Dr. Roderic Pettigrew, Vienna '70-'71

A year in Vienna launched a vibrant life and career for Roderic Pettigrew who is currently serving as Director of Biomedical Imaging and Bioengineering at the National Institute of Health.  Radiology Today magazine calls Roderic a renaissance man who excels in a wide variety of subjects and fields.  In addition to making huge advances in dynamic three dimensional cardiac MR imaging, he travels extensively, enjoys painting, jazz, and skiing -- a skill he picked up in Austria!

"The time I spent in Vienna prepared me to face virtually any future challenge."
