While at UCSF in the late 1970s, Dr. Bradley first became involved in magnetic resonance imaging, initially "translating" the physics of MRI for other radiologists. His subsequent research has been focused on MRI of flow phenomena, hemorrhage, stroke, MS, and normal pressure hydrocephalus as well as other topics involving MRI of the brain. He has published over 200 papers, 54 chapters, and 21 textbooks, including the first general MRI text in the field, Magnetic Resonance Imaging.
