Stanford | Radiology; Office of the Chair - December 2012 Newsletter
2012 RSNA 98th Assembly and Annual Meeting
 

Dear Colleagues,
This year's RSNA, with the theme "Patients First", was dedicated to the memory of Dr. Gary M. Glazer who served as the Chair of Radiology at Stanford from 1989 -2011. Dr. George Bissett, 2012 RSNA President, presented Diane Glazer and family with an honorary plaque and acknowledgement of Dr. Glazer's tireless efforts to make radiology more patient-centered and promote the "visible radiologist. Dr. Bissett and colleagues reminded conference attendees that becoming full members of our patients' healthcare teams is critical to the visibility of radiology and in keeping with Dr. Glazer's longtime vision. Dr. Glazer, who died October 16, 2011, received the RSNA Gold Medal in 2009.

During this past year, the radiology community also lost Dr. Malcolm A. Bagshaw (Sept 18, 2011), yet another renowned Stanford physician. Dr. Bagshaw was one of the world's foremost experts on radiation therapy. Along with his Stanford colleague, Henry Kaplan, Dr. Bagshaw pioneered the use of high-energy radiation as produced by a linear accelerator for the treatment of head and neck cancer, pediatric tumors including retinoblastoma, gynecological cancer and prostate cancer. Dr. Bagshaw was awarded the RSNA Gold Medal in 1999.

Dr. Bissett summarized the opening ceremonies by urging that in order to distinguish the field of radiology, we need come out of the reading room; visit our patients in the waiting area; provide organized patient information materials; and communicate with our clinical colleagues.

On November 28, 2012, the RSNA and Stanford community learned that Dr. Sarah S. Donaldson was named as the incoming president of RSNA for 2013. Dr. Donaldson is professor of radiation oncology, associate residency program director in the Department of Radiation Oncology, and chief of radiation oncology at the Lucile Packard Children's Hospital. Please be sure to thank Dr. Donaldson for taking on this challenging role and to congratulate her for this honor.

The following highlights our Department of Radiology successes at RSNA this year. Please acknowledge your colleagues and their achievements at this year's meeting.
