Department of Radiology & Biomedical Imaging


Message from the Chair

Christopher Hess, Chair Dept of Radiology

I'm delighted to share with you our most recent Images magazine. As always, the collected stories and reports feature our faculty and staff and their outstanding accomplishments in teaching, healing, and discovery. 

Change, both dramatic and gradual, has shaped each of us and our work these past few years. Together, we've welcomed new colleagues, invested in new imaging resources, launched new research initiatives and clinical programs, designed new ways to work and sustain our culture, celebrated milestones, and adapted to economic and political forces beyond our immediate control. While experiencing changes in the world around us, we’ve challenged the status quo and sought opportunities to improve how we do virtually everything as intentional, thoughtful agents of change. What’s remained constant: we continue to excel in our clinical, research, and education missions.

As you peruse this issue of Images, I hope you will be inspired by our people and their work. We are #UCSFProud.
