Training Site: Department of Radiology, University of California, Los Angeles
Mentors: David Lu, M.D.; Steven Raman, M.D.
Fellowship Period: July 2008 – June 2009
Dr. McClure recently changed from residency in urology to radiology at the University of California, Los Angeles. His transition stems in large part due to the promising possibilities that exist in minimally invasive image-guided treatments for a variety of malignancies, especially MRgFUS. During his transition year, Dr. McClure will work with clinicians and researchers in the development of MRgFUS at UCLA. This includes working with Dr. David Lu and Dr. Steve Raman for treatment of uterine fibroids as well as clinical trials investigating the use of MRgFUS in metastatic bone tumors, prostate cancer, and breast cancer. This fellowship will provide him the opportunity to develop a better understanding of MRgFUS and to be involved in the development of this new and exciting technology.
