Gore joins Radiological Society’s Committee on Molecular Imaging
John C. Gore, the Hertha Ramsey Cress University Professor of Radiology and Radiological Sciences, Biomedical Engineering, and Physics, has accepted an invitation to join the Committee on Molecular Imaging of the Radiological Society of North America (RSNA).
The CMI is responsible for monitoring the evolving science and clinical applications of molecular and functional imaging and considering their ramifications for RSNA and RSNA members. It works collaboratively with other RSNA Committees or independently, as appropriate, to design and implement programs to integrate molecular and functional imaging science and scientists into the appropriate RSNA programs and products.
The committee also makes recommendations to the RSNA Board of Directors regarding needed actions, policies, and issues in order to achieve its vision for the future as it relates to the science and practice of biomedical imaging.
RSNA® has more than 44,000 members in 124 countries.
Gore also is the director of the Vanderbilt University Institute of Imaging Science. His research program is focused on the development and application of imaging, especially magnetic resonance imaging and spectroscopy techniques, in clinical and basic science. Many of his projects also involve the development and application of advanced image analysis methods and computer algorithms.
