Oral history interviews. Medical Physics: Radiology Diagnostic Oncology Group, 1996-1997.
Interviews include: Daryl Caudry (Center for Health Policy, Harvard Medical School), Alec Megibow (NYU Medical Center), JoAnn Stetz and Cynthia Olson (American College of Radiology), Clare Tempany (Brigham and Women's Hospital, Boston), Richard Webb (University of California, San Francisco), and Elias Zerhouni (Johns Hopkins Medical Center).
A documentation research project to study the complex issues facing the historical documentation of multi-institutional collaborations in physics and allied sciences. Phase III focused on four disciplinary areas of ground-based astronomy, materials science, heavy-ion physics, and medical physics, and a category named computer-mediated collaborations. Radiology Diagnostic Oncology Group (RDOG) was a medical physics series of collaborations with overlapping memberships to assess the efficacy of various radiological techniques and modalities for diagnosing cancers of various organs. Harvard Medical School and the American College of Radiology have respectively done the statistical analyses and data processing for all RDOGs; the collaboration has no physical location but ACR is the headquarters for administrtion and records. RDOG principal investigators come from the radiology departments of various medical centers. Funding from the National Cancer Institute. RDOG 1 began in 1986; RDOG 5 was in progress at time of interviewing.
