Chairman of Radiology Sanjiv Sam Gambhir, MD, PhD

Molecular Spies for Early Disease Detection

At TEDxStanford 2012: Illumination, Radiology Chair, Sanjiv Sam Gambhir, MD, PhD discusses developing new molecular imaging systems and techniques to illuminate tumors and acquire data on more than two dozen tumor-related functions simultaneously.

Welcome to Stanford's Innovative New Center for Medical Imaging

As Stanford Radiology Former Chairman Gary M. Glazer, MD, explains, Stanford Medicine Imaging Center in Palo Alto is unique because of the subspecialty expertise of our radiologists, state-of-the-art technology, and patient-centric facilities, which allow us to detect and treat disease at the earliest possible phase. As part of the Stanford Department of Radiology, our 10,000 square foot Center also benefits from the cutting-edge research of our scientists, who are working to transform today's laboratory discoveries into tomorrow's innovative therapies.

Stanford Medicine: Pioneers in Interventional Radiology

Stanford Interventional Radiology is one of a few institutions on the West Coast to offer innovative and minimally invasive image-guided treatments for a wide variety of diseases, ranging from tumors to blocked arteries. Interventional Radiology Section Chief Lawrence "Rusty" Hofmann, MD, describes three areas of particular focus at Stanford: interventional oncology; deep venous thrombosis (DVT); and peripheral arterial disease.

Stanford Interventional Radiology: A Cancer Survivor's Story

We offer amazing new cancer treatments for our patients through our Interventional Radiology Program. Section Chief Lawrence "Rusty" Hofmann, MD, explains how our interventional radiologists use image guidance to target a cancerous tumor with great accuracy and employ cutting-edge therapies to kill the tumor without surgery through treatments such as radioembolization and chemoembolization. As a former patient describes, these revolutionary treatments are transforming lives.

Stanford Interventional Radiology: A Definitive Treatment for Deep Venous Thrombosis

Deep venous thrombosis (DVT) is one area of expertise of our interventional radiologists, who use image guidance to locate and dissolve blood clots. As Section Chief Lawrence "Rusty" Hofmann, MD, details, our leading-edge treatments can remove the clot and restore blood flow very quickly, with the patient often resuming normal activities within 24 hours. After being treated for deep venous thrombosis by our radiologists, a former patient chronicles his swift recovery from a major blood clot in his leg.

Transforming Medicine--Innovations in MRI

Our Department is one of the leading centers in the research and clinical application of 3T magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), which allows radiologists to uncover disease and abnormalities that are invisible when imaged by other methods, such as computed tomography (CT). Former Neuroradiology Section Chief Scott Atlas, MD, characterizes some of the advances in state-of-the-art 3T MRI at Stanford and its tremendous impact on patients, especially those with brain and musculoskeletal abnormalities. Our scientists are working on future breakthroughs in 3T MRI, such as imaging function and metabolism; developing diagnostic criteria for diseases; merging medical imaging with molecular biology; and screening patients for disease in its very early stages.
