Juan Carlos Batlle, M.D., is a diagnostic radiologist at Baptist, South Miami, Doctors, Homestead and West Kendall Baptist Hospitals. Dr. Batlle graduated summa cum laude from Duke University before earning a master’s degree in bioethics at the University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine. Concurrently, he took part in an MD/MBA degree program at the university's Wharton School, graduating with honors. He received numerous awards upon graduation, including the Theodore Friedmann Prize, given to the graduating student who made the most significant advance in biomedical ethics. Dr. Batlle came to his role as a diagnostic radiologist at Radiology Associates of South Florida from Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH), where he served as a resident physician in the radiology department and a clinical fellow at Harvard Medical School. During his time at the hospital, he spent a year focusing on cardiothoracic imaging, including hands-on supervision of cardiac CT and MRI acquisition and post-processing. He also completed a musculoskeletal fellowship at MGH, specializing in sports medicine, soft tissue and bone tumors, and general musculoskeletal radiology, including musculoskeletal interventional procedures. Dr. Batlle has published numerous abstracts and journal articles, covering several fields of interest, including clinical radiology, informatics, bioethics and health services research.

Mark Bernstein, M.D., is assistant professor of radiology and trauma/emergency radiology at New York University Medical Center/Bellevue Hospital. Fascinated by the pivotal role diagnostic imaging can make in the care of acutely ill and injured patients, he had pursued a fellowship in trauma and critical care imaging at the University of Maryland's Shock Trauma Center in Baltimore. Emphasis was placed on a multi-modality approach (XR, CT, MR) to the diagnosis of critically ill traumatized patients. Dr. Bernstein developed a particular interest in the ever-growing role of CT, and now multi-detector CT, in assessing stable blunt and penetrating trauma victims. He compiled a series of trauma protocols for the Bellevue Emergency CT scanner and patients can now get a complete diagnostic workup in just a single visit to the CT scanner. Most of his interest lies in cervical and thoracolumbar spine injury evaluation, and the CT diagnosis of vascular injury including aortic injury.

Guilherme Dabus, M.D., is medical director of the fellowship program for interventional neuroradiology and endovascular neurosurgery at Baptist Health Neuroscience Center and Miami Cardiac & Vascular Institute. He is a clinical associate professor in the department of radiology, neurology and neurosurgery at Florida International University Herbert Wertheim College of Medicine. Dr. Dabus has extensive expertise in the minimally invasive treatment of cerebrovascular diseases including cerebral aneurysms and stroke as well as in the interventional treatment of craniofacial vascular malformations. He has contributed in several national and international publications, including peer-reviewed manuscripts, invited review articles and book chapters. Dr. Dabus is an active lecturer and serves as a reviewer for several scientific journals, including Stroke, European Journal of Neurology, Neurosurgery, Clinical Neurology and Neurosurgery, Journal of Neuroimaging, Journal of Endovascular Therapy, Journal of Stroke & Cerebrovascular Diseases and Journal of NeuroInterventional Surgery.  

Elliot K. Fishman, M.D., is professor of radiology, surgery and oncology and director of diagnostic imaging and body CT at Johns Hopkins Hospital. Dr. Fishman’s focus is on medical imaging with specific emphasis on three-dimensional imaging and computed tomography. He is a leader in the development of 3-D imaging and rendering, including its impacts on and uses in patient care and management. He was involved from the beginning in the development of 3-D imaging through his work with Pixar, a spin-off from LucasFilms. Over the last 25 years, Dr. Fishman continued to help develop 3-D imaging and has been a leader in the development of interactive 3-D rendering. His team is consistently at the forefront of research and development of new visualization and post-processing techniques and technologies. Dr. Fishman''s extensive body of work in CT has resulted in over 1,000 peer-reviewed publications, and he is the author or co-author of 10 textbooks. He is the recipient of three prestigious Aunt Minnie Awards, honoring his outstanding contributions as both an educator and researcher. In 2007 Medical Imaging Magazine named him Top Radiologist in the Nation. He is a member of editorial boards for more than 35 journals, an active member of several professional radiology associations and past-president of the Society of Body CT/MR.

Susan D. John, M.D., is chair of diagnostic and interventional imaging and professor of diagnostic imaging and pediatrics at the University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston Medical School. Dr. John's expertise lies in diagnostic imaging of pediatric patients, including radiography, fluoroscopy, ultrasound, CT, MRI, and nuclear imaging. She has a special interest in emergency and acute care imaging of children and in pediatric ultrasound, especially the gastrointestinal tract. Dr. John's primary research interests have involved the use of imaging for diagnosis of children in the emergency and acute care setting. Ultrasound is a special area of interest. She is an advocate for the use of ultrasound in evaluation of the causes for acute abdominal pain in children, such as appendicitis, mesenteric adenitis, intussusceptions, Henoch-Schoenlein purpura and various inflammatory conditions of the gastrointestinal tract. She has also investigated the use of ultrasound for cystic renal diseases and soft tissue masses in children. Pediatric musculoskeletal ultrasound and radiographic evaluation of acute musculoskeletal injuries and diseases are also areas of strong interest. She frequently lectures on pediatric elbow injuries. A third area of interest is acute abnormalities of the pediatric airway and lung, with particular attention to bronchial inflammatory conditions.

Constantino S. Peña, M.D., is medical director of vascular imaging at Miami Cardiac & Vascular Institute and diagnostic radiologist at Baptist, Doctors, Homestead and South Miami Hospitals.
