The Society for Pediatric Radiology (SPR) is a professional association of pediatric radiologists. The Society publishes the journal Pediatric Radiology and holds a yearly meeting. It was founded in 1958 at an informal meeting in Washington, DC. The society “is dedicated to fostering excellence in pediatric health care through imaging and image-guided care.”
The Society bestows Presidential Recognition Awards on members or other individuals whose energy and creativity have made a significant impact on the work of the Society and its service to its members. The 2017 Presidential Award goes to one of our own faculty here at Cincinnati Children’s, Dr. Tal Laor!
Dr. Laor is a radiologist in the Department of Radiology and Medical Imaging. She is the co-section chief of Musculoskeletal Imaging and is a professor at the University of Cincinnati Department of Radiology. Her clinical interests are musculoskeletal and rheumatic diseases in children; magnetic resonance imaging (MRI); and computed tomography (CT).
