Clinical Instructor, Radiology
Bio Dr. Pajcini studied Molecular and Cell Biology as an undergraduate at U.C. Berkeley. He received his medical degree from Loma Linda University School of Medicine. He completed Diagnostic Radiology residency at Santa Clara Valley Medical Center and a Breast Imaging fellowship at Stanford University School of Medicine. His clinical focus is on breast cancer screening, diagnosis, and treatment.

Current Research and Scholarly Interests We are investigating and developing, and applying focused ultrasound in neuromodulation, blood brain barrier opening, and ablation for both neuro and body applications.
Boston Scientific Applied Biomedical Engineering Professor and Professor of Radiology, Emeritus
Current Research and Scholarly Interests Broadly, Dr. Pelc is interested in the physics, engineering and mathematics of medical imaging, especially computed tomography, digital x-ray imaging, magnetic resonance imaging, and hybrid multimodality systems. His current research is concentrated in the development of computed tomography systems with higher image quality and dose efficiency, in the characterization of system performance, and in the development and validation of new clinical applications.

Current Research and Scholarly Interests Prostate artery embolization (PAE) for the treatment of lower urinary tract symptoms (LUTS) from benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH).
Prophylactic balloon occlusion catheters and uterine artery embolization to reduce blood loss in patients with invasive placenta.
Geniculate artery embolization for relief of osteoarthritis related knee pain.
Associate Professor (Research) of Radiology (Cancer Early Detection-Canary Center)
Current Research and Scholarly Interests The Pitteri laboratory is focused on the discovery and validation of proteins that can be used as molecular indicators of risk, diagnosis, progression, and recurrence of cancer. Proteomic technologies, predominantly mass spectrometry, are used to identify proteins in the blood that are differentially regulated and/or post-translationally modified with disease state. Using human plasma samples, tumor tissue, cancer cell lines, and genetically engineered mouse models, the origins of these proteins are being investigated. A major goal of this research is to define novel molecular signatures for breast and ovarian cancers, including particular sub-types of these diseases. This laboratory is also focused on the identification of proteins with expression restricted to the surface of cancer cells which can be used as novel targets for molecular imaging technologies.
