Advancing Focused Ultrasound Technology for Musculoskeletal Applications and Cancer Treatment

Once Matthew Bucknor, MD realized the full potential of focused ultrasound technology, he knew that he wanted to help drive its advancement moving forward. Now, he is a lead radiologist at UCSF Radiology in performing focused ultrasound treatments and research.

Study Results from the UCSF Ci2 Suggest Deep Learning Methods Can Help Grade ACL Injuries

A team from the UCSF Center for Intelligent Imaging (ci2) developed a deep learning pipeline for diagnostic worklist prioritization and generalizability in assessing anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) lesions.

A Deep Learning Model Predicts Total Knee Replacement (TKR) from MRI

This study from the UCSF Center for Intelligent Imaging (ci2) is a great example of the use of deep learning methods for new discovery.

A New Deep Learning Model Aids in Diagnosis and Health Outcomes of Hip Fractures

A team of radiologists and orthopedists from the Center for Intelligent Imaging, or Ci2, at UCSF recently investigated the feasibility of automatic identificaiton and classification of hip fractures using deep learning. 

A New Deep Learning Approach for Image Analysis of Osteoarthritis

The purpose of the study from UCSF's MQIR group was to develop a multitask, deep learning model for grading hip osteoarthritis features on radiographs and compare its performance to that of attending-level radiologists.

Sharmila Majumdar, PhD Receives Important NIH HEAL Initiative Grant for The Back-Pain Consortium (BACPAC) Research Program to Address Chronic Low Back Pain

The UC San Francisco Department of Radiology and Biomedical Imaging is pleased to announce that Sharmila Majumdar, PhD has been awarded a research grant for the Back Pain Consortium (BACPAC) Research Program by the National Institutes of Health (NIH) to tackle the national opioid crisis.

Identifying Risk Factors for Early Osteoporosis Screening

Overall, many people are unaware of the importance of osteoporosis screening and preventive measures that can be taken. Regular screening can diagnose osteoporosis and other bone problems early.

Pioneering a Range of New Uses for High-Intensity Focused Ultrasound (HIFU)

Using high-intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU), Matthew Bucknor, MD and his team are finding new ways to treat patients with uterine fibroids and bone metastasis.

Combining Advanced Imaging Techniques with Loading Biomechanics to Slow, Prevent and Treat Osteoarthritis

Richard Souza, PhD, PT, and his team are working with UCSF radiologists on lower extremities biomechanics research to change loading profiles and intervene in the osteoarthritis disease process.

Translational Research to Improve Musculoskeletal Health and Well-Being

The research of Sharmila Majumdar, PhD, focuses on osteoarthritis, osteoporosis and lower back pain, particularly on quantitative musculoskeletal imaging image processing and artificial intelligence applied to the musculoskeletal system.
