Christine Glastonbury, MD, has been appointed vice chair for academic affairs for the UC San Francisco Department of Radiology and Biomedical Imaging.

The cancer burden in Sub-Saharan Africa is growing. A multi-disciplinary collaboration between UCSF, MUHAS, and Ocean Road Cancer Institute (OCRI) has formed to focus on global cancer research.

Recent studies support UCSF Radiology's recommendation that annual mammography screening begin at age 40 for women of low or average risk. Mammography can also lead to another health benefit—an opportunity for women to receive lung cancer screening, if eligible.

Sharmila Majumdar, PhD was recently selected by UC San Francisco (UCSF) Chancellor Sam Hawgood, MBBS and Dean of the UCSF School of Medicine Talmadge King, MD as the next holder of the Margaret Hart Surbeck Distinguished Professorship in Advanced Imaging in the department.

Preventive imaging exams are designed to detect cancer and noncancerous health conditions in their early stages, when diseases are more treatable and curable. While physicians keep current with preventive care guidelines and recommend and encourage patients to have appropriate screenings, only a small portion of eligible patients receive recommended screenings. 

UCSF Radiology is pleased to announce the opening of our new reception and holding areas at our Parnassus facility.
