3DQ Lab Leadership Announcement

Dear Colleagues,

I am very happy to announce that the 3DQ lab will now have new team leadership effective Jan 1, 2013. Dr. Dominik Fleischmann will serve as the Clinical Director, Dr. Roland Bammer as the Technical Director, and Dr. Sandy Napel will continue to be the Scientific Director. Together they bring a very unique skill set that will help our patients to receive the best care possible. They will work closely to help the 3DQ lab to remain profitable while growing it in entirely new directions.

I want to thank Dr. Brooke Jeffrey for his interim leadership and I know he is also excited to help the 3DQ lab transition in this coming year. Finally, much thanks and gratitude goes to the incredible 3DQ Lab staff, namely: Linda Horst, Marc Sofilos, Keshni Kumar, Nancy Ware, Shannon Walters, Kristy Bogart, Rhea Liang, Caryn Damits, Kala Raman, and administrators Debra Frank and Keesha Winston. They have worked tirelessly to learn new protocols and to keep up with an increasing caseload through a long transition.

I also want to thank Dominik, Roland, and Sandy in stepping up to the plate to form a unique partnership for the benefit of the Department and our patients.

Please join me in congratulating them on this new and exciting mission.

Sincerely,

Leadership Transition in the Abdominal Imaging Section

juergen-willmann.jpgDear Colleagues,

Please join me in congratulating Dr. Juergen Willmann in his new role as the Section Chief of Abdominal Imaging effective January 1, 2013. Dr. Willmann has been serving as the Associate Section Chief for Abdominal Imaging since January 2012. He has been mentored by both myself and Dr. Brooke Jeffrey and has proven his ability to be an academic and administrative leader. I know Dr. Willmann will do very well in his new role. Please join me in wishing him the very best of success.

As you may know Dr. Brooke Jeffrey has served as the Section Chief for Abdominal Imaging since 1990. Brooke has done a tremendous job in building one of the best abdominal imaging sections in the country. I want to thank him for his exceptional work including mentoring many junior faculty, residents, and fellows over the years. Dr. Jeffrey will continue to serve in his roles as Vice Chair and Associate Chair of Academic Affairs for the Department. He will be very helpful to the Department in many new initiatives. He will also continue to help Dr. Willmann and the Abdominal Imaging in multiple significant ways in the years to come.

Sincerely,

RSNA dedicates 2012 Meeting to Dr. Gary Glazer

Glazer_MAY1861-4x5.jpgRSNA will dedicate the 2012 annual meeting program to the memory of Gary M. Glazer, MD. George Bisset, RSNA President, will be making the introduction and Diane Glazer will be present to accept the
recognition on Gary's behalf.

Sunday, Nov 25th from 8:30 - 10:15am
Arie Crown Theater

This is a tremendous honor and recognition of Gary's visionary leadership
and contributions to Radiology.

Important RSNA 2012 Events

Dr. Gambhir would like to encourage everyone to attend two important events being held at RSNA this year.

As you may have heard, RSNA will dedicate the 2012 annual meeting program to the memory of Gary M Glazer, MD. George Bisset, RSNA President, will be
making the introduction and Diane Glazer will be present to accept the
recognition on Gary's behalf. The dedication will occur during the opening
session which is Sunday, Nov 25th from 8:30 - 10:15am in the Arie Crown
Theater.

This is a tremendous honor and recognition of Gary's visionary leadership
and contributions to Radiology, so I wanted to be sure you were all aware of
the ceremony so you can plan to attend if you will be at RSNA.

Additionally, the Annual Oration in Radiation Oncology is being dedicated
to the memory of Malcolm Bagshaw, MD who passed away in September 2011.
This will be held Wednesday, November 28, at 1:30 p.m in the Arie Crown
Theater. Dr. Bagshaw was a former Chair of the Department of Radiology,
after Henry S Kaplan. In 1986, under Dr. Bagshaw, Radiology split into two
Departments: Diagnostic Radiology (which included a section of Nuclear
Medicine), and Radiation Oncology (which included Radiation Biology). Dr.
Bagshaw became the Chair of Radiation Oncology. The Annual Oration will
feature prostate cancer which was Dr. Bagshaw's major interest and for which
he was an international leader.

Finally, please save the date on your calendar for Stanford Radiology's RSNA
Alumni Reception which will be held on Tuesday evening, November 27th.
Details regarding time and location are forthcoming.
