The James P. Wilmot Cancer Center at the University of Rochester Medical Center has named Jeanne A. Cullinan, M.D., associate professor of radiology and director of women's imaging.

Cullinan received her undergraduate degree from Wilkes College and her medical degree from Hahnemann Medical College. She completed residencies in obstetrics and gynecology and fellowships in maternal-fetal medicine and in ultrasound. She comes to URMC from the Department of Radiologic Sciences at Hahnemann University Medical Center in Philadelphia, Pa, where she was chief of service. Prior appointments include clinical director of ultrasound at Vanderbilt University Medical Center in Nashville, Tenn., and assistant professor in the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology at URMC.

She is the author of more than 40 book chapters, peer-reviewed journal articles, and abstracts in the field of women's imaging. She pioneered a technique known as sonohysterography, a saline-enhanced sonography, which has become widely adapted throughout the United States. This procedure has contributed to the development of ultrasound contrast work, and the application of this technique for infertility patients as well as patients with abnormal vaginal bleeding.

Cullinan is a member of the American College of Obstetrics and Gynecology, American Institute of Ultrasound in Medicine, Radiological Society of North America, American Roentgen Ray Society, Rochester Roentgen Ray Society, Rochester Center for Biomedical Ultrasound, Association for Women in Radiology, Society of Radiologists in Ultrasound, Society of Woman's Imaging in Radiology, and Society of Breast Imaging. She is also co-chair for the Ultrasound Accreditation Council of the American Institute of Ultrasound in Medicine.

Her research at the University will include the advancement in the field of ultrasound as it relates to breast imaging as well as new modalities in breast imaging.
