Awards and Recognition
Minnie Award- Most Influential Radiology Researcher
Richard Duszak, MD
The Minnies panel's focus on economic issues was evident in the selection of Dr. Richard Duszak as Most Influential Radiology Researcher. Duszak is chief medical officer of the American College of Radiology's (ACR) Harvey L. Neiman Health Policy Institute, and he is also vice chair for health policy and practice at Emory University in Atlanta. Duszak believes the work he and others are doing -- from the Neiman institute to the ACR's Imaging 3.0 campaign to the organization's Radiology Leadership Institute -- is gaining traction. "I think the future of radiology is bright, but it will be a different future than the unbridled growth that we had in the past," he said.
