ARRS Announces 2023 Scholarships
The American Roentgen Ray Society (ARRS) has granted two 2023 ARRS Scholarships to Steven Rothenberg, assistant professor at the University of Alabama at Birmingham, and Andrew Wentland, assistant professor at the University of Wisconsin School of Medicine & Public Health. Both Drs Rothenberg and Wentland will be recognized during the opening ceremony of the ARRS Annual Meeting in Honolulu, HI on Sunday, April 16, 2023.
Steven Rothenberg, MD, is an assistant professor of diagnostic radiology and an associate scientist at the Center for Clinical and Translational Science (CCTS). He is also adjunct assistant professor at the University of Maryland School of Medicine and Advisor to the University of Maryland Medical Intelligent Imaging (UM2ii) Center. Dr Rothenberg received his bachelors in physics from the University of Maryland, College Park, then matriculated into medical school at George Washington University through the Early Assurance Program. He completed his residency in diagnostic radiology and fellowship training in imaging informatics at the University of Maryland Medical Center. After his second year of radiology training, he pursued an industry sabbatical and founded EnvoyAI (formerly McCoy Medical Technologies)—the world’s first radiology AI marketplace, which was fully acquired by TeraRecon. After the acquisition, he returned to complete residency and joined the radiology faculty at Maryland, prior to his appointment at the University of Alabama, Birmingham. Dr Rothenberg is on a mission to unlock value by connecting key stakeholders to progress novel and impactful technologies to transform health care. He is the cofounder of Empower Therapeutics, developing brain computer interfaces for pain management. His research interests include non-pharmacologic treatments for chronic pain, imaging informatics, and opportunistic screening.
Andrew Wentland, MD, PhD, is a tenure-track assistant professor in the abdominal imaging section at the University of Wisconsin School of Medicine & Public Health. He is a graduate of the University of Wisconsin Medical Scientist Training Program, in which he earned his MD, as well as his PhD, in Medical Physics. Afterward, he undertook a diagnostic radiology residency at Stanford University, then returned to Wisconsin for a fellowship in abdominal imaging. Dr Wentland has authored and coauthored numerous articles in the elds of radiology and medical physics. He is a junior fellow of the International Society for Magnetic Resonance in Medicine and serves as an associate editor for the Journal of Magnetic Resonance Imaging. Additionally, he is a member of the Renal Cell Carcinoma Disease-Focused Panel of the Society of Abdominal Radiology and Machine Learning Data Standards Subcommittee of the Radiological Society of North America, serving as chair of the Early Career Committee of the Society for Advanced Body Imaging. Dr Wentland’s laboratory focuses on artificial intelligence applications in abdominal imaging, specifically related to imaging.
