From the Chairman
Welcome to our inaugural issue of the Imaging Institute Newsletter. This annual publication will help keep Imaging Institute staff and alumni connected, while recapping all of the changes we’ve experienced in the past year. We have seen remarkable growth and changes in leadership and administration. And we continue the renovation at the main campus and development of Cleveland Clinic London.
Specifically, we dedicate this 2019 newsletter to celebrating and welcoming Dr. Moulay Meziane as Chairman of Regional Radiology, and congratulating our former Chair, Dr. Ronald Lorig. We are grateful for their contributions to our team.
In this issue, you’ll also read about:
- Changes to the administrative staff of Regional Radiology and our Diagnostic Radiology Residency.
- Imaging Innovations and the first of many bright ideas that we’ll be making a reality.
- The second annual Imaging Art Show.
- 2019 Meaney Research Day.
- Our 2019 graduates.
- Dr. Richard Brunken’s retirement.
- 27 new radiologists.
- And much more.
Dr. Pauline Kwok, who was editor of the former Radiology Alumni Connection, will continue as editor of this publication. Many things will look the same: We will continue to feature institute news and celebrate the achievements of our staff. But we also want to include more of what you want to read. I encourage you to contact Dr. Kwok (firstname.lastname@example.org) with your ideas for future newsletters.
In honor of Cleveland Clinic’s 100th anniversary in 2021, Dr. Masaryk and Dr. Kwok would like to encourage you to join the Centennial Legacy Society. This is a meaningful way of giving back to the institution that has given each of us so much. Your contributions will support Professional Development Grants in the Education and Lerner Research institutes, as well as Cleveland Clinic Lerner College of Medicine student scholarships, research, training and development programs.
I’m very proud to recognize our Imaging Institute staff and alumni who already have joined the Centennial Legacy Society:
- Dr. Kuniaki Hayashi
- Dr. Brian Herts
- Dr. Paul Janicki & Dr. Christine Quinn
- Dr. Pauline Kwok
- Dr. James M. Lieberman
- Dr. Carl Linge
- Dr. Joseph LiPuma
- Dr. Barbara Risius

I hope you enjoy this issue of the Imaging Institute Newsletter and wish you the very best.
