• Elliot K. Fishman, M.D.

  • Elliot K. Fishman, MD is professor of radiology and oncology at The Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine and director of Diagnostic Imaging and Body CT at The Johns Hopkins Hospital. He began his medical career with a medical degree from the University of Maryland Medical School and his radiology career with a diagnostic radiology residency at Sinai Hospital of Baltimore and a computed body tomography fellowship from Johns Hopkins.

    From the start, Dr Fishman approached radiology from the standpoint of an educator–from his earliest manuscripts focused on educating the practicing radiologist about body CT and the value of 3D imaging to his later articles on the science of radiology education. He has now produced more than 1000 journal publications, the majority of which include students or trainees as first author or co-author, a testament to his ongoing role as mentor to generations of residents, fellows, and junior faculty. His unique and engaging teaching style, highly innovative and inspirational, has proven to be an effective tool for career development for everyone he encounters.

    In addition to journal publications, Dr Fishman has co-authored 10 books and monographs including PocketRADIOLOGIST® Abdominal Top 100 Diagnoses and Multidetector Row CT: Principles, Techniques  and Applications, now in its third edition, and 50 book chapters. He has developed 25 audiovisual and Web-based programs in his pursuit of widespread dissemination of radiologic educational materials through computer-based methods, including CTisus.com, a Web site used by more than 60,000 radiologists and technologists in over 120 countries worldwide. The site won the gold medal at the American Roentgen Ray Society (ARRS) annual meeting and the Magna Cum Laude at the RSNA scientific assembly and annual meeting.

    Other awards and honors include election in 2002 to Alpha Omega Alpha—The Honors Medical Society and Aunt Minnie Awards in Radiology—“Best Educator” in 2001 and 2007 and “Best Researcher” in 2004. Additional honors include America’s Top Doctors, Castle Connolly Medical Ltd’s “America’s Top Doctors for Cancer” 2005–2009, “America’s Top Doctors” 2001–2009, and Medical Imaging Magazine’s “Top Radiologist in the Nation” in 2007.

    His contributions continue with 75 visiting professorships, numerous industrial consultations, service to 40 advisory committees, and as reviewer, consultant, and member of editorial boards for more than 35 journals. He is an active member of at least 16 professional radiology organizations and has contributed to them all with thousands of lectures and principal presentations, and countless abstracts presented at national and international meetings. Each year, Dr Fishman brings to the RSNA scientific assembly and annual meeting at least 20 education exhibits, scientific posters, scientific papers, plenary sessions, and refresher courses.

    In the last 20 years, Dr Fishman has coordinated more than 100 continuing medical education (CME) courses for the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine. His CME courses focus on state-of-the-art body CT and include hot topics such as CT angiography and cardiac imaging. He currently organizes 8–10 CME courses annually across the country and recently added an international CME meeting.

    Elliot Fishman has demonstrated a long-standing commitment to education directed toward the improvement of the art and science of radiology and, ultimately, the benefit of patient care.

    Elliot has demonstrated a commitment to and effectiveness in educating radiologists, technologists, and referring physicians through innovation, communication, and inspiration that is second to none. He has also mentored generations of residents, fellows, and junior faculty who have gone on to achieve success in their academic pursuits.” - Jonathan S. Lewin, MD, Professor and Chair, The Russell H. Morgan Department of Radiology and Radiological Science, Johns Hopkins Medical Institutions

    Elliot Fishman has been at the forefront of every new technical development in the field of body CT and has surely educated more radiologists around the world about CT than anyone. I am proud to know him as a career-long colleague and friend.” - Michael P. Federle, MD, Professor and Associate Chair for Education, Department of Radiology, Stanford University Medical Center

    Elliot has been tirelessly innovative in harnessing unexpected benefits of rapidly evolving technology for the purpose of effectively communicating clinical and educational information. He envisioned how 3D imaging would expand the usefulness of imaging beyond diagnosis to therapeutic planning; and CTisus.org has harnessed the power of the Internet to allow any radiologist anywhere in the world to bring these benefits to their patients.” - Alec J Megibow, MD, MPH, Professor, New York University Medical Center.
