The imaging community had more to cheer May 7 when the NIH announced the appointment of Dr. Roderic I. Pettigrew as the first permanent director of the National Institute of Biomedical Imaging and Bioengineering. Pettigrew's background in radiology and engineering makes him an ideal candidate for this NIH division, which addresses a wide range of biomedical technologies. Currently the director of Emory University's Center for MR Research, Pettigrew holds a doctorate from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology's department of nuclear engineering in applied radiation physics. He is also the immediate past chair of the diagnostic imaging study section at the Center for Scientific Review at NIH--the section that reviews grant applications to develop and evaluate new imaging technology, including instrumentation and software for producing, evaluating, storing, and transmitting images.
