    CIBR Hosts 5th Medical Technology Showcase

    In its fifth year, the annual Medical Technology Showcase hosted by the Coalition for Imaging and Bioengineering Research (CIBR) engaged federal budget decision makers on the impact of medical imaging technology.

    The late April event spotlighted collaborative imaging displays presented by representatives of academic radiology departments, patient advocacy groups and industry. In addition, the Academy of Radiology Research—the umbrella organization for CIBR and the driver of legislation which led to the creation of the National Institute for Biomedical Imaging and Bioengineering (NIBIB) at the National Institutes of Health (NIH)—presented Sen. Richard Burr (R-N.C.) and Rep. Anna Eshoo (D-Calif.) with Imaging Research Advocacy Awards, a.k.a. “Academy Awards.”

    The medical technology showcase followed two days of meetings at NIH institutes and on Capitol Hill to highlight the value of imaging research and the need to support NIH funding in the federal budget process.

Dr. Maynard, who served as 2000 RSNA President, is a professor emeritus of radiology at Wake Forest University in Winston-Salem, N.C. He received the RSNA Gold Medal in 2005.
