A world-renowned thoracic radiologist, 2008 RSNA President Theresa C. McLoud, M.D., is one of the foremost educators in her field as well a passionate promoter of the globalization of radiology.
Along the way, McLoud has forged new territory for women, serving as the first woman in the history of radiology at Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH) in Boston to hold the rank of professor at Harvard.
A Boston native, McLoud earned her medical degree from the McGill University Faculty of Medicine in Montreal, Quebec, Canada, where she also completed her residency training in radiology. Following a thoracic imaging fellowship at the Yale University School of Medicine in New Haven, Conn., she quickly became an assistant professor of diagnostic radiology at Yale. In 1976, she returned to Boston and joined Harvard Medical School, where she has been professor of radiology since 1993.
McLoud’s research in interstitial lung disease, CT of the thorax, lung cancer imaging and occupational lung disease has taken her around the world.
McLoud has conducted more than 150 postgraduate courses and published more than 200 scientific papers, reviews and book chapters. Now in its second edition, her 1998 text, Thoracic Radiology: The Requisites, remains a popular and comprehensive introductory work.
