The Department of Radiology and Biomedical Imaging’s Annual Imaging Research Symposium “provides a snapshot of the diversity and depth of the excellence in research in our department. It brings the achievements of high school, college, medical and graduate students, post-docs, fellows, residents and faculty to the forefront,” according to Sharmila Majumdar, PhD, vice-chair of research.
The Imaging Research Symposium is open to the UCSF and scientific communities and features oral presentations as well as a scientific poster session highlighting the innovative work being done in the department. A variety of topics are covered including cancer, neurodegenerative disease, musculoskeletal disease and cardiovascular disease. Information is provided on UCSF imaging 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, recognizing the research of an outstanding radiology and biomedical imaging graduate student or postdoctoral scholar, is presented each year at the conclusion of the symposium.
