Recent Outbreaks of Vaping-Related Illnesses and Lung Imaging

Vaping-related lung illnesses and deaths have made headlines in the health and science arena recently as the number of cases of severe lung disease is increasing on a seemingly daily basis, with 1299 confirmed cases and 26 deaths as of October 8th, 2019. In California, more than 100 cases have been reported, with 3 deaths. Illnesses have appeared to mostly effect…

A New Deep Learning Model Aids in Diagnosis and Health Outcomes of Hip Fractures

A New Deep Learning Model Aids in Diagnosis and Health Outcomes of Hip Fractures

A hip fracture can cause life-threatening complications. Accurate diagnosis is essential when evaluating the patient’s overall health, medical condition and treatment. Treatment for hip fractures typically involves a combination of surgery, rehabilitation and medication. Overall, this involves a collaborative effort between radiologists and orthopedists. A team of radiologists and orthopedists from the Center for Intelligent Imaging, or ci2, at UCSF recently…

A Deep Learning Model Predicts Total Knee Replacement (TKR) from MRI

A Deep Learning Model Predicts Total Knee Replacement (TKR) from MRI

Knee osteoarthritis (OA) is a common musculoskeletal disorder in the U.S. with an incident rate ranging from 14 to 30 million. Overall annual arthritis-related medical expenditures are nearly $140 million, and hip and knee OA together are the 11th highest contributor to global disability. When diagnosed at early stages, lifestyle interventions such as exercise and weight loss can slow OA…

When is it necessary to do an MRI?

When is it necessary to do an MRI?

Modern methods of diagnosing diseases have added to the list of those that can be detected at an early stage. Many of them are classified as highly radiated, which affects the body accordingly, but MRI has its own advantage in this regard. This is one of the safest and most modern methods of studying the human body, in the field…

The Future of Molecular Imaging and Prostate Cancer

The Future of Molecular Imaging and Prostate Cancer

Because treatment for prostate cancer is highly individualized, molecular imaging technologies are helping to improve the ways in which prostate cancer is diagnosed and treated. Molecular imaging, a field where a radiotracer is used as the imaging agent, is a useful tool for both detecting and treating prostate cancer. There are several radiotracers that are used to image patients with…

Advanced Neuroimaging Research Improves Quality of Life for People with Parkinson’s and Their Families

Advanced Neuroimaging Research Improves Quality of Life for People with Parkinson’s and Their Families

April is Parkinson’s Awareness Month! Parkinson’s disease occurs when brain cells that make dopamine − a chemical that coordinates movement − are damaged. It is a lifelong and progressive disease, meaning symptoms slowly worsen over time. Even though broad paths of similarity are observed among individuals with Parkinson’s as the disease progresses, Parkinson’s does not affect everyone the same way. The rate of progression…

Smartphone Dependence, Brain Connectivity and Depressive Symptoms in Adolescents

Smartphone Dependence, Brain Connectivity and Depressive Symptoms in Adolescents

In 2018 a large nationally representative survey study alerted readers to the potential link between use of smartphones and increases in depressive and suicide-related symptoms among U.S. adolescents. To help develop interventions to address this important problem, Olga Tymofiyeva, PhD, assistant professor in the UC San Francisco Department of Radiology and Biomedical Imaging, along with her colleagues, embarked on the quest of trying…

The Role of Radiologists in the Diagnosis and Management of HHT

The Role of Radiologists in the Diagnosis and Management of HHT

Down syndrome is one of the most common genetic conditions in the U.S. and Canada. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), about 6,000 babies with Down syndrome are born in the U.S. each year. When compared with the general population, children born with Down syndrome have a higher risk of developing multiple health conditions, including acute myeloid…
