    R&E Foundation Seed The Future
  • Brian C. Lentle, M.D., values the importance of research and education to the future of his specialty. That is why he and his wife Jean have chosen to leave a legacy to the field of radiology by including the RSNA Research and Education Foundation in their wills.

    “I hope by making this small donation I can help other people see the reward involved in doing so—not just the monetary reward, but also the opportunity to contribute to one’s profession,” Dr. Lentle said.

    Dr. Lentle demonstrated his dedication to the field of radiology throughout his distinguished career. He served as the 2004 RSNA President and on the Board of Trustees of the R&E Foundation. He also served on the RSNA Board of Directors as the Liaison for Education. Dr. Lentle published more than 160 journal articles and jointly edited three books. He served as Chair of the Department of Radiology at both the University of British Columbia and Vancouver General Hospital. In 2009, Dr. Lentle was awarded the Gold Medal—RSNA’s highest honor—recognizing service to the specialty.

    Retired from clinical practice since 2008, Dr. Lentle remains involved in research because “it makes retirement more fun and keeps him young,” he said. “Throughout my career I have gained so much pleasure by becoming involved with other specialists and taking a multidisciplinary approach to my practice. Life would have been much poorer if I focused only on my specialty,” he explained.  
    Dr. Lentle considers research in education to be as important as research into disease mechanisms. His affiliation with the RSNA and the R&E Foundation provided him the opportunity to contribute to both.


    "I have been a big admirer of the RSNA throughout my career and valued its programs long before I became involved as a volunteer,” he said. “It is gratifying to see the growth of programs and the increasing sense of commitment to the field among my colleagues.”
