David Saloner, PhD, is a Professor in Residence in the Department of Radiology and Biomedical Imaging, Director of the Interventional Magnetic Resonance Imaging Center, and Director of the Masters of Science Program at the University of California, San Francisco. He is also the Director and Founder of the Vascular Imaging Research Center at the San Francisco Veterans Affairs Medical Center. Dr. Saloner obtained his BSc in Physics, Math, and Applied Math from the University of Witwatersrand in Johannesburg, South Africa in 1972, and he completed a BSc in Theoretical Physics from the same institution. In 1975, he received his MSc in Nuclear Physics from the University of Witwatersrand in Johannesburg, South Africa, followed by his Dr.rer.nat in Nuclear Physics from Karl-Ruprecht Universitaet in Heidelberg, West Germany in 1978.
Dr. Saloner’s research program focuses on the study of cardiovascular diseases using radiological imaging methods. At the Vascular Imaging Research Center, Dr. Saloner and his colleagues pursue a variety of approaches in order to understand atherosclerotic vascular disease. Projects include numerical simulations, phantom studies, and MRA carotid studies. At the Interventional Magnetic Resonance Imaging Center, Dr. Saloner and his colleagues focus on aneurysm studies and stent-graft studies.
Dr. Saloner has extensive publications dedicated to his research. He has 130 published articles, and he has written 19 book chapters and over 300 abstracts. Dr. Saloner’s publications have appeared in the Journal of Cardiovascular Surgery, Stroke: A Journal of Cerebral and Vascular Biology, the Journal of Biomechanical Engineering, the Journal of Magnetic Resonance Imaging, and the International Journal of Cardiology.
