Pioneer in Radiology Industry, Dr. Dennis M. Mackman, Retires from North Broward Radiologists

Fort Lauderdale, FL (PRWEB) May 17, 2012

After thirty two years of service to our practice and South Floridas medical community, our esteemed colleague, Dr. Dennis Mackman is retiring. His presence will be greatly missed and his contributions remain integral to the fabric of our organization. Since joining North Broward Radiologists in December of 1980, Dr. Mackman has witnessed and participated in many significant changes occurring in medical imaging over the years. In recalling his early years in radiology, Dr. Mackman says that ultrasound was rudimentary, CT was young technology - used mainly for brain (not much for body) and MRI was still in the research stage

After graduating from the University of Wisconsin with a medical degree in 1974, Dr. Mackman did his rotating internship at San Joaquin General Hospital from 1974-75. He began an anesthesia residency at the University of Florida from 1975-76 before deciding to make a change in career path. Dr. Mackman completed his Nuclear Medicine residency at the University of California San Francisco (where he also served as Chief Resident). Dr. Mackman recalls attending a UCSF lecture where he saw the first MRI the school captured the image was of the butt of a mouse that was crawling out of the magnet as it scanned.

Dr. Mackman received his certification by the American Board of Radiology for Diagnostic Radiology and received his Nuclear Radiology certification in 1980. The following achievements are merely an abbreviated list of his professional accomplishments:
