A Recap of UCSF Radiology at SNMMI 2019

The UC San Francisco Department of Radiology and Biomedical Imaging had a strong presence at the recent Society for Nuclear Medicine and Molecular Imaging (SNMMI) Annual Meeting held June 22-25, 2019 in Anaheim, CA. 

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.

Results of Phase I of CTT1057 Human Clinical Trial for Prostate Cancer Now Published

Scientists at UC San Francisco have just conducted the first-in-human Phase I study of CTT1057 in patients with localized and metastatic prostate cancer.

New Study Points to Promising Prognostication for Assessing Diffused Cardiac Allograft Vasculopathy

UCSF Imaging’s Miguel Hernandez Pampaloni, MD, recently authored a study on PET imaging using regadenoson as a stressor to measure reduced myocardal and coronary blood flow for patients after orthotopic heart transplants.

Using Imageable Biomarkers in Drug Development

As medicine has transitioned into the precision era, the scientific community appreciates how important it is to treat patients individually.

Empowering Patients with Innovation

UCSF's PET/MRI technology provides most detailed and accurate information in a single procedure to empower the patient and medical team to make the best treatment decisions. 

 

UCSF Research Technologist Discusses Cutting-Edge PET/MRI Technology

UCSF offers PET/MRI technology with state-of-the-art, highly sensitive detectors for less radiation dose to our patients. By combining these two innovative tools, we are able to achieve optimal imaging for detecting early stages of abnormal cell growth

Hybrid Imaging and the Relationship Between Physics and PET/MRI

Hybrid imaging is the fusion of two or more imaging modalities to form a new technique, leading to a new or more powerful modality.  For Dr. Youngho Seo, PhD, Associate Professor in Residence and Director of Nuclear Imaging Physics at the UCSF Department of Radiology, working with hybrid imaging led to work with PET/MRI.

Guiding Cancer Treatment with Molecular Imaging

Chief of Nuclear Medicine Dr. Miguel Pampaloni, M.D., Ph.D., discusses combining positron emission tomography (PET) with computed tomography (CT) in oncology.

Cardiac Imaging and Chest Pain: Questions for Patients

I came across this article and thought it would make a good basis for a blog post about what to ask your doctor if you are experiencing intermittent chest pain. Some questions that came to mind include, “When should I worry about chest pain?” and “How can my doctor use medical tests to come to a final answer about my actual condition?”
