    Steven Montner, MD serves as Interim Chair of the Department of Radiology.

    Dr. Montner joined the UChicago faculty in 1988 and is currently Professor and Interim Chair of the Department of Radiology. In this role, he is responsible for daily operations and physician staffing, along with other senior administrators in the department. He also acts as a liaison with other departments and hospital groups. Dr. Montner is currently the elected president of the medical staff organization, chairing the Medical Executive Committee and serving as an ex officio member of the UCMC board of trustees.

    As a practicing radiologist, Dr. Montner specializes in pulmonary imaging, analyzing and interpreting chest radiographs and CT scans for thoracic diseases, and has an expertise in interstitial lung disease and diseases of the large and small airways.

    Through his research, he has worked with the section of pulmonary medicine studying how imaging plays a role in the characterization of interstitial lung disease, pulmonary fibrosis, and occupational lung disease. He has authored or co-authored over 45 peer-reviewed articles that have been published in scientific journals and given numerous presentations internationally.

    In addition to his clinical work and research efforts, Dr. Montner is active with the Radiological Society of North America and the Society of Thoracic Imaging, having served on several committees primarily concerned with radiology education and physician well-being.

    PMC Citations indicate the number of times the publication was cited by articles in PubMed Central, and the Altmetric score represents citations in news articles and social media. (Note that publications are often cited in additional ways that are not shown here.) Fields are based on how the National Library of Medicine (NLM) classifies the publication's journal and might not represent the specific topic of the publication. Translation tags are based on the publication type and the MeSH terms NLM assigns to the publication. Some publications (especially newer ones and publications not in PubMed) might not yet be assigned Field or Translation tags.) Click a Field or Translation tag to filter the publications.
