In memoriam Dr. Alex Margulis
It is with great sadness that we share the news that Dr. Alex Margulis passed away peacefully at his home in New York at the age of 97 on 7 September 2018.
Dr. Margulis was an extraordinary visionary leader who championed scientific excellence, humanism, multidisciplinary collaboration, and global communication. The impact of his leadership continues to be felt by physicians, scientists, and patients around the world. Over the many decades of his career he helped guide the introduction of new imaging technologies and raised awareness in the medical community of their potential and of the educational and organizational efforts needed to move biomedical imaging forward to further improve patient care.
As the father and co-founder of our society and symposium, Dr. Margulis laid the foundations for this unique think tank forum and realized long before the advent of the internet that the field of radiology was truly global, and that high-level international collaboration was required to help it meet global medical challenges. He continued to ensure the vitality of our society by attracting key leaders from industry and academia from around the world to join and contribute. We all lost a dear friend and mentor. We will miss his bold and insightful leadership.
