“I am honored and humbled to be recognized by my peers with the SIR Foundation Leaders in Innovation Award,” said Riad Salem, MD. “This award represents another triumph of our specialty and cements the principles of interventional oncology as an integral component of modern interventional radiology and cancer care. It is the culmination of a decade-long vision of structured research and development towards a new treatment paradigm. Radioembolization is now recognized as a standard of care by international guidelines and has been incorporated by thousands of hospitals benefiting patients worldwide. For this experience, I am blessed.”
“This is a well-deserved honor for a remarkable and dedicated clinician and investigator, said Eric Russell, MD, Chair of Radiology at Northwestern Memorial Hospital. “His innovative work has elevated patient care in our department and at our institution. His work allows our patients to have access to cutting edge minimally invasive therapies. He has also been a role model and mentor for our trainees and junior faculty. The Northwestern Radiology team is proud of his accomplishments and appreciative of the honor that the SIR will bestow upon him at this year’s annual meeting.”
The faculty and staff of the Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine’s Department of Radiology are committed to educating future leaders of radiology, conducting innovative research, and providing exceptional patient care and service to physicians.
