UCSF Radiology’s Robert Kerlan Delivers Dotter Lecture at SIR 2015!

A UCSF radiologist delivered the Society of International Radiology’s (SIR’s) 2015 Dr. Charles T. Dotter Lecture during the opening session of SIR’s Annual Scientific Meeting this week in Atlanta.

Robert Kerlan, Jr. MD, FSIR, chief of interventional radiology and professor of clinical radiology and surgery at UCSF, discussed how interventional radiology will benefit from collaboration with the entire medical community, considering changes taking place in the United States, both economically and in health care practices.

The Dotter Lecture, an event supported annually by SIR Foundation, is named in honor of one of the founding fathers of interventional radiology. “For three decades, the Dr. Charles T. Dotter Lecture has recognized outstanding interventional radiologists for their contributions to the field, dedicated service to SIR and distinguished career achievements. Robert Kerlan embodies all of these attributes and more,” says SIR President James B. Spies, M.D., FSIR, chair of the radiology department at MedStar Georgetown University Hospital and professor of radiology at Georgetown University Medical Center in Washington, D.C.

Kerlan’s clinical interests include the management of liver disease, including biliary disease, portal hypertension and hepatic malignancy. He is researching new procedures to diagnose and treat problems related to living donor organ transplants.
