RSNA’s Board of Directors has named Christine O. (Cooky) Menias, MD, the new editor of RadioGraphics, effective January 2021.
Menias will become the journal’s first female editor, succeeding Jeffrey S. Klein, MD, who has been editor since 2012.
“I’m both honored and humbled to serve as editor of our specialty’s leading educational publication,” Menias said, in an RSNA statement. “RadioGraphics will continue to meet radiology’s need for increasingly accessible, up-to-the-minute educational opportunities to benefit our readers and the patients they serve. I can promise that I will ensure that the journal will maintain its focus on clinically relevant radiology education as we embrace all of the exciting innovation promised by our increasingly digital future.”
Menias was born in Cairo, Egypt and is currently a professor of radiology at Mayo Clinic College of Medicine and Science in Arizona. She also serves as the editorial board chair for abdominal imaging of RadioGraphics, chair of the RSNA Education Exhibits Committee and chair of the RSNA Education Council’s Subcommittee on Unauthorized Use of Content. She has published six books and more than 250 peer-reviewed articles.
“Dr. Menias is one of the leading educators and authorities in our specialty,” Klein said. “The RSNA Board and our publications group are excited to work with her on the continued growth and evolution of our society’s journal for continuing medical education.”
