Matthew Davenport, MD
Nadia Solomon, MD
Pankaj Gupta, MD

Matthew Davenport, MD, is the 2024 RSNA William R. Eyler Editorial Fellow, and Nadia Solomon, MD, MSc, MA, has been named the 2024 William W. Olmsted Trainee Editorial Fellow. Pankaj Gupta, MD, was selected as the first recipient of RSNA's new International Editorial Fellowship.

Dr. Davenport is the William Martel Professor of Radiology and professor of urology, and service chief and vice chair in the Department of Radiology at Michigan Medicine in Ann Arbor. He earned his medical degree at the University of Cincinnati College of Medicine and completed a diagnostic radiology residency at University of Michigan (U-M).

After completing an abdominal radiology fellowship at Duke University in Durham, NC, Dr. Davenport returned to U-M as faculty in 2011. He is completing his MBA at the U-M Ross School of Business.

“This well-deserved fellowship will offer Dr. Davenport a focused opportunity to build on his experience and forge new connections while working with top publishing professionals in our field,” said Linda Moy, MD, Radiology Editor. “I look forward to working with Dr. Davenport as he becomes more involved in the detailed work of medical publishing and editing.”

Dr. Davenport’s expertise is in high-value care, contrast material safety and urologic cancer. He has served on the U.S. Food and Drug Administration Medical Imaging Drugs Advisory Committee, as chair of the American College of Radiology's (ACR) Committee on Drugs and Contrast Media, as vice chair of the ACR Quality and Safety Commission, and as chair of the Renal Cell Carcinoma Disease-Focused Panel for the Society of Abdominal Radiology (SAR). Dr. Davenport co-chairs the Oversight Committee of Multicenter Research Groups working within the SAR. He founded and chairs the ACR Radiology and Data Systems Steering Committee.

The co-author of numerous national policy statements, Dr. Davenport has published over 250 manuscripts, founded the Michigan Radiology Quality Collaborative, co-directs the Weiser Center for Prostate Cancer and was part of the team that received the 2013 RSNA Alexander R. Margulis Award for Scientific Excellence. He has served as an associate editor (contrast media) for Radiology since 2015.

"We in the field of scientific journalism have a duty to ensure that what is published reflects approximations of truth to the greatest extent possible. Our patients depend on us to maintain this social contract,” Dr. Davenport said. “RSNA's suite of journals is the premier place for scientists and clinicians in our community to publish their work, to advance our field, and to educate our constituents. I'm fortunate to have the opportunity to see and contribute to this process in a deeper way." 

Dr. Solomon is chief resident in diagnostic radiology at Yale New Haven Hospital in Connecticut. She earned her medical degree at St. George's University School of Medicine in Grenada and completed an internship in internal medicine at NYC Health & Hospitals Elmhurst Hospital Center.

“Dr. Solomon has demonstrated an enthusiasm for research, education and journalism as a member of the RadioGraphics Trainee Editorial Board,” said Christine Cooky Menias, MD, RadioGraphics editor. “Dr. Solomon’s experience as the 2024 Olmsted Editorial Fellow will take her inside the process of publishing in RadioGraphics and expand her exposure to radiology research and education.”

With the support of Yale Radiology and an RSNA R&E Foundation Resident Research Grant, Dr. Solomon is pursuing graduate studies in the Yale Investigative Medicine Program and conducting research in postmortem and forensic radiology via the American Board of Radiology Holman Research Pathway. She will remain at Yale to complete her PhD and a fellowship in emergency/trauma radiology.

"As an aspiring forensic radiologist deeply invested in advancing forensic imaging research and developing educational material and pathways, participating in the Olmsted Fellowship offers incredible opportunities to gain insight into how Radiology and RadioGraphics became and remain so impactful, and to receive guidance on how to best approach my future endeavors in radiology—and particularly forensic radiology—journalism."

Dr. Gupta is an associate professor of radiology at the Postgraduate Institute of Medical Education and Research (PGIMER) in Chandigarh, India. He earned his medical degree at the All India Institute of Medical Sciences in New Delhi.

An active reviewer for several international journals, Dr. Gupta was named the 2022 Roger Fellow in Radiology Journalism by the American Roentgen Ray Society (ARRS). He is the associate editor of the abdominal radiology AI section and section editor of the Indian Journal of Gastroenterology and Frontiers in Oncology.

“Being selected as the first fellow of the international editorial fellowship of the RSNA is a dream come true for me,” Dr. Gupta said. “This fellowship provides me a distinctive opportunity to interact with the editors of five top radiology journals and get a closer insight into the editorial process. The experience will enrich my skills as a reviewer and editor and positively impact the journals I associate with.”

Dr. Gupta's clinical and research interests are focused on gastrointestinal and hepatobiliary imaging and interventions, particularly gallbladder cancer. He was the lead on the gallbladder reporting and data system (GB-RADS) consensus. His team has developed state-of-the-art deep learning models for the detection of gallbladder cancer on US. He is supported by the 2022 RSNA Research Seed Grant to develop a deep learning radiogenomic model for CT-based non-invasive detection of Her2 mutation in gallbladder cancer.

Involved in many national and international radiology societies, Dr. Gupta was awarded the Dr. Kishor Taori Gold Medal by the India Radiological and Imaging Association (IRIA) in 2019 for the best competitive paper and received the Prof. V.P. Lakhanpal Gold Medal from the India College of Radiology and Imaging (ICRI).

“We are pleased to welcome Dr. Gupta as our first International Editorial Fellow,” Dr. Moy said. “Dr. Gupta brings a unique perspective and will gain significant experience in manuscript preparation and editing, peer review, journal production and digital publishing.”

The Eyler Editorial Fellowship takes place over the course of one month, and the Olmsted Trainee Editorial Fellowship lasts one week. Drs. Davenport and Solomon will visit the RSNA Publications Department at RSNA headquarters in Oak Brook, IL, and will meet with the Radiology editorial team during RSNA 2024.

The International Editorial Fellowship is approximately one- to two-weeks long and takes place via virtual meetings. Once the fellowship is completed, Dr. Gupta will be invited to work with the RSNA editorial offices to tailor his fellowship experience to a specific journal or area of interest.
