Liaison for Publications and Communications, Cincinnati, OH
Mary C. Mahoney, M.D., RSNA
Board of Directors Liaison for Publications and Communications, is an
accomplished breast imager and staunch advocate of patient-centered radiology.
“As we traverse a new landscape in patient-centered medicine,
RSNA remains the leading organization promoting radiology research and
education to improve patient care,” Dr. Mahoney said. “I am honored to serve on
the RSNA Board of Directors at this critical juncture in our specialty.”
A professor of radiology, vice
chair of research and Eugene L. & Sue R. Saenger Chair of Radiological
Sciences at University of Cincinnati Medical Center, as well as director of
Breast Imaging at Barrett Cancer Center in Cincinnati, Ohio, Dr. Mahoney is also
a trustee of the American Board of Radiology and a fellow of the American
College of Radiology.
A long-time member of RSNA, Dr.
Mahoney was chair of the Public Information Committee from 2010 to 2012 and has
served on several committees, including the Research & Education Foundation
Public Relations Committee. She currently chairs the Patient-centered Radiology
Steering Committee, the driving force behind RSNA’s Radiology Cares campaign.
“Being patient-centered means
you’ve considered the patient experience holistically—from the first time they
have contact with any member of your staff until the time they are given their
reports—and into your follow-up communications,” she said. “The RSNA Radiology Cares campaign was devised to encourage
and facilitate radiologists’ meaningful engagement in the patient experience.”
Dr. Mahoney received her bachelor’s
degree from Brown University in 1979 and her M.D. from the University of
Cincinnati College of Medicine in 1983. She began her residency training in
diagnostic radiology at Montefiore Hospital in New York, and went on to complete
her residency at the University of Cincinnati Medical Center, becoming chief
resident of the Department of Radiology in 1987.
Dr. Mahoney has authored or
co-authored numerous publications and is a sought-after speaker, giving
hundreds of invited lectures throughout the United States.
