American Board of Radiology Foundation Receives Grant From Varian Medical System
"The ABRF greatly appreciates this generous donation from Varian Medical Systems," said Glenn S. Forbes, MD, chair of the ABRF Board of Directors. "This project aligns with the Foundation's overall mission of demonstrating, enhancing, and continuously improving accountability to the public in the safe and appropriate use of medical imaging and radiation therapy. It promises to greatly enrich our understanding of the use of brachytherapy." ABR Executive Director Gary J. Becker, MD, also emphasized the importance of the funding from Varian: "Without this grant, the ABR would not have had the resources necessary to establish the new registry, which is crucial to our Focused Practice in Brachytherapy initiative and to our understanding of current practices and outcomes of this important therapeutic modality," he said.
"The Focused Practice in Brachytherapy Initiative, made possible by the Varian grant, will have an important national impact on clinical case quality assurance and policy development in radiation oncology," said Paul E. Wallner, DO, ABR associate executive director for radiation oncology and director, ABR Foundation. Participants will also be able to download documentation of the credential from their ABR Personal Databases (PDBs).
