    Abdelkader Mahammedi

    Clinical Assistant Professor, Radiology

    BioDr. Abdelkader Mahammedi is Assistant Professor of Neuroradiology at the Department of Radiology, Stanford University School of Medicine. He completed medical school at the University of Algiers in Algeria, and then continued a postdoctoral research fellowship in Diagnostic Radiology at Johns Hopkins Hospital under the mentorship of Dr. Stanley Siegelman. Prior to becoming a specialist neuroradiologist, Dr. Mahammedi completed a Neuroradiology fellowship at the Cleveland Clinic Imaging Institute after having completed residencies in both Nuclear Medicine and Diagnostic Radiology. His specialty interests include brain tumors, stroke, small vessel disease, head and neck imaging, and functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI). Dr. Mahammedi has contributed to over 30 peer-reviewed publications, including lead authoring multiple articles in high-impact journals. During the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, he led and collaborated with multiple institutions from Italy, Spain, and Brazil. His work was considered the first and largest study in the literature that systematically characterized neurological symptoms and neuroimaging features in hospitalized COVID-19 patients, which was published in the journal Radiology. Recently, he has published the most recent multicenter and global COVID-19-related articles, which were featured by the international media in more than 25 languages including 200 newspapers, CNN, BBC, NPR, local televised broadcasts, and the 2020 RSNA Press Release. He co-authored multiple books, including “Imaging Appearance of Migraine and Tension Type Headache” and "Humanizing BrainTumors: Strategies for You and Your Physician" which was published in 2022. Dr. Mahammedi has received numerous awards and honors, including being selected as a semi-finalist for the prestigious Cornelius Dyke Award of the American Society of Neuroradiology (ASNR) 2021, and Best Case Award at the American Institute of Radiologic Pathology (AIRP) in Neuroradiology. In 2014, he was recognized as one of the authors with top-cited articles for his work in the Journal of Thoracic Imaging at the Society of Thoracic Imaging (STR) meeting, where he introduced a new technique for early detection of pulmonary hypertension on CT scans.

  • Jennifer A McNab

    Jennifer A McNab

    Associate Professor (Research) of Radiology (Radiological Sciences Laboratory)

    Current Research and Scholarly InterestsMy research is focused on developing magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) methods that probe brain tissue microstructure. This requires new MRI contrast mechanisms, strategic encoding and reconstruction schemes, physiological monitoring, brain tissue modeling and validation. Applications of these methods include neuronavigation, neurosurgical planning and the development of improved biomarkers for brain development, degeneration, disease and injury.
