• Murray Dalinka, M.D.

  • Murray Dalinka, M.D., began his career in academic radiology in the 1960s with an appointment as instructor at Harvard's Peter Bent Brigham Hospital. He is currently a professor and associate chair for musculoskeletal imaging at the University of Pennsylvania (Penn) School of medicine. He joined Penn in 1976 and has mentored, educated and influenced countless radiology residents and fellows since that time.

    Considered one of the world leaders in musculoskeletal imaging, Dr. Dalinka is a founding member of the International Skeletal Society. He has published over 240 scientific articles and reviews, many of which have become seminal treatises on their topics. His textbook, Arthrography, originally published in 1980, remains the definitive work on that topic.

    Additionally, Dr. Dalinka has edited six annual radiology yearbooks and five volumes of the Clinic of North America series. In 1995, he became editor of the musculoskeletal section of Radiology Diagnosis, Imaging and Intervention by Taveras and Ferruci. Dr. Dalinka has served on the editorial boards for Radiology, RadioGraphics and Skeletal Radiology. Currently, he is an assistant editor of the American Journal of Roentgenology.

    In the words of one of Dr. Dalinka's former residents: "He became my mentor during residency. He is the reason I chose a career in academic radiology." The same resident remembers a particularly busy day when Dr. Dalinka was being pulled in many different directions as he worked with his residents and with visiting fellows who were private practice radiologists. While he was reading cases, patiently answering questions and pulling articles for them, one fellow asked him why he bothered working in academics. Without hesitating, Dr. Dalinka responded, "I love teaching the residents."

    Dr. Dalinka's role as an educator has had a far-reaching and tremendous impact on the physicians he has educated and mentored. He has given more than 500 invited lectures, attended by tens of thousands of radiologists in 27 countries.
