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, interim chair and Eugene L. & Sue R. Saenger Chair of Radiological Sciences at University of Cincinnati Medical 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 2009 to 2012 and has served on several committees, including the Research & Education Foundation Public Relations Committee. She chaired the Patient-centered Radiology Steering Committee, the driving force behind RSNA’s Radiology Cares campaign, from 2011 to 2014.
“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.
