Laurence Needleman, MD, FSRU
Laurence Needleman, MD FSRU was born in the Bronx. His radiology residency was at New York Hospital Cornell Medical Center where his love of ultrasound was started by working with Eli Kazam. Eli sent him to Thomas Jefferson University Hospital where he was a fellow with Barry B. Goldberg, Al Kurtz and many other fabulous attendings. He has been lucky enough to do all manners of ultrasound from echocardiography to high risk obstetrics to interventional ultrasound. He is best known for his love of vascular ultrasound. He is the second division director of Ultrasound at Thomas Jefferson University following BBG. He has served on several SRU and other societal committees, JRC-CVT for vascular technology school accreditation, and has been president of Intersocietal Commission for the Accreditation of Vascular Laboratories. He was a philosophy major in college where he learned to distrust measurements. 


The Society of Radiologists in Ultrasound (SRU) has always valued a collegial and interactive meeting for its members and attendees. As we go ONLINE again this year, we continue to create and foster a dynamic and positive culture to support our values of inclusion, diversity and professionalism. We welcome all members and encourage open dialogue that does not discriminate based on race, color, national origin or citizenship, language, religion, age, sex, gender identity or disability.  

Therefore, during our digitally supported programming, SRU is committed to providing a safe, productive, and welcoming environment for all meeting participants and SRU staff. All participants, including, but not limited to, attendees, speakers, volunteers, exhibitors, SRU staff members, and service providers, are expected to abide by this Online Program Code of Conduct. This Code applies to all SRU meeting-related events, including those sponsored by organizations other than SRU but held in conjunction with SRU events, on public or private platforms.
