Dr. Gil Brogdon, University of South Alabama College of Medicine distinguished professor emeritus and former chair in the department of radiology, gave a keynote address in Zurich, Switzerland, at the International Society of Forensic Radiology and Imaging (ISFRI) meeting. His speech, titled "A Personalized History of Forensic Radiology before Virtopsy," was given at the society’s first meeting held May 14-15, 2012.
“I was pleased and honored to be invited to participate in this first congress of ISFRI,” Dr. Brogdon said. “I have been involved in this field for almost half a century. At my age it is flattering and pleasing to still be recognized as a pioneer in the field and to still be desired as a speaker at international meetings.”
ISFRI was recently established by 145 Charter Members from 22 countries and five continents. Its purpose is to promote, develop and strengthen the field of forensic radiology and imaging through education, research and communication.
Dr. Brogdon was elected as the first honorary member of the ISFRI during the meeting in Switzerland.
“It is a personal honor, true, but I believe that any time a member of the institutional family receives favorable recognition it also casts a favorable light on the University and its opportunity for individual academic achievement,” Dr. Brogdon said.
