It was with great regret that the Brazilian College of Radiology and Diagnostic Imaging (CBR) received the news about the death of Dr. Marcelo Benicio dos Santos.
Dr. Marcelo was the son of Dr. Itazil Benicio dos Santos, former president of CBR. He had a brilliant career: He graduated in Medicine from the Federal University of Bahia in 1978 and was a Full Professor in Radiology at the same institution. He completed his master's degree in Radiology at the Federal University of Rio de Janeiro (UFRJ), in addition to his doctorate at the same university.
He was very active in the College, especially in the Teaching, Improvement and Medical Residency Commission (CEAR).
CBR, on behalf of Radiologia Brasileira, expresses its solidarity and its most sincere condolences to the family of Dr. Marcelo.
