Assistant Professor of Radiology (Pediatric Radiology)
Current Research and Scholarly Interests Ultrasonic beamforming, imaging methods, systems, and devices.
Associate Professor of Radiology (General Radiology) and, by courtesy, of Pediatrics (Hematology/Oncology)
Current Research and Scholarly Interests As a physician-scientist involved in the care of patients and investigating novel pediatric molecular imaging technologies, my goal is to develop innovative, safe, accurate and efficient imaging solutions to significant problems in disease diagnosis. My research team works on novel cellular imaging techniques for improved detection and characterization of malignant tumors in pediatric patients, for the diagnosis of immune system disorders and for in vivo evaluation of stem cell transplants.
Professor of Radiology (General Radiology) and, by courtesy, of Bioengineering
Current Research and Scholarly Interests 1. MRI of Breast Cancer, particularly new techniques. Currently being explored are techniques including ultra high spatial resolution MRI and contrast-agent-free detection of breast tumors.
2. MRI-guided interventions, especially MRI-guided cryosurgery of prostate cancer
Postdoctoral Research Fellow, Radiology
Current Research and Scholarly Interests My research interest is understanding the mechanisms behind cognitive dysfunction in neurological diseases and finding innovative treatment strategies for it. My current focus is on studying the neurobiology of cognitive dysfunction in Down Syndrome and developing a therapeutic strategy for the same.
Guido A. Davidzon
Clinical Assistant Professor, Radiology - Rad/Nuclear Medicine
Bio Dr. Guido A. Davidzon is a physician scientist board certified in Nuclear Medicine. He is an attending physician in Nuclear Medicine and Molecular Imaging at Stanford Health Care.
He graduated with honors from medical school in Argentina and completed an internship at Yale University New-Haven Hospital in Connecticut. He did his residency and was chief resident at Stanford Health Care. He completed a research fellowship in mitochondrial diseases at Columbia University in New York and, a U.S. National Library of Medicine Award supported, Biomedical Informatics fellowship at Massachusetts General Hospital in conjunction with a Science Masters at MIT.
Dr. Davidzon is Clinical Assistant Professor in the Department of Radiology at Stanford University. His specialties include early diagnostic imaging of cancer, coronary artery disease, and dementias using molecular probes as well as the treatment of cancer for which he employs targeted radiopharmaceutical therapy.
Dr. Davidzon is an active researcher and he is involved in the professional Society of Nuclear Medicine and Molecular Imaging. He serves as a peer reviewer for multiple medical journals. Dr. Davidzon is a native of Buenos Aires, Argentina and has lived in the U.S. for over a decade. He travels to Argentina frequently, with his wife and three sons.
Professor of Radiology (Breast Imaging) at the Stanford University Medical Center
Bio Dr. Wendy DeMartini is a Professor and the Chief of the Breast Imaging Division in the Department of Radiology at Stanford University School of Medicine. Dr. DeMartini completed her fellowship in Breast Imaging at the University of Washington School of Medicine in Seattle, Washington. She then served as Breast Imaging faculty at the University of Washington where she became Associate Professor and Associate Director of Clinical Services, and at the University of Wisconsin where she became Professor and Chief of Breast Imaging. Her work is focused upon high quality patient care, clinical research and education.
Dr. DeMartini has more than 100 research presentations, abstracts/publications, review articles or book chapters. Her research is directed toward the appropriate evidence-based use of imaging tests to optimize the detection and evaluation of breast cancer. She has served as an investigator on several studies of breast MRI funded by the National Cancer Institute and by the American College of Radiology Imaging Network (ACRIN). Particular research topics have included the development of a pilot tool for predicting the probability of malignancy of breast MRI lesions, assessment of the impact of background parenchymal enhancement (BPE) on breast MRI accuracy, and evaluation of current utilization patterns of breast MRI and other emerging technologies.
Dr. DeMartini is a highly sought-after educator. She lectures on a broad spectrum of breast imaging topics nationally and internationally, including in the Americas, Europe, Australasia and Africa. She is also the Co-Director of the American College of Radiology (ACR) Education Center Breast MRI with Biopsy Course. Dr. DeMartini is an active member of many professional organizations and committees, including in the Radiologic Society of North America, the American College of Radiology and the Society of Breast Imaging (SBI). She was elected as an SBI Fellow in 2009, and will be President of the SBI in 2017-2018.
