Richard Morin, PhD has been instrumental in several key SIIM initiatives in recent years, including the launch of the TRIP™ program, the formation of the American Board of Imaging Informatics (ABII), and the transition of the Society for Computer Applications in Radiology (SCAR) to SIIM. Dr. Morin is the Brooks-Hollern Professor of Radiologic Physics at the Mayo Clinic, Jacksonville, FL.
Dr. Morin’s involvement with computers in radiology began during his Master’s thesis and continued with his PhD dissertation. His work has involved workflow management, CT reconstruction and processing algorithms, workflow analysis, Duel-Energy QCT, and MR reconstruction techniques to reduce motion artifacts. He also provided design, development, and technical leadership in implementing PACS institution-wide at Mayo Clinic Jacksonville and was one of the early implementers of the electronic radiology practice at the Mayo Clinic at a time when few medical physicists were involved with PACS and digital medical imaging.
He is a former Chair of SIIM, helped shape the SCAR/SIIM committee structure, and was one of the developers of the TRIP™ initiative – being among the first to articulate concerns about how radiology will be practiced in a digital world with ever-increasing data sets. He also is Past-President of the American Board of Imaging Informatics and Secretary-Treasurer of the American Board of Radiology
