IN MEMORIAM: Ferenc A. Jolesz, MD, B. Leonard Holman Professor of Radiology
Brigham and Women’s Hospital mourns the passing of Ferenc A. Jolesz, MD, who died suddenly and unexpectedly due to a pulmonary embolism on December 31st 2014.
In a career that spanned over 30 years at the Brigham and Harvard Medical School, Dr. Jolesz achieved world-wide recognition as a clinician-scientist; as one of the great innovators in advanced imaging technology; and as one of the foremost leaders in Radiology in this country and across the globe. He distinguished himself through cutting edge research in basic and clinical neuroscience, magnetic resonance imaging and image-guided therapy. Widely recognized as the “father of modern day image-guided therapy,” Dr. Jolesz spearheaded the development and implementation of highly novel approaches to image processing and analysis, visualization, and navigation techniques. Under his visionary leadership, many minimally invasive and non-invasive image-guided therapies were successfully translated into clinical application.
A memorial service will be held on Friday, February 6th, beginning with a gathering of friends and colleagues at 2:30 pm, followed by a service and a reception, at the Joseph B. Martin Conference Center at Harvard Medical School, 77 Avenue Louis Pasteur, Boston, MA. Details and additional information will be posted on his memorial website available at http://ferenc.jolesz.muchloved.com.
