Professor S. Nahum Goldberg will present the Josef Lissner Honorary Lecture, titled ‘Systemic effects of image-guided tumour therapy: have we opened Pandora’s box or found the Holy Grail?’ at ECR 2019.
Professor S. Nahum Goldberg is full professor of radiology at Hadassah Hebrew University, Jerusalem, Israel and visiting professor of radiology at Harvard Medical School, Boston, MA. He is head of the interventional oncology unit and director of the Applied Radiology Research Laboratory at Hadassah Medical Centre. He is also the vice-chair for research in the Department of Radiology at Hadassah Hebrew University.
Prof. Goldberg graduated from Yeshiva University, New York, NY, in 1988 and Yale School of Medicine, New Haven, CT, in 1992. He completed his radiology residency and fellowship in abdominal imaging and intervention at Massachusetts General Hospital, Boston, MA, in 1997 and 1998 respectively, and received his master of science degree in radiologic sciences at Harvard University, Cambridge, MA in 2008.
Prof. Goldberg’s research interests include over 20 years of experience studying image-guided tumour ablation and imaging studies. His independent Applied Radiology Laboratory at Hadassah and Minimally Invasive Tumour Therapies Laboratory at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center in Boston are dedicated to uncovering methods to improve tumour ablation studies.
As the unit chief of Image-guided Therapy at Hadassah Hebrew University Medical Center, he also has considerable experience with clinical trials and interventional oncologic techniques.
Prof. Goldberg has authored more than 190 original scientific manuscripts, 25 book chapters and reviews, six guest editorials in Radiology and JVIR, and nine patents, and has been the principle investigator of multiple peer-reviewed research grants. These in total represent some of the most cited papers in interventional radiology, with the majority concerning the development and advancement of personalised delivery of image-guided minimally invasive techniques, such as radiofrequency ablation for the treatment of cancer.
Prof. Goldberg is a fellow of the Society of Interventional Radiology (SIR) and has also served on multiple national and international committees advancing interventional radiology, including the Cardiovascular and Interventional Radiological Society of Europe (CIRSE), the Society of Interventional Oncology (SIO), the RSNA, and the ESR. He is currently a board member of the SIO and has previously served as section editor for the interventional oncology series in Radiology.
