The Precision Imaging of Cancer & Therapy (PICT) Program has announced the date, time and location of their Annual Retreat. It will take place on January 23, 2019 from 12 pm – 6 pm at the Presidio Officers' Club located on 50 Moraga Ave in San Francisco, CA.

With complimentary backgrounds in basic and clinical neuroscience and a shared desire to ask (and answer) big questions, when Drs. Desikan and Sugrue met in the Neuroradiology fellowship training program at UCSF they quickly became both friends and research partners. Today as junior faculty in the Department of Radiology and Biomedical Imaging they jointly run the Laboratory for Precision Neuroimaging at UCSF.

There were quite a few highlights from UCSF Radiology at the Radiology Society of North America’s 104th Scientific Assembly and Annual Meeting.

Rahul Desikan, MD, PhD is now battling amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), one of the diseases that he studies. He and his wife shared their emotional story on Good Morning America.

Randall Hawkins, MD, PhD, friend and long-time faculty member in the UCSF Department of Radiology and Biomedical Imaging has passed away unexpectedly.

Pneumothorax can be a life-threatening emergency. Researchers created an automated method of screening chest x-rays which can result in more rapid review and earlier treatment. Findings were published in PLOS Medicine.
