Dorothy Bulas, M.D. F.A.C.R., F.A.I.U.M., F.S.R.U., chief of diagnostic imaging and radiology in the Division of Diagnostic Imaging and Radiology at Children’s National Health System, is being recognized at the 2018 Society for Pediatric Radiology Annual Meeting with their most distinguished honor, the Gold Medal.

The Society of Pediatric Radiology (SPR) Gold Medal is awarded to pediatric radiologists who have contributed greatly to the SPR and their subspecialty of pediatric radiology as a scientist, teacher, personal mentor and leader.

Initially, Dr. Bulas completed her residency in pediatrics. During a pediatric radiology rotation at John Hopkins University, she realized how much she loved problem solving and using emerging imaging modalities and went on to complete her radiology residency at Albert Einstein Hospital. Soon after, Dr. Bulas moved to Washington, D.C. to complete a pediatric radiology fellowship at her professional home, Children’s National.

Since the completion of her fellowship, Dr. Bulas views her role in the advancement of fetal imaging as her most significant professional contribution. She has published 131 papers, one of her most recent as a co-author on “Neuroimaging findings in normocephalic infants with Zika virus” in Pediatric Neurology. Dr. Bulas is also a co-author of the textbook entitled Fundamental and Advanced Fetal Imaging and has authored 35 book chapters.

She has served as program director of the Radiology Fellowship Program at Children’s National since 2005 where she has impacted medical students, residents and fellows from the United States and abroad.

As a previous chair member for numerous organizations, Dr. Bulas currently co-chairs the American College of Radiology’s pediatric radiology education committee. She is a founding member of the Image Gently Alliance, where she chaired the outreach campaign to parents and wrote brochures, web material and articles. Dr. Bulas is also a founder of the World Federation of Pediatric Imaging.

Dr. Bulas was honored as an outstanding teacher with the Edward Singleton-Hooshang Taybi Award for Excellence in Education from the SPR and this past fall and as the Outstanding Educator in 2017 by the Radiological Society of North America.
