Donor Spotlights

Thank you to these contributors whose outstanding generosity to The Roentgen Fund® supports the future of radiology.

David R. Pennes, MD

I have always considered ARRS as “my” society and have been grateful for the educational offerings, well executed annual meetings, and AJR. I can’t think of any better way to show my gratitude to ARRS than by supporting the next generation of radiology researchers through the Roentgen Fund.

Mark S. Parker, MD

It is a distinct privilege to belong to the American Roentgen Ray Society, the very first radiologic society that welcomed me to the Specialty of Radiology during my residency training. It is even more of a privilege to contribute to that same society that provided me with my very first lecture opportunity at a National Radiologic Society Annual Meeting many years ago. My wife, Cindy, and I are both honored to support the Educational, Scientific and Research goals of the ARRS and its mission to advance excellence in medicine through radiologic imaging. It is our hope that our contributions to the Roentgen Fund will afford other young radiologists in-training and junior faculty similar experiences and opportunities and continue to positively shape the growth of Radiology for many years to come.

In memory of: Anne C. Brower, MD, Musculoskeletal Radiologist, who served as both my academic mentor and chair during my chief residency.

In honor of: Melissa L. Rosado de Christenson, MD, my very first mentor in Thoracic Imaging

Michael Maiman, MD

Much thanks to the radiologists whose research contributes to advancing the services that we in small rural communities provide every day. In particular, my donation honors the late Henry Goldberg, MD of UC San Francisco whom I remember fondly for stimulating my interest in gastrointestinal imaging in an era when barium was king.

Philip Costello, MD

The Roentgen fund provides support to outstanding individuals capable of making significant contributions to the field of Radiology. It is a privilege to be part of an organization that values both education and research by sponsoring early career radiologists. It is my hope that my continued donations play a small part in the success of their endeavors.

Srini Tridandapani, PhD, MD, MBA

Just as I value all of my mentors, I would like to acknowledge all of my trainees and mentees—medical students, graduate students, residents, fellows, post-doctoral researchers, and faculty members: you constantly energize me, teach me, and remind me of the beauty in radiology. Thank you for keeping the curiosity alive in me.

Yoshimi Anzai, MD, MPH

The ARRS is the oldest radiology society in the United States, founded in 1900, only 5 years after Dr. Wilhelm Conrad Roentgen discovered x-ray in 1895. Ever since ARRS has contributed to education and training for generations of radiologists with broad backgrounds. ARRS also offers a strong sense of community among radiologists with diverse backgrounds. Furthermore, ARRS has fostered scientific investigation over the decades. Radiology is a medical discipline that has thrived through technical innovation to diagnose and treat various diseases. Our future success depends on our innovation. Supporting the Roentgen Fund is to invest in our future.
