Faculty and Fellows Celebrated at 2016 Fellowship Graduation

Faculty and Fellows Celebrated at 2016 Fellowship Graduation

Fellows and faculty were recognized for their achievements, collaboration, and teaching during the past year at our annual fellows’ graduation dinner. At the end of each fiscal year, the Clinical Pediatric Radiology Fellows elect and award three radiology faculty the Dr. Janet Strife Award, Outstanding Educator Award and Outstanding Clinician Award. Also, one fellow was awarded the Roentgen Research Award from the Radiological Society of North America (RSNA).


This has been a productive year in research for our Cincinnati Children’s Radiology Fellows. Part of the curriculum for fellowship at the Department of Radiology is that each fellow is required to carry out a scientific research project.

There were eight first-year 2016 Radiology fellows. Between them they presented four research papers at the American Society of Neuroradiology (ASNR) conference, six research papers at the International Pediatric Radiology (IPR) conference, and one research paper at the International Skeletal Society (ISS) meeting.

Dr. Andrew Schapiro was awarded the Roentgen Fellow Research Award from RSNA. The purpose of the award is to recognize and encourage outstanding residents and fellows involved in radiologic research and to encourage the presentation of scientific papers and of publications in peer-reviewed journals.


The fellows choose Dr. Mantosh Rattan to receive the Dr. Janet Strife Award. This award is given to the radiologist that contributed most to the morale in the department. As Chief Fellow Dr. Brian Pugmire said, “…whether it be topics in the medical field, music, Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu…he was always enthusiastic.”


For the Outstanding Educator Award, the fellows choose Dr. Luke Linscott. The purpose of the award is pretty much self explanatory. Dr. Pugmire added that Dr. Linscott was always enthusiastic, looking at each and every case with the fellows in the Reading Room in addition to his excellent conference presentations. Dr. Linscott has taken a radiology position at Primary Children’s Hospital to be close to family. We will miss his good nature and welcoming smile. Dr. Linscott was out of town during the graduation dinner.


For the Outstanding Clinician Award, the fellows choose Dr. Jonathan Dillman. Even though Dr. Dillman only joined the department about a year ago, he quickly impressed on the fellows and everyone else in the department that he is an outstanding clinician and radiologist.  We all look forward to learning more from Dr. Dillman.
