Richard L. Baron (1949 – 2017)

The ESR Board of Directors is deeply shocked to report the sudden passing of Dr. Richard L. Baron, the RSNA immediate Past President and a very close friend of European radiology.

Dr. Baron was hugely admired as a leader, researcher and teacher and was honoured twice by the ESR for his achievements, being invited to deliver the Wilhelm C. Röntgen Honorary Lecture at ECR 2011 and receiving Honorary Membership at this year's congress, ECR 2017. He was an immensely popular figure among his colleagues in Europe and throughout the world, and he will be very dearly missed.
