Gold medalists

The Gold Medal is RSNA's highest honor. It is awarded annually by the board of directors to those persons who, in the judgment of the board, have rendered unusual service to the science of radiology. Typically, three medals are awarded each year in accordance with the bylaws. Unanimous vote of the board of directors is required (locations indicated are at time of award).
