Andreas Rauschecker


Bavarian baker on a quest to unravel the brain's mysteries

Dr. Andreas Rauschecker is a neuroradiologist who cares for both adults and children. He specializes in using advanced imaging technologies, such as CT and MRI, to diagnose nervous system disorders. He also treats patients by means of image-guided procedures and uses his expertise to assist colleagues in managing and treating their patients.

In research, Rauschecker focuses on using modern technology to understand the brain in conditions of health and disease. Specifically, he uses artificial intelligence and advanced image-processing techniques to investigate the brain and its appearance in relation to disease, with the goal of improving the information he can provide to patients and other doctors.

Before going to medical school, Rauschecker earned a master's degree in neuroscience from the University of Oxford. He earned his medical degree and a doctorate in neuroscience from Stanford University Medical School. He completed a residency in diagnostic radiology at the University of Pennsylvania's Perelman School of Medicine, followed by a fellowship in neuroradiology at UCSF.

Rauschecker has received numerous honors for his work, including awards from the Radiological Society of North America and American Society of Neuroradiology.
