Dear Imaging Institute Alumni and Staff,
In November 2015, I had the privilege of hosting some esteemed guests here at Cleveland Clinic’s Imaging Institute. Along with Gary Dworkin, MD (CATS’92), immediate past president of Cleveland Clinic Alumni Association, were retired professor Jaap Bredée, MD (TCS’76), and another colleague visiting from the Netherlands. As I led them through our newly renovated imaging suites, they remarked on the fresh, progressive design, but more notably our “small army” of caregivers unlike any they had seen in a hospital imaging department.
Our Imaging Institute continues to be one of the leading radiological academic centers in the world, providing patients with the most current technological advances and innovative treatment options. Perhaps it comes as no surprise then, that residents eagerly seek training from our revered teaching staff. I’m pleased to report that Cleveland Clinic’s Radiology Residency Program has been ranked No. 1 in Ohio by doximity.com and No. 24 in the nation, out of more than 180 programs. You’ll read more about this achievement in the Q3/Q4 2015 issue of Radiology Alumni Connection.
Other exciting news in this issue involves Thomas Masaryk, MD (DR’85), Chairman of Cleveland Clinic’s Department of Diagnostic Radiology, who presented the Luminary Lecture at the 2015 annual meeting of the Society of NeuroInterventional Surgery (SNIS). The SNIS recognized Dr. Masaryk for his distinguished work and innovation in the neurointerventional field.
You’ll also read the latest about the Imaging Institute’s (nearly complete) renovation and expansion, including the addition of 15 radiologists from Cleveland Clinic’s new affiliate, Akron General Medical Center.
I hope that you’ll enjoy reviewing these recent accomplishments as much as I enjoy sharing them with you. It’s intelligent, driven, innovative professionals like you that provide ongoing reasons for Cleveland Clinic’s Imaging Institute to celebrate.
I wish you all the best and continued success in 2016.
