Gifts Sustain Innovation in Radiology, Imaging

Private gifts to the Department of Radiology and Imaging Sciences support the work of internationally recognized scientists.

Syntermed, an Atlanta-based provider of nuclear imaging software, has made an unrestricted gift of $50,000 to the Department of Radiology and Imaging Sciences in Emory School of Medicine. The gift will enable innovation that helps detect diseases in the earliest stages and will support preventive care.

“Emory produces the leading scientists and physicians who will generate game changers. This is why we continue to invest in the Department of Radiology and Imaging Sciences,” says Michael Lee, CEO of Syntermed.

The gift is among a series of philanthropic investments in the department during the past year, including a gift from Professor of Radiology Emeritus Richard Colvin 55C 58M 65MR establishing the Radiology Residency Education Endowment Fund.

Private gifts also help fund the radiology Adopt-a-Resident program, innovative techniques, and state-of-the-art equipment for screening and diagnostic imaging that can detect diseases earlier.

“Philanthropy closes the gap between traditional funding and what is needed,” says Stacia Brown, director of development for clinical programs.
