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, we are able to introduce leading-edge imaging solutions and technology to other research communities and into clinical practice.

Our 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:

Stanford Radiology has been among the top ten NIH-funded radiology departments each year since 2005. Please visit the Academy of Radiology Research for a complete list of 2011 NIH funding to radiology departments nationwide.

The Academy publishes total funding for each institution. As a leading academic radiology department in the United States, we believe it worthwhile to view total funding corrected for the number of faculty in each department. The data in the table below summarize, in order, 1) institution name; 2) funding/faculty; 3) faculty count; 4) 2011 NIH funding; and 5) Academy ranking.

Our excellent team, including faculty, staff, and trainees, excels at maintaining Stanford Radiology as a strong academic leader with recognized excellence in clinical and basic research. For details of NIH funding, please search NIH RePORTER for Stanford University Radiology.
