Roentgen Ray Society Grants 2023 ARRS Scholarships to Steven Rothenberg, Andrew Wentland
Leesburg, VA, January
26, 2023—The American Roentgen Ray Society (ARRS)
is pleased to announce two 2023 ARRS Scholarships have been granted 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.
Provided by ARRS’ own The Roentgen Fund®, the ARRS Scholarship
supports early-career faculty members pursuing radiological research that promises
to change how medical imaging is practiced. A two-year grant totaling $180,000,
the ARRS Scholarship aims to advance emerging scholars, as well as prepare them
for positions of leadership.
Rothenberg and Andrew Wentland will be formally recognized as dual recipients
of the 2023 ARRS Scholarship 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 fields 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.
