“Dr. Zeman’s contributions within the ACR, specifically his commitment to the Contractor Advisory Committee Network, as well as his involvement at the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) and other organizations, has helped amplify the voice of radiology,” said Gregory Nicola, MD, FACR, Chair of the ACR Commission on Economics. “He continues to give back by educating future generations of radiologists and I am honored to present him with this prestigious award.”

He was an integral voice in national and local Medicare coverage determinations for many imaging services, including computed tomography, magnetic resonance imaging and positron emission tomography policies. Zeman served as a voting member of the CMS Medicare Evidence Development and Coverage Advisory Committee Panel for four years.

The William T. Thorwarth Jr., MD, Award was established in 2004 by the ACR Commission on Economics to honor members or staff who show excellence in the field of economics and health policy by way of leadership, diplomacy and integrity.
