Geoffrey D. Rubin, MD, FACR, FSCBTMR, FNASCI is the George B. Geller Distinguished Professor of Radiology and Bioengineering at Duke University. He served as Chairman of the Department of Radiology at Duke University from 2010-2013. Prior to that time he was Professor of Radiology at Stanford University from 1993-2010, serving as Associate Dean for Clinical Affairs in the School of Medicine and Associate Director of the Stanford Cardiovascular Institute from 2005-2010, Chief of Cardiovascular Imaging from 2000-2010, and was elected Vice Chief of Staff by the medical staff of Stanford Hospital and Clinics, serving from 2007-2010. He is Past President of the North American Society for Cardiovascular Imagers, the Society for Computed Body Tomography and Magnetic Resonance, and the Fleischner Society for Thoracic Imaging and Diagnosis.

Dr. Rubin pioneered the use of spiral CT and multidetector-row CT for imaging the cardiovascular system. In 1996 he co-founded the Stanford 3-D Medical Imaging Laboratory, serving as its Medical Director until 2010. The 3-D Laboratory developed and assessed the clinical role of computer graphics and computer vision applications to the analysis of medical imaging data and in latter years processed over 10,000 clinical examinations each year, serving as a model for the development of similar programs around the world.

Dr. Rubin is the author of over 180 peer-reviewed manuscripts and over 50 review articles and book chapters. He has edited five books, including the recently published textbook, CT and MR Angiography: Comprehensive Vascular Assessment. He has served as the Principal Investigator of two NIH RO1s focused on imaging and analysis of cardiovascular and pulmonary diseases, “Measurement of the Aorta and its Branches” (1998-2003) and “Improving Radiologist Detection of Lung Nodules with CAD” (2004-present). He has been listed in “America’s Top Doctors” and “Best Doctors in America” annually since 2002 and 2004, respectively. In 2008, he was awarded the “Most Effective Radiology Educator” award by

He received his Bachelor of Science with Honors from the California Institute of Technology in 1982, MD from the University of California at San Diego in 1987, and completed Radiology Residency and Body Imaging Fellowship Training at Stanford University in 1993. Dr. Rubin is currently earning an MBA from the Fuqua School of Business at Duke University.
