Professor of Radiology (Diagnostic Radiology) at the Stanford University Medical Center, Emeritus
Current Research and Scholarly Interests As a professor in the Medical Center Line, my primary investigative interest has been in clinical neuroradiology. This encompasses spinal cord and spine disease, degenerative and demyelinating diseases of the central nervous system, strokes and infarction, and chronic epilepsy syndromes. Facial and head and neck vascular malformations and hemangiomas have been a focus of interest for many years, with collaborative projects involving dermatology and functional restoration services.
Professor of Radiology (General Radiology) and of Medicine (Biomedical Informatics Research) at the Stanford University Medical Center
Current Research and Scholarly Interests I am interested in improving the accuracy and reliability of imaging communication. My research focuses primarily on information produced by radiologists, rather than automated analysis of clinical images themselves. My laboratory is developing systems and standards to facilitate structured data capture during routine image interpretation. We also are developing natural language processing methods to extract concepts from the narrative text that remains a part of the radiology report.
Postdoctoral Research fellow, Molecular Imaging Program at Stanford
Current Research and Scholarly Interests Dr. Lee is interested in developing algorithms for image reconstruction and optimization in medical imaging. Her special interests are in developing motion detection method during PET acquisition, motion correction for cardiac PET imaging, MR-Based PET attenuation correction, PSF modeling, and Monte-Carlo simulation.
Postdoctoral Research fellow, Radiology
Current Research and Scholarly Interests My research interest is in cavitation-based therapeutic modalities enabled by focused ultrasound produced by either laser excitation or piezoelectric transducers, with an aim of treating diseased tissues in non-invasive and targeted manners. I am currently working on image-guided ultrasound/microbubble-meditated drug delivery with an emphasis on passive cavitation imaging for monitoring drug delivery (This is a joint project between Prof. Willmann's and Prof. Dahl's group).
Professor of Radiology (General Radiology) at the Stanford University Medical Center
Current Research and Scholarly Interests High-resolution computed tomography of the thorax, particularly its application in the setting of acute lung disease in the immunocompromised host; quantitative assessment of abnormalities using thin-section CT; and enhancement characteristics of lung cancers on CT and MRI
Associate Professor of Mechanical Engineering and, by courtesy, of Bioengineering and of Radiology (Radiological Sciences Laboratory)
Current Research and Scholarly Interests My lab's research involves the function, degeneration and repair of musculoskeletal soft tissues, with a focus on meniscal fibrocartilage and articular cartilage. We are particularly interested in the complex interactions between biophysical and biochemical cues in controlling cell behavior, the roles of these interactions in degenerative conditions such as osteoarthritis, and development of tissue engineered 3D model systems for studying physical influences on primary and progenitor cells.
