During the 1970s Nuclear Medicine began a long and strong collaboration with Cardiology. This included Adult and Pediatric Divisions. Marvin and Bud Friesinger were the Adult points of contact, and Tom Graham the Pediatric collaborator. From that time to the present, Marvin has continued to share the reading of nuclear cardiology studies, and has collaborated on many research studies, including some indicated below.
