Dr. Eliot Siegel honored by industry magazine

Dr. Eliot Siegel of Severna Park, chief of Imaging Services for the Veterans Affairs Maryland Health Care System, has been named One of the 20 Most Influential People in Radiology by Diagnostic Imaging magazine.

Credited with building the nation's first filmless medical imaging operation at the Baltimore VA Medical Center in 1993, Siegel has devoted much of his research and career to advancing radiology from film to digital imaging.

When the Baltimore VA Medical Center moved to a new facility in 1993, Siegel led and oversaw the design of an all-digital medical imaging department that centers on a technology known as picture archiving and communications systems, or PACS.

He is vice chairman of information systems for the diagnostic radiology department of the University of Maryland, chairman of the publications committee of the Society of Computer Applications in Radiology, and has edited several books and more than 100 articles on filmless radiology, digital imaging and medical information systems.
