The Society for Imaging Informatics in Medicine (SIIM) has welcomed Bradley J. Erickson, MD, PhD, Elizabeth A. Krupinski, PhD, and Richard L. Morin, PhD, as new members of the College of SIIM Fellows.
Erickson has been a practitioner, researcher and educator in the field of medicine and a promoter of imaging informatics education and fellowship training. He is an active board-certified neuroradiologist. Erickson is an associate professor of radiology and informatics at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minn. Erickson has been program committee chair for the SIIM annual meeting for the past five years and is currently the new chair of SIIM.
Krupinski's research activities have been guided by two goals: understanding the perceptual and cognitive mechanisms that contribute to medical image perception, and utilizing the information to improve the clinical reading environment, diagnostic accuracy and thus patient care. Her research has focused on perception in medical imaging, evaluation of human visual performance, display technologies and telemedicine. She is a tenured research professor in the departments of radiology and psychology at the University of Arizona in Tucson, and the associate director for evaluation and assessment for the Arizona Telemedicine Program.
Morin has been instrumental in several SIIM initiatives in recent years, including the launch of the TRIP program, the formation of the American Board of Imaging Informatics (ABII), and the transition of the Society for Computer Applications in Radiology (SCAR) to SIIM. He is the Brooks-Hollern Professor of radiologic physics at the Mayo Clinic in Jacksonville, Fla. Morin also is a former SIIM chair, and has helped shape the SCAR/SIIM committee structure, according to the society.
