"One of my mentors in medical school convinced me of the key role of imaging in pediatric diagnosis. Now, many years later and with many advances in the field, I remain amazed at our ability to look inside, to watch growth and development, and to contribute to clinical care, multidisciplinary education, and clinical and basic research."
