May 01, 2018

Jonathan MazalThe ASRT Board of Directors has elevated Jonathan Mazal, M.S., R.R.A., R.T.(R)(MR)(CI), to Honorary ASRT Fellow upon the recommendation of the Fellows Committee.

Under special circumstances, the Fellows Committee unanimously approved Mazal’s elevation. He is the first-ever Honorary ASRT Fellow.

Mazal has made significant contributions to ASRT and the radiologic technology profession during his 15-year career. He joined the Society in 2004 and within a short time began volunteering for positions on ASRT committees and workgroups. One of his earliest volunteer activities was on the Student Selection Committee. He also served in delegate roles for the Magnetic Resonance and Registered Radiologist Assistant chapters, graduated from the ASRT Leadership Academy and provided guidance as a member of the Committee on R.T. Advocacy. He also was a member of the Radiologic Technology Editorial Review Board and held the chair position for the ASRT Foundation Community Outreach Review Committee.

His staunch support for the Society and the profession led to a number of awards and honors including the ASRT Foundation Advancing Researcher designation in 2011, ASRT Award for Outstanding Grass-roots Advocacy in 2013 and an ASRT Foundation Research Seed Grant in 2013.

Outside of ASRT, Mazal holds an impressive resume through volunteer activities and leadership positions with the Maryland Society of Radiologic Technologists, Ohio Society of Radiologic Technologists, American Registry of Radiologic Technologists, International Society for Radiographers and Radiological Technologists, RAD-AID International and the Society of Cardiovascular Magnetic Resonance.

“You couldn’t ask for a more dedicated radiologic technologist,” ASRT Chairman of the Board Michael Latimer, M.S.R.S., R.T.(R), FASRT, said of Mazal. “His contributions to the ASRT and the profession have helped cement the Society’s status in the radiologic science community as the premier association for medical imaging and radiation therapy professionals.”

Mazal also is an accomplished speaker and author. He has presented at conferences throughout the country covering topics ranging from radiologic philanthropy and alternative career paths for radiologic technologists to innovations in magnetic resonance imaging and utilization of mobile electronic devices in radiography education. In addition, Radiologic Technology and several other peer-reviewed scientific journals have published his research and abstracts.

“Jonathan is truly an exceptional radiologic technologist and ASRT member,” said ASRT CEO and Executive Director Sal Martino, Ed.D., R.T.(R), FASRT, FASAE, CAE. “His enthusiasm for ASRT and the profession is remarkable. He’s one of the most highly respected radiologic technologists in our community and his elevation to Honorary Fellow is well deserved.”

Mazal will be recognized with the other new Fellows at the ASRT Annual Governance and House of Delegates Meeting in Las Vegas on June 22.
