Anne Hollman Biography

Dr Anne Hollman graduated from Bristol University in 1979. She moved up to Glasgow with her husband, Professor Gordon Dutton, in 1982. She was a Consultant Paediatric Radiologist at the Royal Hospital for Sick Children, Glasgow, with a special interest in ultrasound, and was the SRS Secretary from 1995-98.

Dr Hollman published widely and won the Jacques Lefèbvre award at the European Society for Paediatric Radiology in 1992 (for the best research presentation from a young radiologist). She and was recognised nationally and internationally as a superb teacher was the Regional Postgraduate Education Advisor for the Royal College of Radiologists, ensuring the best for trainees. She also chaired the organising committee for the 31st BMUS annual meeting in 1999.

Despite her busy schedule, she found time to care for her adored family, friends and colleagues. Staff came to her with their troubles and she was also a committed member of her church. A school in Guatemala bears a permanent memorial in remembrance of the support and donations generated by Dr Hollman and her church.

Dr Hollman died in 1999 of small cell lung cancer aged 42. The Anne Hollman Medal was donated by Prof Dutton in her memory to encourage academic pursuits amongst young radiologists in Scotland. The prize is awarded annually at the SRS Autumn meeting for the best oral presentation by a radiology registrar.
