Don Resnick; Gold Medal honoree of the American College of Radiology
12/7/2017 -

Congratulations, Professor Don Resnick, who is being honored at the annual American College of Radiology (ACR) annual meeting in Washington DC with its highest honor; the gold medal. The ACR gold medal is awarded for extraordinary lifetime accomplishments benefiting the practice or science of Radiology, and indicates the individuals who have architected radiology as it is globally practiced today.
Professor Resnick, besides being among the most recognized radiologists by any measure, is also among the most beloved. He is known for his warmth, brilliance, and for his exceptional and extraordinary teaching. Famously, he is known for establishing the science of radiology-pathology correlation where musculoskeletal science is concerned, and for training generations of musculoskeletal imagers truly excelling in this activity where both quantity and quality of trainees is concerned. His personal touch through his premier fellowship has been in directly and in large part contributory to the development and maturation of the subspecialty in its current iteration.
The gold medal will be awarded on Sunday May 20th, 2018, and we will be with Don in spirit if not in body. Thank you Professor Resnick for bringing luster and recognition in large measure to UCSD, we are indebted.

Anne Roberts, MD, explains non-invasive MR treatment for fibroid tumors
5/11/2017 -

This month's Corner Clinic, UC San Diego Health's health expert's answer column, features Anne Roberts, MD, presenting the latest advances in fibroid tumor treatment. "Traditionally, the treatment for symptomatic fibroids was a hysterectomy," says Roberts. Today, she explains, MR can be used to non-invasively heat and kill fibroid tissue with an ultrasound beam. "The MR-guided procedure is conceptually similar to burning a hole in a piece of paper by focusing a beam of sunlight with a magnifying glass," Roberts says.
