Lo más mejor posible de 2012: Una reducción de las concesiones de la tapa de asociaciones superiores

por Sean Ruck, Contributing Editor | December 28, 2012
Last year, DOTmed Business News introduced a feature that offered information about the recipients of some of the top awards presented by leading associations and organizations in health care. The following information was supplied by the respective organizations and associations. This year, we provide information on the new batch of honorees, but some additional associations are represented. If an association you belong to isn’t on display here, let us know and we’ll reach out to them for inclusion in next year’s issue.

RSNA Gold Medals
In a tradition that originated in 1919, Gold Medals are presented each year to individuals who have rendered exemplary service to the science of radiology and who have received unanimous approval by the RSNA Board of Directors. The award is the highest honor bestowed by the Radiological Society of North America.

R. Gilbert Jost

A globally recognized leader in computer applications in radiology and informatics, 2007 RSNA President R. Gilbert Jost, M.D., played a critical visionary role in guiding the specialty into the digital age decades before electronic health records had been conceptualized.

An equally renowned clinical diagnostic radiologist, Dr. Jost has devoted his career to using information technology to improve and serve diagnostic radiology and the specialty overall. He continues to stress the importance of understanding and harnessing the power of information technology in maintaining the strength—and future—of the profession.

Dr. Jost quickly found his niche as a radiology resident at Mallinckrodt Institute of Radiology (MIR) in Saint Louis, Mo., in 1972, moving from diagnostic chief resident in 1974 to faculty instructor in 1975. He spent the duration of his career at MIR, where he currently serves as the Elizabeth Mallinckrodt Professor of Radiology and chair of the Radiology Department for Washington University School of Medicine and director of MIR.

Dr. Jost’s career dovetailed with the birth of the computer age in the late 1960s and early 1970s. He graduated from Harvard University in 1964 and earned his medical doctor degree at Yale University Medical School in 1969. While pursuing neurophysiology research at Yale, he accepted a fellowship to investigate medical computer applications at the university’s medical and engineering schools, sparking a lifelong interest in technology.
