December 4, 2013 — Nicholas Reed Dunnick, M.D., was named president of the Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) Board of Directors at the society's Annual Meeting (RSNA 2013) in Chicago.
 
Dunnick is the Fred Jenner Hodges professor and chair of the Department of Radiology at the University of Michigan Health System in Ann Arbor, Mich., where he has been since 1992.
 
As president, Dunnick will help shape and implement RSNA's vision and strategic goals to advance the radiologic sciences and develop the future of patient-centered practice.
 
"We are proud of our past, but must focus on the future," he said. "This is a time to reflect on the many advances in our field and how they help us improve the quality of patient care we deliver. How will we translate the continued advances in medical imaging and image-guided therapy into better patient outcomes?"
 
We are moving from an era of “volume-based imaging” to one of “value-based imaging,” Dunnick noted. 
 
"It will be challenging to make that transition," he said. "However, medical imaging has so much to offer, I am confident we can succeed. Today's research is tomorrow's practice."
 
Dunnick earned his medical degree in 1969 from Cornell University Medical College in New York City. At Strong Memorial Hospital at the University of Rochester in New York, he spent two years in internal medicine. Dunnick was a radiology resident at Stanford University School of Medicine in California from 1973 to 1976 and served as chief resident his last year.
 
Dunnick began his academic appointments at Stanford as an assistant professor in 1976. Later that year, he moved to the Diagnostic Radiology Department at the National Institutes of Health. At Duke University Medical Center in Durham, N.C., Dunnick held many posts from 1980 to 1992, including professor of radiology, chief of uroradiology and director of the Division of Diagnostic Imaging.
 
Dunnick has authored or co-authored over 250 peer-reviewed scientific articles, 62 book chapters and 10 books. He has served on the editorial boards of 14 journals, including Radiology, American Journal of Roentgenology, Academic Radiology and Journal of the American College of Radiology (JACR). Dunnick has been a presenter at more than 150 scientific meetings and has been guest faculty at universities and institutes more than 440 times.
 
During his career, Dunnick has been an active member of several medical societies and organizations, including the American Board of Radiology (ABR) Foundation and the American College of Radiology (ACR), where he served as vice president from 2008 to 2009. He is past-president of the American Roentgen Ray Society (ARRS), Society of Chairmen of Academic Radiology Departments, Society of Computed Body Tomography, Academy of Radiology Research, Society of Uroradiology (SUR), Radiology Research Alliance, ABR, Association of University Radiologists (AUR) and the Michigan Radiological Society (MRS).
 
Dunnick has received many honors and awards throughout his career. He received the William F. Barry Jr. Award for Teaching Excellence from Duke University in 1984. He was awarded gold medals by ARRS, SUR, AUR and MRS. He has been named honorary member of the American Society of Radiation Oncology and the Japan Radiological Society. In addition, he has been named on "The Best Doctors in America" list nine times.
 
A member of RSNA since 1987, Dunnick has served on numerous committees, such as the Scientific Program Committee, Research Development Committee, Research & Education Foundation Board of Trustees, Education Council and the Grants Program Committee. In 2006, he was elected to the RSNA Board of Directors and served as the liaison for publications and communications from 2006 to 2007. In 2007, he became the liaison for science and served as chairman from 2011 to 2012 and president-elect from 2012 to 2013.
