David Lewis, M.D.Professor
Director, HMC Nuclear Medicine
Dr. Lewis is a UW Professor of radiology and the director of nuclear medicine at Harborview Medical Center (HMC). Nuclear medicine is a way of imaging the function of the body; examples include cardiac function in health and disease, bone metabolism in orthopedics, skeletal pain and cancer.
His main area of interest is in functional imaging of the brain with nuclear medicine. This field has led to new and greater insights into the healthy function of the brain and where it goes awry in disease. These insights will lead to better treatment.
