Meet RSNA President N. Reed Dunnick, MD
Distinguished radiology leader N. Reed Dunnick, MD, is RSNA president for 2014. Dr. Dunnick is the Fred Jenner Hodges Professor and chair of the Department of Radiology at the University of Michigan Health System in Ann Arbor.
As president, Dr. Dunnick will help shape and implement RSNA's vision and strategic goals to advance the radiologic sciences and develop the future of patient-centered practice. "We are proud of our past, but must focus on the future," he said. "This is a time to reflect on the many advances in our field and how they help us improve the quality of patient care we deliver. How will we translate the continued advances in medical imaging and image-guided therapy into better patient outcomes?
"We are moving from an era of ‘volume-based imaging' to one of ‘value-based imaging,'" Dr. Dunnick continued. "It will be challenging to make that transition. However, medical imaging has so much to offer, I am confident we can succeed. Today's research is tomorrow's practice."
Dr. Dunnick earned his medical degree from Cornell University Medical College in New York City.
