Local Radiologist first in Las Vegas to receive prestigious honor

WASHINGTON D.C., Apr. 26, 2014 – Dr. David Steinberg of Las Vegas’ Steinberg Diagnostic Medical Imaging was recently inducted as a fellow of the American College of Radiology. One of the highest honors the ACR can bestow on a radiologist is recognition as a fellow of the American College of Radiology. ACR Fellows demonstrate a history of service to the College, organized radiology, teaching, or research. Approximately 12% of ACR members achieve this distinction.HistoryIn 1923 when the College was first conceived, its founders intended it to be a small elite group of fellows. In 1924, the founders inducted seven fellows at the first convocation and the ACR bylaws approved that year limited membership in the future to 100, of which not more than five new fellows would be accepted annually. Because this extremely prestigious society reserves the honor of fellow for only a few individuals each year, it is an incredible and unique honor, and in fact, Dr. David Steinberg is the first radiologist in Las Vegas to receive this honor.Dr. Steinberg is the managing partner of Steinberg Diagnostic Medical Imaging, a practice which he started with his father, Dr. Leon Steinberg, and business partner, Dr. Mark Winkler, in 1988. He specializes in Interventional and Neuroradiology. He obtained his medical degree from UCLA School of Medicine, performed his residency in Diagnostic Radiology at UCSF, and his fellowship in Interventional & Vascular Radiology at Alexandria Hospital in Alexandria, VA in 1986. From 1986-1988, Dr. Steinberg was an Assistant Clinical Professor of Interventional Radiology at George Washington University.About Steinberg Diagnostic Medical ImagingA leader of medical imaging in the Las Vegas area, SDMI currently operates six outpatient imaging centers throughout the Valley and will celebrate the opening of its seventh location in 2015 in the new Las Vegas Medical District.
