About Stanford Radiology

Welcome to Stanford Radiology

We are committed to excellence in patient care and being your partner to a healthy life. We are inventing the future of Medical Diagnostics, Biomedical Imaging, and minimally invasive therapies. Finally, we are training the next generation of physician and scientific leaders to seed the rest of the world. 

With a truly outstanding faculty and staff, we continue to push the boundaries of what Radiology as a field will become in the years to come. “Science without borders” will be one of the key themes during my chairmanship. This will be accomplished through creating significant bridges to scientific and clinical activities throughout the medical school, affiliated hospitals, and across the Stanford campus.

About Us

The people and programs comprising Stanford Radiology are world-renowned. Stanford Radiology continues to 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, together with industry collaborators, are creating new methods for the early detection of cancer using molecular imaging, nanotechnology, and systems biology. They also continue to develop improved and more targeted methods for least-invasive, and compassionate cancer patient care.

Ultimately, Stanford Radiology plans to 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. Anticipating better tools for implementing personalized medicine, we are starting to develop a patient-centric approach to radiology that will greatly increase the interaction between radiologists and their patients. In this way, radiologists will no longer be invisible, behind-the-scenes, contributors to their patients, but will be ‘front and center’ members of their patients' health care teams.

To Make a Gift

Maintaining Stanford's excellence depends more than ever on private philanthropy. Charitable gifts to the Stanford University Department of Radiology provide critical support for innovative research as well as new and advanced patient care and services. Your support enables us to advance promising new research and treatment programs, train future generations of physicians and scientists, expand vital support services and share our knowledge with the community.

There are many ways to contribute to Stanford University. Medical Center Development has detailed information about all of the different giving opportunities.
