Dr. Denis Melançon

Dear Faculty and Staff,

Regretfully we share with you news that our esteemed, long-serving colleague, Dr. Denis Melançon, passed away Thursday, January 21, 2016 at The Neuro, at the age of 81.

Dr. Melançon’s career at The Neuro, where he was Director of the Department of Radiology from 1995 to 1999, spanned more than 40 years. His outstanding achievements as a neuroradiologist are part of the history of radiology in Quebec and in Canada. He helped to pioneer CT and MR scanning. He gathered and analyzed data from many hundreds of brain scans to improve diagnostic accuracy. Scores of medical residents and fellows used the knowledge he gave them to make careers around the world. For the general public, he organized a major historical exhibition devoted to the history of X-Rays that was shown at the McCord Museum and at Ottawa’s Science and Technology Museum. He was the first president of FRER now called FARQ, the Association des radiologistes du Québec and served as president of the Canadian Association of Neuroradiology. He founded and maintained a quarterly magazine, Neuroimage.

To be sure, Dr. Melançon was highly regarded by his peers. The Neuro began its Denis Melançon Lecture series in 2008 to honor him in addition to bestowing him with a Lifetime Achievement Award. Among his numerous other distinctions was the Prix Albert-Jutras, a lifetime achievement award bestowed by La Société canadienne-française de radiologie, where he served as president from 1990 to 1992.

We would like to thank Dr. Melançon’s colleagues and friends at The Neuro who cared for him with kindness and compassion.  On behalf of The Neuro, we express our condolences to Dr. Melançon’s family and our thanks that Dr. Melançon chose to make The Neuro the site of his beautiful career.

We will pass along details of a service as soon as they are available.
