Stanford Radiology faculty push the boundaries of innovation in physics and engineering to develop cutting-edge methods for enhanced anatomic and functional imaging. Our diverse multidisciplinary teams of scientists play a very important role in the development of personalized medicine by moving advances from the laboratories to the clinic for improved patient-centric care.
Virtual reality helps surgery
Gina Milner’s successful surgery, the first at Packard Children’s to use the new imaging technology, is one of many examples of how virtual-reality techniques are now helping patients.
Stanford Medicine focuses on diagnostics
Researchers in the field of diagnostics are taking advantage of advances in biomedical research, engineering and computer technology to make diagnostics more informative and less invasive.
The way of the nanoparticle
A growing field called nanotechnology is allowing researchers to manipulate molecules and structures much smaller than a single cell to enhance our ability to see, monitor and destroy cancer cells in the body.
Mom’s voice lights up kids' brains
A far wider swath of brain areas is activated when children hear their mothers than when they hear other voices, and this brain response predicts a child’s social communication ability, a new study finds.
Radiologist Gerald Friedland dies
The former chief of the Veterans Affairs medical center in Palo Alto was remembered as a hard-working, generous mentor to generations of medical residents, and a caring husband and father.
