Carl Fuhrman, MD: Master Diagnostician, Educator, Mentor, Colleague, Friend

Dr. Carl Fuhrman died unexpectantly the evening of June 27th, 2020 doing what he loved most… reading x-rays. He was the consummate medical educator, clinician and all-around academic radiologist. His passion for teaching was known in and outside the radiology department. He won the department teaching award year after year, even after it was renamed for him. Carl also won the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine Golden Apple Award 9 times. Radiology and the department loomed large in his life, and his trainees, colleagues and associates within and outside of the department were his family.

Frontiers in Molecular Imaging: State-of-the-Art PET Imaging in Oncology, Cardiology, Neurology

The Division of Nuclear Medicine was fortunate enough to hold a symposium on Nov 21, 2019 entitled: “Frontiers in Molecular Imaging: State-of- the-Art PET Imaging in Oncology, Cardiology, Neurology”, backed by a great leadership from the department chairman Dr. Jules Sumkin. The venue was the Cathedral Room on the top floor of the Oaklander Hotel on the University of Pittsburgh campus. The symposium was organized in part to commemorate the long career of our very own radiochemist, Chet Mathis, PhD, who invented and validated the Pittsburgh compound-B (PiB). This PET radiotracer capable of imaging beta amyloid plaques aids in the diagnosis of Alzheimer’s disease, and has spawned an entire field of neuroimaging of dementias. A truly world class faculty from top institutions had graced the the event. The keynote speaker Dr.
