Making San Francisco the Safest Place to Have a Stroke

"I’m not the first person to say it: In ischemic stroke, time lost is brain lost. Each minute of impaired blood flow to the brain kills more brain tissue. More dead brain tissue means greater physical and mental impairment going forward, and, of course, it can also mean death. By quickly treating stroke, we save lives and vastly improve quality of life." - Steven Hetts, MD

Stroke Treatment at the UCSF

Stroke is the fourth leading cause of death nationwide. To combat stroke, UCSF neurointerventional radiologists use advanced imaging methods to treat those affected by it as well as to help identify those at risk before stroke occurs.

Committed to Improving Care

Dr. Christine Glastonbury's academic and research interests are in the areas of head and neck malignancies and the detection of nodal diseases. She is also driven to improve cancer treatment teams by asking the hard questions about the role of radiologists in diagnoses. 


Relieving Back Pain

Sharmila Majumdar, PhD, focuses her clinical and research work on finding the sources of pain for many areas of the body, including the mysterious origins of lower back pain.



Radiology without Radiation

Matthew Bucknor, MD, is a leader in his work on HIFU, high intensity focused ultrasound, an imaging tool that can eradicate abnormal tissue without radiation.
