Radiology Personnel

Todd Richards, Ph.D.

Emeritus Professor


Dr. Richards is a Professor of Radiology at the University of Washington. He started using magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) during his doctoral training at the University of California, Berkeley where he earned his Ph.D in biophysics. For the past three decades he’s used MRI to answer questions about brain function, including research questions about various disease conditions and disorders. Richards is an expert in collecting and analyzing MRI data and has developed software that is used by several NIH-funded research projects. He also has analyzed advanced MR imaging techniques such as functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI), proton MR spectroscopy and diffusion tensor imaging (DTI), functional connectivity, and perfusion imaging.
