Stephanie R. Wilson, MD, Clinical Professor of Radiology and Medicine at the University of Calgary, has been recognized by Marquis Who’s Who Top Doctors for dedication, achievements, and leadership in health care and education.
Coming from a very accomplished family, Dr. Wilson decided early on that she wanted to pursue a combination of her two passions, health care and education. She found her niche, radiology, in medical school, and set out onto a path of research and academia that led her to be a world leader in the field. Along the way, Dr. Wilson obtained an MD with distinction from the University of Alberta, and completed a radiology residency at Toronto General Hospital at the University of Toronto and an internship at Foothills Hospital at the University of Calgary. She ensured she remained connected to developments in her fields by joining the Radiological Society of North America, the Canadian Association of Radiologists, SRU, and the American Institute of Ultrasound in Medicine.
Since graduation, Dr. Wilson has made sure to always hold both a full-time clinical position and an academic one. She was a professor of radiology at the University of Toronto and the chief of the section of ultrasound at Toronto General Hospital through the University Health Network from 1984 to 2007, and continues to be a clinical professor of radiology and medicine at the University of Calgary and a physician in the Department of Diagnostic Imaging and the Division of Gastroenterology in the Department of Medicine at the Foothills Medical Centre. Dr. Wilson is proud to run one of the most advanced and well-known clinical and research facilities for the investigation of microbubble contrast agents for medical imaging in North America. In addition to the liver, she also images the bowl with the technique to change the scene of care. She found ultrasound to be inferior and has thus expanded it with a contrast injection for better monitoring. She is now recognized as an expert in the evaluation of inflammatory bowel disease with sonography. As a testament to her achievements, Dr. Wilson was invited to deliver a William J. Fry Honorary Lecture for the American Institute of Ultrasound in Medicine in 2016, and became the first and only woman president of the Canadian Association of Radiologists in 1993.
In light of her ongoing success, Dr. Wilson was recognized as an honoree by the Canadian Association for the Study of the Liver in 2017. She also earned both a Lifetime Achievement Award from the Society of Radiologists and Ultrasound and a Joseph Holmes Pioneer Award from the American Institute of Ultrasound in Medicine in 2012, the Jean A. Vezina Award for Excellence and Innovation in Radiology from the Société Française de Radiologie in 2011, the Wightman-Berris Academy Award for Individual Teaching Excellence in 2005, and the Gold Medal from the Canadian Association of Radiologists in 2001. Further, Dr. Wilson was honored to receive the Colin R. Woolf Award for Excellence in Continuing Education Teaching and Best Teacher Awards in the Body Imaging Section of the Department of Medical Imaging from the University of Toronto, as well as a gold medal from the International Contrast Ultrasound Society.
When Dr. Wilson isn’t working, she enjoys golfing and relaxing with her family.
