In Memoriam


Dr. Richard L. Baron

It was with great sadness that the CAR learned of the sudden death of Dr. Richard L. Baron on May 4th, 2017.

An abdominal imaging radiologist and professor of radiology at the University of Chicago, Dr. Baron was also the Immediate Past President of the RSNA. It was within this latter role that he extended a tremendous amount of support for the CAR and its initiatives.

Dr. Emil Lee, President of the CAR, remembers Dr. Baron as “a great friend and leader who always made us personally and the CAR as an organization feel welcome, including Canadian radiologists in the RSNA’s important work and scientific endeavours.” Dr. Lee and the Board of the CAR wish to extend their deepest condolences to Dr. Baron’s family, friends, and colleagues.

The CAR was advised that a memorial service for Dr. Baron will be held at Rockefeller Chapel at the University of Chicago at 11 a.m. on Wednesday, May 31. A reception will follow the service.

In lieu of flowers, the Baron family has requested that a donation be made to the RSNA Research & Education (R&E) Foundation. In his memory, a fund has been established for donations that will go to support a young radiology researcher in abdominal imaging.
