The Radiological Society of North America has announced that J. Anthony Seibert, professor of radiology at UC Davis Health, will be awarded the RSNA Gold Medal. The award is the organization’s highest honor and recognizes “individuals who have rendered exemplary service to the science of radiology and who have received unanimous approval by the RSNA Board of Directors.” The Gold Medal typically is presented to only three honorees per year.
An expert in digital radiology technology, Seibert specializes in using digital techniques and quantitative applications for digital x-ray fluorography, projection imaging, mammography, computed tomography and ultrasound/magnetic resonance imaging. He provides oversight of the UC Davis Health Quality Control program for imaging devices.
Seibert is the first UC Davis faculty member to win the Gold Medal since RSNA began giving the award in 1919. RSNA will present the award to Seibert at its 105th Scientific Assembly and Annual Meeting in Chicago on December 3, 2019.
