UCSF Library's Radiologic Imaging Laboratory Exhibit Now Live!

Visionary Bioengineering: The Radiologic Imaging Laboratory Archive
UCSF Library, 530 Parnassus Avenue, 3rd floor, San Francisco, CA
Through April 2017
Free and open to the public during library hours

Visit the UCSF Library and view a “sneak peek” exhibit on the history of the Radiologic Imaging Laboratory (RIL). The RIL was founded in the late 1970s by a team of UCSF scientists and engineers. The team’s goal was to create a clinically viable diagnostic tool using nuclear magnetic resonance imaging, later called MRI. Over the course of 25 years, the lab developed innovative MRI technology that transformed the way doctors diagnose and treat patients worldwide.

Visitors to the exhibit, which runs through April 2017, will have the opportunity to view images and original documents from the RIL records and learn how the lab combined entrepreneurship and biotechnology research. Join the UCSF Library again in the coming year for the full exhibit that will further explore the RIL’s growth and technological discoveries.

Stay tuned for more information on the development of nuclear magnetic resonance and other notable advances in the field of radiology, coming soon to the Department of Radiology & Biomedical Imaging blog
