Louis Marx Professor and Chairman
NYU Langone Health
United States Virgin Islands


 Michael P. Recht, M.D., serves as Chairman of Radiology at NYU Langone Medical Center. Dr. Recht is a leader in the field of eRadiology, a relatively new discipline engendered by the development of digital imaging in place of traditional films. It permits images to be transmitted electronically, and paves the way for remote diagnosis and collaborative interpretation by experts from different sites. Dr. Recht has spent the past 16 years at the Cleveland Clinic, most recently as chairman of the Department of eRadiology (2002 to 2007) and chairman of Business Development of the Imaging Institute (2007-2008). Dr. Recht is a prolific author, whose work appears regularly in prestigious peer-reviewed journals, and a highly respected teacher who has delivered post-graduate courses around the globe. He has chaired the research committee of the Society of Skeletal Radiology, the musculo-skeletal committee of the American College of Radiology Imaging Network, and the program committee of the International Skeletal Society. His honors include the Norman Glazer Resident Teaching Award at the Cleveland Clinic Foundation and the 2001 President's Award from the International Skeletal Society. Dr. Recht earned a bachelor of science degree in life sciences, and was graduated summa cum laude and Phi Beta Kappa, from the University of Pittsburgh. His M.D. degree is from the University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine, where he was inducted into the Alpha Omega Medical Honor Society. He completed his internship, in medicine, at the Graduate Hospital of Philadelphia; his residency in diagnostic radiology at the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania, where Dr. Recht was Chief Resident; and fellowships in angiography/ interventional radiology (also at Penn), magnetic resonance (at the NMR Institute, University of Pittsburgh); and osteoradiology (at the University of California at San Diego)
