September 11th, 2015: "New Horizons in Oncologic Imaging" Dr. Hricak is Chair of the Department of Radiology at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center and holds a senior position within the Program of Molecular Pharmacology and Chemistry at the Sloan-Kettering Institute. She is also Professor at the Gerstner Sloan-Kettering Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences, and Professor of Radiology, Weill Medical College of Cornell University. Dr. Hricak’s own expertise is in cross-sectional anatomic and molecular imaging, particularly of gynecologic and prostate cancers. Her research focuses on the evidence-based use of imaging in cancer management, including detection, treatment selection, treatment planning, and treatment follow-up. Dr. Hricak was one of the pioneers in establishing the use of MRI and CT for gynecologic cancers and the application of MRI and MR spectroscopy for prostate cancer. Watch her lecture here.


May 29th, 2015:Principles of oncologic imaging and reporting: The radiologist as consultant” Professor David M. Panicek, MD, FACR, serves as Vice Chair for Clinical Affairs and as Director of Educational Programs in the Department of Radiology at Memorial Hospital, and as Vice Chairman of the Graduate Medical Education Committee at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, in New York City. Dr. Panicek’s research has covered a range of topics in oncologic imaging, using various imaging techniques in the diagnosis and care of patients with cancer. He was the lead investigator on a National Cancer Institute/National Institutes of Health multi-institutional project that compared CT and MR imaging for the staging of musculoskeletal tumors. His clinical and research focus for the last fifteen years has been musculoskeletal tumor imaging, about which he lectures nationally and internationally. Watch his lecture here.

April 24th, 2015: "Lung Cancer Screening" Professor Gil Boswell, MD, visiting from Navel Medical Center San Diego. Dr. Boswell is a Cardiothoracic Radiologist at the Naval Medical Center San Diego. He is a civilian government employee of the US Navy involved, serving as clinical staff radiologist, educator, and a radiology technology expert in evaluating radiology equipment for the US Navy. Dr. Boswell has had an extensive military and private practice career. His academic interests have included developing techniques for radiation dose reduction, CT Angiography techniques for detection of occult parathyroid adenomas, application of cardiac MRI experience to gaining the most information from cardiac CT imaging, and developing and implementing lung cancer screening for Navy Medicine West. Most recent projects are studying the science of perception in radiology, and furthering smoking cessation in the US Navy. Watch his lecture here.
