OAK BROOK, Ill. — (October 9, 2019) The Board of Directors of the Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) announced today that Mariam Moshiri, M.D., will be the editor of the new online RSNA Case Collection. The Case Collection, launching in spring 2020, is a new point-of-care tool developed for radiologists to enhance diagnostic outcomes.
Dr. Moshiri is a professor at the University of Washington School of Medicine and a staff radiologist at the University of Washington Medical Center in Seattle.
“The board feels fortunate to have Dr. Mariam Moshiri as the inaugural editor of the RSNA Case Collection” said Jeffrey Klein, M.D., RSNA Board Liaison for Publications and Communications and editor of RadioGraphics. “She is a highly regarded educator and clinician and has some wonderful plans for this new point-of-care education platform.”

Dr. Moshiri has published more than 80 peer-reviewed manuscripts and chapters on these clinical specialties.
A 1995 graduate of SUNY Health Science Center at Brooklyn, N.Y., Dr. Moshiri completed her residency in diagnostic radiology at Winthrop University Hospital in Mineola, N.Y., in 2000. She completed her fellowship in body imaging at University of Maryland Medical System in Baltimore.
After completing her fellowship in 2001, Dr. Moshiri became a clinical assistant professor in the Department of Radiology at Northwestern Memorial Hospital, Feinberg School of Medicine, Chicago. In 2005, she moved to the University of Washington to become an assistant professor and served as the university’s fellowship program director until 2011.
Dr. Moshiri is the 2019 RSNA William R. Eyler Editorial Fellow. She is a member of the RSNA Obstretrics/Gynecology Subcommittee of the Education Exhibit Committee and is a recipient of the RSNA Honored Educator Award.

She currently serves as chair of the women’s imaging editorial board and as a manuscript reviewer for RadioGraphics. She is also an ad hoc reviewer for journals, including Abdominal Imaging, Journal of Clinical Ultrasound and American Journal of Roentgenology (AJR) and is the continuing medical education editor for gastrointestinal imaging for AJR. She serves on the editorial board for Ultrasound Quarterly.
“I am honored and excited to be named the editor of the RSNA Case Collection, a key initiative to create a comprehensive online resource of clinical cases for the practicing radiologists,” Dr. Moshiri said. “In this era of progressive electronic education and communication, RSNA continues to be an indispensable resource for its membership and remains in the forefront of technology and education. I look forward to serving RSNA in my capacity as the editor and collaborating with its members to ensure success of the Case Collection.”
Led by experts and developed as a cooperative effort among the radiology community, the RSNA Case Collection provides a valuable resource that further enhances the professional development of radiologists and the industry as a whole. It is the first of its kind to be developed exclusively for the radiology environment. The Collection’s cases provide a curated and trusted resource that aids in diagnoses, even in the most difficult cases.
The Case Collection will begin accepting submissions in January. Each submission will be peer reviewed and vetted by RSNA before being added to the online platform. The complimentary, easy-to-use platform organizes cases by subspecialty, putting the most relevant cases first.
