Stanford Radiology plays an important role in the development of personalized medicine by moving advances from the laboratories to the clinic for improved patient-centric care.
Throughout its history, the Stanford Department of Radiology has worked continuously to develop the infrastructure necessary to expand interdisciplinary research efforts in anatomic imaging, instrumentation development, molecular imaging, nanotechnology, information sciences, systems biology, and interventional therapeutic advances. Coupling this rich biomedical imaging foundation with an energetic, forward thinking, and creative faculty and staff, the department is able to introduce leading-edge imaging solutions and technology to other research communities and into clinical practice.
The Department is made up of three primary Research Sections with each providing specific areas of focus but all collaborating in a highly interdisciplinary environment. These three Sections (with year established) are:
- Radiological Sciences Laboratory (RSL) (established 1990)
- Molecular Imaging Program at Stanford (MIPS) (established 2003)
- Information Sciences in Imaging at Stanford (ISIS) (established 2008)
Stanford Radiology has been among the top ten NIH-funded radiology departments each year since 2005.
