  1. Personal Influence

    It was not until a premedical student at Loyola University that I heard of Liane B. Russel PhD and her contributions to radiation safety in pregnant women. She is forever credited with the sentiment, “There is no safety accumulation limit for ionizing radiation.” A philosophy I used decades later as a career doctor, as well as patient.

    Well done Dr. Liane B. Russell. A life of great service!
