Hepatitis B Surveillance and Treatment in the UCSF Department of Radiology and Biomedical Imaging

Radiologists at UCSF are actively involved in every facet of hepatitis B care, from screening to treatment of complications.

New Applications of Dual-Energy CT (DECT)

Dual-energy CT (DECT) is not new, in fact, says Benjamin Yeh, MD, it has been around just as long as computed tomography (CT) has. What is new is that CT scanners can capture DECT quickly and with good image quality. He discusses new applications of DECT along with his lab's translational research group focusing on the exploration and development of novel CT techniques.

Scientists at UCSF Study Impact of 68Ga-PSMA-11 PET on Post Radical Prostatectomy (RP) Salvage Radiotherapy

Recently, scientists from the UC San Francisco Departments of Radiology and Biomedical Imaging, Urology and Radiation Oncology came together to study the impact of 68Ga-PSMA-11 PET on post radical prostatectomy (RP) salvage radiotherapy.

Researchers Assess the Accuracy of 68Ga-PSMA-11 PET in Localizing Prostate Cancer

Scientists at UCSF and UCLA designed a single-arm prospective trial on 635 patients with biochemically recurrent prostate cancer to assess the accuracy of 68Ga-PSMA-11 PET.

New Colorectal Cancer Screening Guidelines from the ACS: What You Should Know

 New screening guidelines from the American Cancer Society (ACS) recommend tests such as virtual colonoscopy (CT colonography) every five years for those of average risk beginning at age 45.

Translating Advanced Prostate Cancer Research into Patient Care

John Kurhanewicz, PhD, professor in residence and director of the UCSF Body Research Interest Group, the Biomedical NMR lab, and the Kurhanewicz Laboratory, is involved in cutting-edge research to more accurately and efficiently detect and characterize prostate cancers at early stages.

3-D Holographic Imaging: A Groundbreaking New Way to Diagnose Colorectal Cancer

For Dr. Yee, virtual holography CT colonography (CTC) is the latest phase in a two-decade research career devoted to detecting colorectal cancer at earlier, more lifesaving stages.

Utilizing Technology to Better Patient Service

David Avrin, MD, PhD, has embraced technology’s vital role in the field of radiology since the beginning of his career.

USPSTF Colorectal Cancer Screening Recommendations Include CT Colonography

Dr. Yee is a nationally recognized expert in CT colonography and, through her position as chair of the American College of Radiology’s Colon Cancer Committee, has fought on behalf of annual preventative colorectal cancer screening with insurance reimbursement for CT Colonography in patients age 50 and older.

Making the Patient Experience Technically Accurate, Safe and Relaxing

Lisa Rooney, a member of the CT or CAT radiology team, works closely with patients during their kidney tumor ablation, among other procedures, ensuring safety and accuracy are maximized, while giving the patient the best possible experience.
