Golding from Oxford, UK, will be presented with the ESR Gold Medal at ECR 2017.</strong></p> <p>Stephen J. Golding is a radiology fellow at Oxford University College, having previously served as lecturer and chairman of radiology at Oxford University Hospitals.</p> <p>Prof. Golding received his medical degree from London University and, after training in surgery, he completed his residency in general radiology at Guy’s Hospital. He became senior research fellow to Prof. Dame Janet Husband at the UK Institute of Cancer Research, to work on the then new technique of CT. His special interests at the institute included paediatric and head and neck tumours, and his main interest throughout his career has been oncology imaging.</p> <p>Like many radiologists of his generation working with CT, he was also invited to plan, design and commission the local services for MRI when it became generally available. He was Oxford MRI Centre’s director for five years between 1989 and 1994.</p> <p>Prof. Golding was appointed a fellow at University College in 1988 and was postgraduate tutor for radiology in the Oxford Health Region from 1990. He notably co-created the university’s first Master’s course in radiology and has personally supervised more than 80 students taking higher degrees in radiology.</p> <p>Recently he has been busy with contributions to establish national and international undergraduate curricular standards for radiology. He chaired the Royal College of Radiologists’ working party on undergraduate education from 2003 to 2005 in the UK, and led the new ESR initiative on undergraduate radiology for six years until last year.</p> <p>Prof. Golding has also served as president of the British Institute of Radiology, the UK Congress of Radiology and the European Society of Head and Neck Radiology.</p> <p>At ECR 2017, Stephen J. Golding will receive the Gold Medal of the European Society of Radiology.</p> </div> </div> <i class="banner-image"> <picture> <!--[if IE 9]><video style="display: none;"><![endif]--> <source srcset="/sites/default/files/2016-10/6.jpg 1x" media="all and (min-width: 1200px)" type="image/jpeg"/> <source srcset="/sites/default/files/styles/max_1300x1300/public/2016-10/6.jpg?itok=5qsSTcho 1x" media="all and (max-width: 1199px)" type="image/jpeg"/> <source srcset="/sites/default/files/styles/max_1300x1300/public/2016-10/6.jpg?itok=5qsSTcho 1x" media="all and (min-width: 992px)" type="image/jpeg"/> <source srcset="/sites/default/files/styles/max_1300x1300/public/2016-10/6.jpg?itok=5qsSTcho 1x" media="all and (max-width: 991px)" type="image/jpeg"/> <source srcset="/sites/default/files/styles/max_1300x1300/public/2016-10/6.jpg?itok=5qsSTcho 1x" media="all and (min-width: 768px)" type="image/jpeg"/> <source srcset="/sites/default/files/styles/max_1300x1300/public/2016-10/6.jpg?itok=5qsSTcho 1x" media="all and (max-width: 767px)" type="image/jpeg"/> <!--[if IE 9]></video><![endif]--> <img srcset="/sites/default/files/2016-10/6.jpg" alt="ESR" typeof="foaf:Image" class="img-responsive" /> </picture> </i> <span class="a2a_kit a2a_kit_size_32 addtoany_list" data-a2a-url="http://myesr.org/article/1044" data-a2a-title="Stephen J.

Claussen, from Tübingen, Germany, will be awarded the Gold Medal of the European Society of Radiology at ECR 2015.</strong><br /><br /> Claus D. Claussen is professor of radiology at Eberhard-Karls Universität Tübingen in Germany and was chairman of the department of radiology at University Hospital Tübingen from 1988 to the end of March 2014. He has been director of metabolic imaging at the German Diabetes Center in Tübingen since April 2014.<br /><br /> In 1971, Prof. Claussen graduated from Heidelberg University with a degree in medicine. He later completed a residency in radiology at the University of Heidelberg and worked as a staff radiologist until 1979. During his time from 1979 until 1988 working in the department of radiology at the university hospital in Berlin (since 1990 Charité) he became vice-chairman of the department in 1984 and was promoted to professor of radiology in 1986. He moved to the University of Tübingen in 1988 and served as chairman and full professor of radiology until 2014. He also served as a visiting professor at the Mayo Clinic Rochester in Minnesota, United States.<br /><br /> Over the last four decades, he has been one of the pioneers in developing and introducing new imaging modalities, together with his team, into clinical practice; dynamic-CT (1980), gadolinium contrast MRI (1983), cardiac CT (1998), 3T MRI (2000), whole-body MRI (2004 ). With a particular interest in MR/PET, Prof. Claussen has been involved in the development of hybrid MR/PET imaging technology since 2006, which has major potential in the field of molecular imaging.
