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. In 1997 he co-founded Trivascular Inc, remaining actively engaged in support of its development of low-profile aortic stent-grafts until the company was sold in 2004.
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 highly acclaimed 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 AuntMinnie.com. He is an active public speaker, having made over 1000 presentations to medical, scientific, and lay audiences in over 40 countries.
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. In 2014 Dr. Rubin received an MBA from the Fuqua School of Business at Duke University and was named a Fuqua Scholar, awarded to the top 10% of the graduating class.
