Letter from the Chair

Max Rosen, MD - Radiology Department Chair

Dear All,

Lots to celebrate in this issue of RadNews!

On Tuesday three UMass Radiology teams were recognized with Innovators of the Year Awards:  The Overall Winning Idea: Increase CT Scan Throughput-University CT was won by the University CT scan team. Marlboro Hospital Radiology took home gold for their project: CT STAT Turn Around Time and Fitchburg Mammography clinched Silver for their Mammography Transformation Project.

On March 15 we completed one of our most successful Residency Matches in Diagnostic Radiology and Integrated Interventional/Diagnostic Radiology, and on April 1 we launched the first group of UMass Chan’s new core Radiology Clerkship in our beautiful new Radiology education lab on A level of the medical school.

UMass Chan student Kylie Long presented her summer ‘23 research project at the Massachusetts Medical Society’s (MMS) Fifteenth Research Poster Symposium for Residents, Fellows, and Medical Students; Alex Bankier hosted a podcast for RSNA as first author of the Fleischner Society’s influential “Glossary of Terms for Thoracic Imaging”; Janet Oluwoe was selected as a Society of Skeletal Radiology (SSR) Scholar, and research from the lab of Raúl Padrón and Roger Craig was featured on the cover of Nature.

It’s a pleasure to share these and many other departmental accomplishments with you.
