Tribute Prof. Jean-François Moreau

Dear colleagues,

It is our sad duty to announce that Prof. Jean-François Moreau passed away at the age of 85.

Co-founder of ESUR (1990), member-at-large (1990-1994) and President of ESUR (1994-1996), Prof. Jean-François Moreau was highly respected through our Society and the French Society of Radiology (SFR), as an outstanding radiologist, esteemed colleague and dear friend. Head of the Department of Radiology in Necker Hospital, Paris, France, he surrounded himself with a young team of brilliant radiologists with the objective of developing and promoting a school of Uro-Radiology. He was a pioneer in the field of ultrasound and ultrasound contrast media, and a recognized and talented researcher.

His many responsibilities and international actions have played an important role in the influence of urogenital imaging and Ultrasound imaging. Prof. Jean-François Moreau was involved in several international societies: fellow of the American society of Uro Radiology (SUR), member of the boards of the European Federation of Ultrasound in Medicine and Biology (EFSUMB) and the World Federation of Ultrasound in Medicine and Biology (WFUMB), and of the International Society of Radiology (ISR).

He was passionate about history and literature and, of course, for Jean-François MOREAU, this was to result in the production of many texts on the history of Radiology, autobiographical narratives, essays, and other novels, which he shared on the web, and through his involvement in the International Society on the History of Radiology (ISHRAD), of which he was a founding member.

We will truly miss him. Our deeply saddened thoughts go out to his family, as well as his loved ones, his wife Michèle and his son Pierre Arthur, to whom we send our most sincere condolences and deepest sympathy.
