In Memoriam: Carl R. Fuhrman

The Pittsburgh Roentgen Society is deeply saddened by the recent passing of Carl Fuhrman. Dr. Fuhrman had a distinguished career as an academic radiologist in Pittsburgh. He served as a role model to his colleagues, fellows, residents and medical students. His legacy lives on through the many radiologists who trained with him.
