Feauturing on this edition:

International Society of Radiology mourns the death of Richard L. Baron, outstanding radiologist, researcher and educator and member of the ISR Executive Committee who suddenly passed away last week.

Dr. Baron has been the recipient of numerous awards for his research, focused especially on liver imaging, including the Hounsfield Award from the Society of Computed Body Tomography and Magnetic Resonance and The Roscoe E. Miller Award from the Society of Gastrointestinal Radiologists.

He has served as an associate editor for Radiology and for Liver Transplantation and served in leadership roles for multiple national radiology societies, including serving as president of the Society of Computed Body Tomography/Magnetic Resonance and the Society of Gastrointestinal Radiologists and on the board of directors of the Radiological Society of North America (RSNA), the American Roentgen Ray Society and the ISR.

He was hugely popular, respected, and loved throughout the world and several radiological organisations had bestowed upon him honorary memberships and fellowships and Gold Medals (European Society of Radiology, European Society of Gastrointestinal and Abdominal Radiology, Asian Oceanian Society of Radiology, Sociedad Española de Radiología , Sociedad Chilena de Radiologia, Sociedad Argentina de Radiologia/Faardit).

He will be greatly missed.

Argentinean Society of Radiology's 100th anniversary

On May 14th, the Argentinean Society of Radiology has celebrated its 100th anniversary, thus becoming one of the few hundred-year-old societies worldwide, among which we find the following:

We'd like to congratulate SAR (Argentinean Society of Radiology) for this important milestone.

Dr. Ricardo Garcia Monaco, the ISR president, has given a plaque to the SAR authorities. He gave a speech to the celebration attendees where he emphasized about the SAR achievements during these 100 years, for being precursory of the Latin American Radiology, and emphasized on the importance of the accomplishments reached and encouraged to continue in this manner.

Dr. Garcia Monaco also received a recognition from SAR authorities for his presidential period 2001-2006.

The celebration took place as a social event, where imaging professionals and industry representatives came together.
