Tilman Emrich is awarded Barclay Medal
Barclay Medal Winner
On 3 November 2016, at the BIR Annual Congress, Dr Tilman Emrich was awarded the Barclay Medal. He was presented with the award by the President of the BIR, Mr Andy Rogers.
Dr Emrich won his award for his paper: “Cardiac Magnetic Resonance enables diagnosis in 90% of patients with acute chest pain, elevated biomarkers and unosbstructed coronary arteries.”
The Barclay Award was founded in 1952 in memory of Dr Alfred Ernest Barclay, who bequeathed a legacy for the general purposes of the British Journal of Radiology. Awarded annually to the person, whether a member of the institute or not whose contribution to the journal over a period of years has been of special merit, contributing particularly to the science and practice of radiology.
Dr Emrich trained in medicine at the Johannes Gutenberg-University Mainz, Germany. He now works there as a senior practitioner in the department of diagnostic and interventional radiology. The focus of his research is implementation of cardiac magnetic resonance imaging in NSTEMI and MINOCA and the use of T1- and T2-Mapping in cardiomyopathies and the general population.
Andy Rogers said, “It gives me great pleasure to honour these two recipients with BJR awards and we wish them well with their research projects in the future. These two awards represent different ends of the research spectrum and it is a delight to both encourage young researchers and also to recognise outstanding achievement.”
Dr Emrich said, “Thank you so much for choosing our paper! The whole cardiac group in Mainz is proud and happy that our work is honoured by the British Institute of Radiology”.
Sonja Gordic receives Young Investigator award
BJR Young Investigator Winner
The BJR Young Investigator award was awarded to Dr Sonja Gordic for her BJR paper “Whole-body CT-based imaging algorithm for multiple trauma patients: radiation dose and time to diagnosis”. http://www.birpublications.org/doi/full/10.1259/bjr.20140616
The award is made annually to a BJR author within five years of appointment to a senior post at the time of submission of the best original research paper published in BJR during the calendar year.
Dr Gordic trained in medicine at the University Hospital of Zurich, Switzerland. She continued her training in radiology there and since November 2015 has been a research fellow at the Department of Radiology, in the Translational and Molecular Imaging Institute at Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai, New York, USA.
