for Microsoft HoloLens, the first self-contained holographic computer, enabling users to engage with digital content and interact with holograms in the surrounding real world.

Radiology’s Role in Cross-Department Collaboration

From oncology to cardiology, Alzheimer’s disease to stroke, imaging faculty have an impact on nearly all the conditions that have research or clinical relevance to the UCSF campus.
