January 2018


Alain Rahmouni (1957 – 2018)

The ESR is shocked and deeply saddened to learn of the sudden passing of Prof. Alain Rahmouni on Friday, January 26. Prof. Rahmouni was recognised as a pioneer in the field of MRI, developing cardiac MRI at Henri Mondor Hospital, Créteil, where he was head of the radiology and medical imaging department. He was a passionate and dedicated doctor, a driving force within French radiology, and a long-time friend and member of the ESR. He will be sorely missed by his many colleagues and friends throughout radiology and far beyond.
