The Dr. S.L. Fransman Prize in Diagnostic Radiology

Established by Dr. S.L. Fransman and Mrs. Bertha Fransman to recognize Dr. Fransman's contribution to the Department of Diagnostic Radiology.

Dr S.L. Fransman was Professor of Radiology and head of the Radiology Department from 1960 to 1982. After his retirement, he continued to teach at Queen's and at his home for several years. He was responsible for bringing the first CAT Scan machine to Canada (to the K.G.H.) and was the first radiologist in the world to use this new technology.
