Radiology Select Volume 5: Radiation Dose and Dose Reduction Guest Editors

Denis Tack, MD, PhD, is a radiologist subspecialized in CT at the EPICURA Hospital in Baudour, Belgium. In 2005, he received his PhD degree from the Université Libre de Bruxelles, Belgium. His thesis was entitled “Radiation Dose Reduction in Adult CT.” He was editor of the first (2007) and second (2012) editions of the medical books entitled Radiation Dose from Multidetector CT. He joined the thoracic imaging section of the Radiology Editorial Board in 2012.

Cynthia H. McCollough, PhD, is a professor of medical physics and biomedical engineering at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minn, and a fellow of the American Association of Physicists in Medicine and the American College of Radiology. Her clinical and academic contributions are focused on CT imaging, particularly on developing techniques to reduce radiation dose without compromising diagnostic performance. As director of the multi-disciplinary CT Clinical Innovation Center at the Mayo Clinic, she works with numerous co-investigators on projects seeking to detect and/or quantify disease using CT imaging. She has served as an associate editor for both Radiology and Medical Physics and is active in numerous national and international organizations in the areas of CT imaging and radiation dose management.
