New in Pediatric Radiology!
Dr. Hopkins has started a quarterly newsletter "The Reading Room" to highlight what is on the minds of those who take care of our smallest patients. Last Quarter she highlighted our undersea pediatric imaging suite and discussed Modified Barium Swallow radiation doses. Safety is naturally a common topic in pediatrics, and radiation continues to be in our radiologists forethought. This quarter Dr. Hopkins highlights the progress we've made on lowering body CT Radiation dose.
Also new, Dr. Hopkins wants to put your acuity to the test. She has started a monthly Case Challenge to test your knowledge and skills. See if you can determine an accurate diagnosis based on a set of images. You may email Dr. Hopkins directly with your answers. This month's challenge closes at 5pm on Thursday, February 28, 2013.

When time allows she also loves good food, hiking in the Columbia River Gorge, reading, and spending time with friends. Welcome Dr. Beckett we are glad to have you.
End of an era and a new Chair for Diagnostic Radiology
After 19 years of superb leadership, Frederick Keller, MD, stepped down as Chair of Diagnostic Radiology. His leadership guided the department to exceptionally high levels in imaging and academics. We remain grateful for his time as chair.
Diagnostic Radiology is equally fortunate to have had Steven Primack, MD step in as interim chair. For the past ten years, Dr. Primack held the position of Vice-Chair of the department. Supporting OHSU’s mission of interdisciplinary healthcare is an integral part of Dr. Primack’s leadership philosophy. He continues to build on his beliefs in service excellence and increasing the department’s efforts at collaborative, multidisciplinary pursuits at OHSU.
