Scott Reeder, MD, PhD, FISMRM, FSABI, FAIMBME, is professor, senior vice chair of research and chief of Magnetic Resoance Imaging (MRI) in the department of radiology at the University of Wisconsin, Madison (UW) since 2005. He completed his radiology residency and a fellowship in abdominal and cardiovascular imaging at Stanford University. Previously, he completed medical school at Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore, where he also received his Masters and PhD in Biomedical Engineering. He is originally from Canada where he received his BScE in engineering physics at Queen's University in Kingston, Ontario.
Dr. Reeder is the director of the UW Liver Imaging Research Program, an active National Institute of Health-funded group that performs research in technical development and translation of new imaging methods, particularly quantitative imaging biomarkers to assess liver disease.
Translating basic discoveries in imaging technologies into widespread innovations that improve human health through imaging is essential to the mission of academic radiology. However, there are many unique challenges that must be addressed in the development of a successful translational imaging research program. In this lecture, I review the importance of research in academic radiology and describe strategies aimed at breaking down barriers to facilitate a vibrant translational imaging research program. The importance of mentoring and "human infrastructure" will be emphasized. I will review these concepts with the example of building a machine learning program at our institution.
