Each year in late November, UCSF Department of Radiology and Biomedical Imaging faculty, staff, and trainees attend the RSNA Annual Meeting at McCormick Place in  Chicago. 

UCSF researchers Harry (Shenghuan) Sun, Justin Torok, Daren Ma, and Ashish Raj, PhD, with Christopher Mezias of Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory, published “Spatial cell-type enrichment predicts mouse brain connectivity” in Cell Reports. 

Leighton Hinkley, PhD, first author of "Distinct neurophysiology during nonword repetition in logopenic and non-fluent variants of primary progressive aphasia" in Human Brain Mapping uses advanced imaging techniques to better understand neurodegenerative diseases. The research focused on Primary Progressive Aphasia (PPA), a condition within the Alzheimer's disease spectrum. In a recent interview Hinkley, a neuroscientist at the University of California, San Francisco (UCSF), explains his team's neuroimaging research.

Imaging scientists presented ground-breaking radiology research and biomedical imaging innovations at the 20th Annual UCSF Radiology Imaging Research Symposium on Wednesday, Nov. 15, at Genentech Hall in Mission Bay.

Each year, during the first week of November, we observe National Radiologic Technology Week (NRTW) to recognize and celebrate our imaging technologists.

UCSF Medical Center’s sonographers have been very hard at work. The department encourages staff to obtain additional certifications to enhance patient care and several have succeeded in becoming Registered Musculoskeletal Sonographers (RMSKS™).
