UI Imaging Specialists Named In Industry Magazine's Top 10

Three imaging experts at the University of Iowa Roy J. and Lucille A. Carver College of Medicine and UI Hospitals and Clinics have been voted "best of the best" by their peers in a survey run by Medical Imaging, a leading imaging industry magazine.

Medical Imaging readers were asked to rank the industry's 10 best individuals or programs in 10 different categories based on factors including research, innovation and patient care and outcomes.

Laurie Fajardo, M.D., professor and head of radiology, was ranked second in the category for Women's Imaging Specialist. John Buatti, M.D., professor and head of radiation oncology and professor of otolaryngology, was ranked ninth among radiation oncologists/cancer researchers. Mark Madsen, Ph.D., professor of radiology and of physics and astronomy in the UI College of Liberal Arts and Sciences, was tenth among nuclear physicist/nuclear medicine researchers.

Two other UI faculty also were named runners-up in the survey: David Bushnell, M.D., professor of radiology, in the nuclear physicist/nuclear medicine researcher category, and John Chaloupka, M.D., professor of radiology, in the cardiovascular imager/cardiac catheterization director category.
