Dr. Michael Iv received his medical degree from the David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA. He completed his radiology residency training at Santa Clara Valley Medical Center and neuroradiology fellowship at Stanford University. He is board certified in Diagnostic Radiology and also holds a Certificate of Added Qualification in Neuroradiology. His primary research interest focuses on the use of advanced MRI techniques to probe the brain tumor microenvironment and improve our diagnostic capability to effectively monitor a tumor’s response to treatment. Examples include using ferumoxytol-enhanced MRI to image tumor associated macrophages and MR perfusion-based fractional tumor burden to image tumor vascularity and neoangiogenesis. He has received multiple intramural and extramural grants including the Radiological Society of North America Research Scholar Grant and Musella Foundation for Brain Tumor Research Grant to support his work. He was also a co-editor of a published two volume book set entitled “Glioblastoma: State-of-the-Art Clinical Neuroimaging.” In addition to research, he is actively involved in the clinical care of patients and regularly participates in multi-disciplinary conferences. He currently serves as the Director of Brain Tumor Imaging at the Stanford Brain Tumor Center.
