The Academy is an advocacy organization committed to advancing research in medical imaging to promote the health and well-being of patients. By engaging a community of developing and experienced imaging scientists, novel technology experts, patients and their advocates, we promote shared learning and communication on both current research and future initiatives. We also inform the public and policy makers about how imaging and image-guided therapies translate into disease prevention, earlier and more accurate diagnoses, and improved quality of health care.
The Academy for Radiology & Biomedical Imaging Research
“It is an honor to represent the Academy as its President, particularly at a time when the intersection of intelligent technology and human ingenuity are creating an unprecedented array of opportunities to advance medical imaging for the benefit of patient care. The Academy, in its unique role as the only organization that brings together representatives from the medical imaging community, industry and agencies from across the federal government, strives to facilitate collaboration and advocacy efforts to garner federal funding for critically important biomedical imaging research. The voice of the Academy is more vital now than ever before.”
