Radiology Personnel

Swati Rane Levendovszky, Ph.D.

Assistant Professor


I am an Assistant Professor of Radiology at the University of Washington Medical Center (UWMC) since 2017. I am a member of the Integrated Brain Imaging Center (IBIC) and the Interim Director of the Diagnostic Imaging Sciences Center (DISC). The primary focus of my research group (Cerebrovascular Imaging & Analytics) at IBIC is the development of clinically feasible, targeted imaging, and end-to-end analyses pipeline for functional and anatomical imaging to improve the diagnostic capabilities of MRI. Specifically, I develop novel perfusion imaging approaches to better understand cerebrovascular pathology on the Philips and Siemens MRI platforms.

My research is currently funded by the Alzheimer’s Association, The Dolsen Family Fund, Philips, The Royalty Research Fund, and the National Institutes of Health. Past funding includes the Michael J Fox Foundation and W. Garfield Weston Brain Institute. I have received several competitive awards such as the Elliot Newmann Society Scholar Award and the Charleston Conferences on Alzheimer’s Disease Young Investigator Award.
