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 Radiology Tech Discusses Cutting-Edge Technology and Patient Care

Mark How, radiology tech working with patients using the PET/MRI device, shares his perspective on UCSF's cutting-edge technology and the high quality of patient care.

New Technology Improves Image Quality, Enabling More Effective Treatment

PET/MRI is a hybrid imaging technology that is serving critical diagnostic and treatment purposes for current UCSF patients as well as playing an important role in research for future patients.

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.

PET/MRI's Role in Reducing Radiation

PET/MRI provides high-quality images while reducing patient exposure to radiation. This combined technology is used for the diagnosis, staging and treatment of a variety of conditions, including cancer, neurological, oncological and musculoskeletal diseases.
