The highest accolade bestowed by North America’s first radiological society, the ARRS Gold Medal has been honoring illustrious service to radiology for more than four decades. The ARRS Gold Medal is awarded to physicians with a substantial record of service and who continue to render distinguished service to both the practice and science of medical imaging and its allied sciences.

Gaveled in as ARRS President during the 2018 Annual Meeting in Washington, DC, presently, Dr. Costello chairs the six vital scholarship programs of ARRS’ own The Roentgen Fund—cementing dual foundations in innovation and leadership for a true diversity of radiology’s next generation.

Dr. Costello will be recognized as the 2024 ARRS Gold Medalist during the opening ceremony of the ARRS Annual Meeting in Boston, MA.

Philip Costello, MD, was the 118th President of the American Roentgen Ray Society from 2018–2019. From 2004 to 2021, Dr. Costello was chief of the Radiology and Integrated Center for Comprehensive Excellence (ICCE) at the Medical University of South Carolina in Charleston. Currently, he is a faculty member and professor of radiology with clinical endeavors focused on thoracic imaging. Following medical school and house physician positions at Westminster Medical School in London, Costello began his North American career in radiology at the University of Toronto, Ontario, Canada. He is board-certified in radiology, practicing for many years at the New England Deaconess Hospital in Boston. He was director of CT and thoracic imaging at Deaconess Hospital until 1996. During this time, he became nationally and internationally known for his research on CT of the body. He established a revolutionary CT research program that pioneered the introduction of this new technology into clinical practice. In 1996, he was recruited to join the leadership of Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Adelaide, South Australia, as director of diagnostic radiology, where over a three-year-period he successfully reorganized the hospital’s program. In 1999, he returned to Harvard Medical School as chief of thoracic imaging at Brigham and Women’s Hospital, where he was appointed professor of radiology.For more information: www.arrs.org
