Professor of Radiology (Diagnostic Radiology) at the Stanford University Medical Center, Emeritus
Current Research and Scholarly InterestsAs 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 (Thoracic Imaging) and of Biomedical Informatics Research
Current Research and Scholarly InterestsI am interested in the use of deep neural networks and other machine learning technologies to help radiologists detect disease and eliminate diagnostic errors. My laboratory is developing deep neural networks that detect and classify disease on medical images. We also develop natural language processing methods that use the narrative radiology report to create large annotated image training sets for supervised machine learning experiments.
Bryan Lanzman, MD
Clinical Assistant Professor, Radiology
BioDr. Bryan Lanzman completed his medical degree and radiology residency at Columbia University Medical Center, before coming to Stanford University for a 2-year Neuroradiology fellowship. He joined the faculty at Stanford in 2017 and is actively involved in medical student and resident education, as well as quality improvement efforts within the neuroradiology section. He also serves as a co-director of the Neuroradiology clerkship for medical students, and for the Neuroradiology elective for neurology residents.
Professor of Radiology (Pediatric Radiology)
BioDavid B. Larson, MD, MBA, is Professor of Radiology (Pediatric Radiology) in the Department of Radiology at Stanford University, where he also serves as the Vice Chair for Education and Clinical Operations. He serves as the Associate Chief Quality Officer for Improvement for Stanford Health Care and physician co-leader of the Stanford Medicine Center for Improvement Dr. Larson is a national thought leader in radiology quality improvement and patient safety, and a regular speaker regarding topics ranging from pediatric CT radiation dose optimization to radiology peer learning. He is the executive director of Stanford’s Realizing Improvement through Team Empowerment (RITE) program and co-director of the Clinical Effectiveness Leadership Training (CELT) program. He also leads the Stanford Medicine Improvement Capability Development Program.
Dr. Larson is the Founder and Program Chair for the Radiology Improvement Summit held annually at Stanford, now in its fourth year. He also serves on the Board of Trustees of the American Board of Radiology, overseeing quality and safety, and on the Board of Directors of the Society for Pediatric Radiology. He serves on the Board of Chancellors for the American College of Radiology as the Chair of the ACR's Commission on Quality and Safety.
Prior to his position at Stanford, Dr. Larson was the Janet L. Strife Chair for Quality and Safety in Radiology and a faculty member of the James M. Anderson Center for Health Systems Excellence at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital in Cincinnati, Ohio. He holds MD and MBA degrees from Yale University and completed his training at the University of Colorado Health Sciences Center in Denver, Colorado. Dr. Larson is a pediatric radiologist at Lucile Packard Children's Hospital at Stanford. He and his wife, Tara, live in Portola Valley, California and have four children.
Professor of Radiology (Thoracic Imaging)
Current Research and Scholarly InterestsHigh-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 Radiology (Radiological Sciences Laboratory)
Current Research and Scholarly InterestsMy 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.

Current Research and Scholarly InterestsMolecular Imaging Instrumentation
Our research interests involve the development of novel instrumentation and software algorithms for in vivo imaging of cellular and molecular signatures of disease in humans and small laboratory animal subjects.
BioCongyu Liao is an Instructor in the Division of Radiological Sciences Laboratory (RSL). Dr. Liao received his PhD in Biomedical Engineering from Zhejiang University in China in 2018. Following the completion of his PhD, he was appointed Postdoctoral Research Fellow at Massachusetts General Hospital/Harvard University under Kawin Setsompop, PhD, where his research was focused on improving the efficiency of data acquisition/reconstruction in MRI. In 2021, he came to Stanford to join Dr. Setsompop’s lab as a Postdoctoral Scholar in RSL where his research is focused on developing new technology for diffusion and quantitative MRI. Dr. Liao has received many awards including the Summa Cum Laude Merit Award from the International Society for Magnetic Resonance in Medicine and the Outstanding Research Award from the Overseas Chinese Society for Magnetic Resonance in Medicine.
