Beth Israel Deaconess radiology chief to edit journal

Dr. Herbert Y. Kressel, radiologist-in-chief at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, will step down at the end of the year to become editor-in-chief for the journal Radiology, the hospital said today.

Kressel will stay on staff one day a week in the radiology department and he will keep his appointment as a professor of radiology at Harvard Medical School. Dr. Vassilios Raptopoulos, who was recently named vice chair of clinical services in radiology, will serve as interim chief if needed. A search committee is being formed to appoint a new chief.

Kressel joined Beth Israel Hospital as radiologist-in-chief in 1993. He was chief medical officer and president for BIDMC until 2000.
