Image Gently Thanks Dr. Ted Treves
Dr. S. Ted Treves is a member of the Image Gently Steering Committee and spearheaded efforts to organize and create materials for the Nuclear Medicine initiative “Go With the Guidelines" that was released in 2011. Dr. Treves continues to be a champion for Image Gently and just held two sessions at the SNMMI Annual meeting in Vancouver, BC to gain support for the Image Gently Nuclear Medicine efforts.
This June, Dr. Treves was the recipient of the prestigious Georg Charles de Hevesy Nuclear Pioneer Award. This is presented to an individual for outstanding contributions to the field of nuclear medicine. “Dr. Treves has contributed greatly to the field of nuclear medicine and molecular imaging, particularly in his work with pediatric patients,” said Frederic H. Fahey, DSc, 2012-2013 SNMMI president. “He has been an innovator and leader in systems integration in medical imaging, developing new diagnostic techniques and evaluating new radiopharmaceuticals—all with the end goal of optimizing nuclear medicine imaging in children. Most recently, he has been investigating the application of new technologies in order to optimize imaging and reduce the radiation dose to children undergoing nuclear medicine procedures. In addition, his work as an educator and advisor— including the publication of his textbooks on pediatric nuclear medicine—has changed the way that pediatric nuclear medicine and molecular imaging is practiced.” (SNMMI press release http://www.snm.org/index.cfm?PageID=12697).
Thank you Dr. Treves for your contributions and leadership within Image Gently. You have helped to promote awareness and education in the medical community and to the public. We appreciate all of your support and dedication.
