Dr. Raquel del Carpio, Professor of Radiology at McGill University’s Faculty of Medicine and Senior Radiologist at the McGill University Health Centre has recently been named as the 2017 recipient of the Société de radiologie du Québec’s (SRQ) Prix Albert-Jutras 2017.  The award is considered the SRQ’s most prestigious, recognizing the entirety of a Quebec radiologist’s career.

“This most important Prix Albert-Jutras, granted to me by the Société de radiologie du Québec, is a recognition of the entire Department of Radiology at McGill,” says Dr. del Carpio. “With the support of my colleagues and Faculty I have been able to achieve many of the goals for which I am being rewarded.”

Albert Jutras was a pioneer in radiology in Quebec. While practicing general medicine in Abitibi he headed off to France to study this burgeoning specialty and returned to develop it at the Hôtel-Dieu in Montreal. His intelligence and culture added to the talent of a radiologist curious about new discoveries to make him a remarkable personality in Quebec society. The Albert Jutras Prize was created in 1986 thanks to the contribution of Squibb Diagnostics.
