    Two-time Grant Recipient Furthers Research with $2 Million in Additional Funding

    Habib Rahbar, MD, began his RSNA research journey as a trainee with his 2010 RSNA Research Fellow Grant, “Risk-Stratification of Ductal Carcinoma in Situ (DCIS): Development of a Predictive Model Incorporating Dynamic-Contrast-Enhanced and Diffusion Weighted MRI Characteristics at 3T for Discrimination of DCIS Subtypes.” Dr. Rahbar then furthered his research with a 2014 RSNA Research Scholar Grant, “Improving Treatment Outcomes of Ductal Carcinoma in Situ with Breast MRI.”

    Now Dr. Rahbar, associate professor at the University of Washington and clinical director of breast imaging at the Seattle Cancer Care Alliance, has secured his first National Institutes of Health (NIH) Research Project (R01) grant of $2 million over five years to continue his investigations on improving treatment outcomes of ductal carcinoma in situ of the breast with MRI.

    “The RSNA Clinical Trials Methodology Workshop and the RSNA Advanced Course in Grant Writing gave me the opportunity to further refine my research skills and use the data gleaned from the RSNA grants to submit NIH-level grant applications,” Dr. Rahbar said.
