A recent special featuring UCSF's Dr. Pratik Mukherjee, M.D., Ph. D., explored the difficulties in using medical imaging technologies to research the effects of concussions on the human brain, focusing on those sustained through athletic injuries.

UCSF Leads the Way in Neonatal Neuroimaging with MRI

Brain imaging, while crucial, is very difficult to perform on newborn babies. UCSF has pioneered the use of MRI to look for evidence of abnormality or injury on newborns.

Study: Brain Volume and Alzheimer’s Disease

I recently co-authored a study, published in the June issue of Radiology, that found that brain volume may indicate pre-clinical Alzheimer’s. I thought I’d talk a little bit about this disease and what my research was trying to accomplish.
