Biology graduate Paul D. Friedman ’92 is an expert on protocols for determining which patients should have breast MRIs and on MRI optical techniques.

He gave a speech on the subject in 2003 at the Philips Network Meeting in Antwerp, Belgium, focusing on Philips’ SENSE Breast MRI technology, which, he noted, has been found to detect a high percentage of breast masses that later prove to be cancerous. The conference focused on new technology and procedures for achieving clinical excellence in neuro, body, orthopedic, and pediatric imaging.

Friedman is an attending radiologist at Saint Barnabas Medical Center in Livingston, N.J., and its ambulatory care center.

He earned his doctor of osteopathy degree from Southeastern College of Osteopathic Medicine in 1996; did an internship in internal medicine at Kennedy Memorial Hospital in Stratford, N.J.; completed a residency in radiology at St. Barnabas Medical Center; and completed a fellowship in mammography/women’s imaging at St. Barnabas.

Friedman credits Lafayette with preparing him for the rigors of medical school and residency.

“My independent study work with Dr. Nancy McCreary Waters provided me with the skills required for pursuing research,” he says. “I learned about the importance of organization and scientific analysis, which I continue to utilize in my current research projects in radiology.”
