Cardiovascular Medicine IN THE DEPARTMENT OF MEDICINE

Resources and Facilities

The research, clinical, and educational resources and activities of the departments and programs involved provide an extraordinary environment for multi-disciplinary training in CV imaging. A key asset of the CVIS program is the proximity of the departments and facilities on the Stanford University campus. The Falk Cardiovascular Research Center is adjacent to Stanford Hospital and houses Cardiovascular Medicine, Cardiothoracic Surgery, and the Cardiovascular Institute. In addition to cardiovascular biology labs, it has a full animal facility with surgical and cath lab facilities and the Falk Cardiovascular 3T MRI lab. The Richard M. Lucas Center for Imaging is near the School of Medicine and houses the Radiology Department and Radiologic Sciences Lab. It has one 1.5T, two 3T, and one 7T whole-body MRI systems, as well as a cyclotron and radiochemistry facilities.

CVIS Organization

The Stanford Hospital has numerous inpatient and outpatient state-of-the-art MRI, CT, SPECT, PET/CT, echo, and x-ray angio systems. The James H. Clark Center is between the School of Medicine and the Packard Electrical Engineering Building and houses Bioengineering and the Molecular Imaging Program at Stanford (MIPS). It has the Stanford Center for Innovation in In-Vivo Imaging (SCI3), which is a multi-modality small animal imaging facility with bioluminescence, fluorescence, micro-PET, micro-SPECT, ultrasound, micro-CT, and 7T MRI. The Packard Building houses Electrical Engineering, which has a dedicated Magnetic Resonance Systems Research Lab nearby with a 1.5T research MRI.
