John H. Miller, M.D., F.A.C.R., a pediatric radiologist and researcher in the field of pediatric nuclear imaging, has been named director of the Division of Pediatric Imaging at the Johns Hopkins Children's Center.
Prior to joining Hopkins, Miller was the head of the division of nuclear radiology at Children's Hospital, Los Angeles, and a professor of radiology at the University of Southern California School of Medicine.
In his new position, Miller plans to introduce new imaging technology, including the digitization of images, that will enable his staff to consult with surgeons and pediatricians in the operating room, emergency department and clinics, leading to better and faster patient diagnoses.
"Dr. Miller's exceptional experience and accomplishments as a radiologist, researcher and teacher will be an important asset for the Children's Center," said George J. Dover, M.D, director of the Children's Center. "His presence will provide additional depth and expertise to a pediatric imaging program which is an integral part of the excellent care we give to our patients and their families."
Miller received his medical degree with distinction from Wayne State University School of Medicine, Detroit. Following an internship with the Henry Ford Hospital, also in Detroit, he completed his residency in diagnostic radiology at the Mayo Clinic and a fellowship in pediatric radiology at the Children's Hospital, Los Angeles.
Miller has authored or co-authored four books and more than 250 academic papers and book chapters. He is a reviewer for Pediatric Radiology, The Journal of Nuclear Medicine, and has served on the editorial board of Radiology. He is also a fellow of the American College of Radiology and a member of the Society for Pediatric Radiology, Society of Nuclear Medicine and the Radiological Society of North America.
The Division of Pediatric Radiology at the Johns Hopkins Children's Center is committed to providing its patients with a combination of the latest technologies and the best quality patient care. While it is unusual to have a concentration of pediatric radiologists at any hospital, the Children's Center has long supported such a tradition, since Hopkins pediatric radiologists believe children and adults present different clinical and diagnostic challenges. The division and its cross-divisional consultants include some of the world's most renowned and accomplished radiologists. Department members come from a broad array of backgrounds, specialties and interests - but all are bound by a common pursuit of excellence in the field of pediatric radiology.
