Current Research and Scholarly Interests The management of individuals suffering from chronic pain is unfortunately limited by poor diagnostic tests and therapies. Our research group is interested in 'imaging pain' by using novel imaging techniques to study peripheral nociception and inflammation with the goal of accurately identifying the location of pain generators. We are developing new approaches with positron emission tomography (PET) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) (PET/MRI) and are currently in clinical trials.
Sr Res Scientist-Physical, 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.
Postdoctoral Research Fellow, Radiological Sciences Laboratory
Bio Dr. Marianne Black is a Postdoctoral Fellow in Radiology in the IMMERS (Incubator for Medical Mixed and Extended Reality), BMR (Body Magnetic Resonance) and JOINT (Joint and Osteoarthritis Imaging with Novel Technology) groups. Dr. Black currently works with with Drs. Brian Hargreaves, Bruce Daniel and Garry Gold. Her postdoctoral research is focused on imaging to detect and treat musculoskeletal disease. She is developing immersive mixed reality tools to improve surgical outcomes in orthopaedics.
Dr. Black?s PhD research under Drs. Marc Levenston, Brian Hargreaves and Garry Gold focused on the application and development of novel methods and analysis techniques for quantitative knee imaging using MRI and CT. Her work included leading a study measuring quantitative MRI parameters of ACL-injured subjects, and her analysis methods that built upon Dr. Hargreaves group?s previous analysis methods showed the ability to differentiate ACL-injured and healthy cartilage as early as 3-months post-surgery. Prior to attending Stanford, she completed her MASc at the University of British Columbia in Biomedical Engineering under Dr. Dave Wilson. Dr. Black's research studied the effect of wedge and slope in medical opening high tibial osteotomy on joint kinematics and tibiofemoral joint contact pressure. She also co-founded Arbutus Medical during this time, which develops orthopaedic medical devices for low-resource hospitals.
