Sue’s departure will leave a void in the IR team’s heart. She has been such an integral part of every aspect of the team. Sue is the resident supply expert and has been involved in training the next generation of IR technologists. 

Sue will be filling her time traveling and spending time with family and friends. We wish her good luck! 

Keith J. Strauss, MSc, FACR

The Society for Pediatric Radiology recognized one of our own Radiology physicists, Keith Strauss, as an Honorary Member for 2020. The Society for Pediatric Radiology is a professional membership association dedicated to fostering excellence in pediatric healthcare through imaging and image-guided care. 

In 2012, Keith was recruited to Cincinnati Children’s Hospital where he is an Associate Professor of Radiology and Section Head of Clinical Medical Physics. Keith has a vast academic legacy. He has given almost 200 lectures and written over 175 papers, book chapters, editorials and abstracts. As Sam Brady, PhD states, “In the field of pediatric imaging, Keith’s publications are some of the most cited and referenced scientific works to date. Many of Keith’s efforts have fundamentally changed how we image pediatric patients.” – Pediatr Radiol (2020) 50 (Suppl 1):S1–S181
