Professor, Department of Radiology; Research Director, Breast Imaging; University of Washington SOM; Associate Director of Cancer Imaging; Seattle Care Alliance
Dr. Partridge is a professor in radiology and research director of breast imaging. Her background is in medical imaging physics and her research focuses on development of novel imaging tools for improving cancer detection and treatment. She is an active member in multiple national cancer and imaging cooperative groups and has served as chair and co-chair of two multi-institutional breast MRI clinical trials (ECOG-ACRIN 6702 and 6698). Dr. Partridge actively collaborates with clinical radiology, pathology, and oncology investigators.
At UW, Dr. Partridge leads the Quantitative Breast Imaging (QBI) research laboratory developing advanced magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) acquisition and image analysis techniques for clinical and translational breast applications. Her research group works to improve breast cancer screening technologies and to improve treatment outcomes through better differentiation of high and low risk disease and more accurate assessment of treatment effects. Current research includes exploring machine learning methods to analyze high dimensional ‘radiomics’ datasets to identify new prognostic image-based tumor phenotypes.
