ITN Celebrates 50th Year in Medical Imaging

Sam Friedman, M.D., Nuclear Radiologist, is chief technology officer at Pitts Radiology in Columbia, S.C.

Carter Newton, M.D., FACC, is assistant professor of radiology and assistant clinical professor of cardiology at the University of Arizona in Tucson.

Greg Rose, M.D., Ph.D., has served as president and CEO of NightRays since its inception in 2004.

You may have heard today’s 50 is the new 30. While you try to justify that one, we are taking this moment to celebrate the 50th anniversary of Imaging Technology News.
Formerly named ‘MEEN’ magazine, which stood for Medical Electronics and Equipment News, not its demeanor, the publication eventually spun off the brand, Imaging Technology News (ITN). The new journal focused on the vertical medical imaging market and earned its status as “The Technology Solutions Resource for Medical Imaging Professionals.”
Join us as we celebrate our continued coverage of new and emerging medical imaging equipment and IT solutions designed to support you in the delivery of patient care.
