RaySafe solutions are designed to minimize the need for user interaction, bringing unprecedented simplicity & usability to the X-ray room. We're committed to establishing a radiation safety culture wherever technicians & medical staff encounter radiation.



Penney came to the School of Medicine in 2004 as part of an MRI fellowship and was appointed director and chief of radiology at Barnes-Jewish St. Peters Hospital two years later.

“He quickly established himself as an excellent radiologist and provided leadership during a time of transition and uncertainty,” said Richard L. Wahl, MD, the Elizabeth E. Mallinckrodt Professor and head of radiology, and director of MIR.

Since his arrival at MIR, Penney also has been elected by his peers to serve two terms as chief of staff and as a member of the board of directors at Barnes-Jewish St. Peters Hospital.

When MIR began offering services at Progress West Hospital in 2013, Penney spearheaded the effort. Further, his team began the first interventional radiology practice at the hospital. He has served on numerous committees, including the medical executive, quality/peer review, and ethics committees at Progress West Hospital and Barnes-Jewish St. Peters Hospital, and the cancer committee at Barnes-Jewish St. Peters.

“Michael has introduced state-of-the-art applications and protocols to CT and MRI, and played a key role in establishing the interventional and mammography services at Progress West,” Wahl said.

Penney earned his medical degree at the University of Arkansas School for Medical Sciences, and completed a residency in diagnostic radiology at Vanderbilt University Medical Center before arriving at Washington University.


Washington University School of Medicine’s 1,500 faculty physicians also are the medical staff of Barnes-Jewish and St. Louis Children’s hospitals. The School of Medicine is a leader in medical research, teaching and patient care, ranking among the top 10 medical schools in the nation by U.S. News & World Report. Through its affiliations with Barnes-Jewish and St. Louis Children’s hospitals, the School of Medicine is linked to BJC HealthCare.
