    David Norman, MD, is a Professor Emeritus and former Chief of Neuroradiology in the Department of Radiology and Biomedical Imaging at the University of California, San Francisco. He received his medical degree from Ursinus College, University of Pennsylvania Medical School in Collegeville, Pennsylvania, and completed his residency from Columbia University Medical Center in New York. Following military service in Vietnam and Denver, Dr. Norman completed a Neuroradiology fellowship at UCSF. In 2006, after a long and prolific career, Dr. Norman retired from the Department of Radiology.

    Dr. Norman was among the first to highlight the use of MR imaging in the spinal cord, and his many subsequent contributions have contributed to current understanding of many disease states. Dr. Norman was integral to the development of new interventional angiographic techniques, and when MR imaging emerged, he made a name for UCSF in the new technology. In 1981 he wrote an article on dynamic computed tomography, which is published in the American Journal of Roentgenology. He was one of the first to detail the basis of the perfusion techniques that are used today. In that article, he wrote, “The concept of corrected mean transit time (MTT) applied to rapid sequence scans after intravenous bolus injection of contrast material provides quantitative data on hemispheric flow.” After 25 years, MTT maps are used everyday in the reading room.

    Altmetrics Details PMC Citations indicate the number of times the publication was cited by articles in PubMed Central, and the Altmetric score represents citations in news articles and social media. (Note that publications are often cited in additional ways that are not shown here.) Fields are based on how the National Library of Medicine (NLM) classifies the publication's journal and might not represent the specific topic of the publication. Translation tags are based on the publication type and the MeSH terms NLM assigns to the publication.
