Sr Res Scientist-Physical, Rad/Pediatric Radiology
Bio I graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Elecrical & Electronics Engineering from Boğaziçi University, Istanbul, Turkey and got my M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in Electical Engineering at Stanford University under the supervision of Dr. Roland Bammer. Currently, I am working as a research associate in the department of Radiology at Stanford University. My primary research interest is the detection and correction of patient motion during magnetic resonance imaging experiments usıng an optical tracking system (i.e., a camera) whıch is installed inside the MR scanner bore. My eventual purpose is to implement this motion tracking system in a clinical setting, which will improve the MR image quality especially for certain patient populations (stroke patients, elderly and children) and will eliminate the need of anesthesia in pediatric population. I also worked on improving the data quality for diffusion-weighted and diffusion-tensor imaging via advanced reconstruction routines, and examined the benefits of such methods on fiber tractography.

Rachelle Bitton, PhD
Physical Sci Res Assoc, Rad/Radiological Sciences Laboratory
Current Role at Stanford •Original research focusing on applications of MR guided Focused Ultrasound (MRgFUS) for ablative treatments of cancer and trans-cranial neurosurgical treatment of tremor.
•Developing new MRI imaging strategies and pulse sequence development of non-ablative applications of focused ultrasound, including MR Acoustic Radiation Force Imaging.
•Medical Physicist including ultrasound treatment planning and MRI imaging specialist of multiple ongoing human clinical trials, as well as clinical treatments at SHC, to image, treat, and monitor MRgFUS of bone metastases, soft tissue tumors of the extremities, uterine fibroids, and trans-cranial MRgFUS treatment of essential tremor.
•Bridge technical and clinical communication as a go between in collaborations with clinicians, interventional radiologists, imaging technologists, medical device companies, and research scientists, graduate students, and faculty.
