Imaging Research Symposium

The Radiology and Biomedical Imaging Research Symposium is open to all in the UCSF and scientific communities and features speaker presentations and a scientific poster session highlighting the innovative work being done in the department. A broad spectrum of topics are covered including cancer, neurodegenerative disease, musculoskeletal disease and cardiovascular disease. Information is provided on research in the areas of CT, MR, PET, SPECT, MEG, EEG, optical imaging, and ultrasound. In addition, medical informatics, and MR/CT contrast agent development are addressed.

The Hasegawa Award, honoring the memory of Bruce Hasegawa, PhD, recognizes the research of an outstanding Radiology and Biomedical Imaging graduate student or postdoctoral scholar, and is presented each year at the conclusion of the symposium.
