Dear Imaging Institute Alumni and Staff,

Welcome to our webpage. We appreciate this opportunity to reconnect with you.

After more than two years of planning and preparation, we are pleased to announce that a 7T MRI was installed at Main Campus in July. The 7T is the only one of its kind in Northeast Ohio, and one of a dozen in the nation. This ultra-high field MRI enables us to see smaller details that 1.5 T and 3T MRIs do not pick up.

The installation of the 7T MRI and other news, including Cleveland Clinic physicians consulting with a new Brain Health facility in Beijing, are featured in the Q3/Q4 2013 issue of Radiology Alumni Connection.

We would like to thank the donors who are supporting our new Radiology Alumni Education Award for Excellence. This new award, to be presented for the first time at the 2014 Senior Residents’ Graduation Dinner, will enable the recipient to go to an attendance-only national radiology meeting/conference of his or her choice.

Imaging Institute staff and alumni who would like to contribute to the Radiology Alumni Education Award Fund can make a tax-deductible donation online.

Fund #30-055460

We welcome your support at any level.

The 2013 RSNA Cleveland Clinic Radiology Alumni Reception will take place on Sunday, Dec. 1, at the Renaissance Chicago Downtown Hotel. We encourage you to join us. It’s a perfect event to reconnect with your former mentors, colleagues and friends. Staying connected with fellow alumni has many rewards, not only professional but also personal. We hope to see you in Chicago!

Dr. Borkowski
