Prof. Fahrig's Academic Profile
Dr. Rebecca Fahrig is an associate professor (research) of radiology. Prior to joining the Department of Radiology at Stanford University, Dr. Fahrig completed her PhD in medical biophysics at the University of Western Ontario and a postdoctoral fellowship at Stanford University. She has won numerous awards including selection as a School of Medicine Faculty Fellow for 2008; the Greenfield Award for the Best Paper (nonradiation dosimetry) published in Medical Physics in 2005; the Fellowship Research Trainee Prize (along with Zhu, PhD, candidate) from the Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) Physics Subcommittee; and the Faculty Scholar in Translational Research Award from the Baxter Foundation. Dr. Fahrig's research focuses on imaging for guidance of minimally invasive procedures. She works on software and hardware that permit the use of a C-arm system for both fluoroscopy and CT imaging, and she has extended the applications of C-arm CT to retrospectively gated 3D/4D cardiac imaging in the interventional suite. Dr. Fahrig is also developing an MR-compatible X-ray fluoroscopy system, including a new rotating-anode X-ray tube for use in the fringe fields of 1.5T and 3.0T magnets.
B.S. in Physics (1984-1989) and M.S. in Medical Biophysics (1989-1992) from University of Toronto. Ph.D. in Medical Biophysics from University of Western Ontario (1995-1999). Postdoc fellowship at Stanford University (1999-2002).
