End of an Era in Radiology: Celebrating Todd Reynolds’ Retirement after 50 Years

June 28, 2024 – It is with great admiration and respect that we celebrate the retirement of Todd Reynolds BSRT(R), (CT), (MR), a distinguished figure in the field of radiology, after an illustrious career spanning half a century.

Todd Reynolds began his journey in radiology as a Radiologic aide at the University of Iowa, where his passion and dedication soon led him to pursue advanced training in X-Ray technology. Throughout his career, Todd’s versatility and expertise have been evident as he excelled in various roles, including technologist, Nuclear Medicine Technologist, CT lead technologist, MR technologist on a mobile unit, and most recently, as a second-shift technologist. His commitment extended beyond his daily duties, as he actively contributed to professional organizations such as the ISRT, where he served as an officer.

Monica L. Stark RT(R), (CT), (BD), who has had the privilege of working closely with Todd for the past 14 years, fondly recalls their initial encounter at St. Francis Hospital. “Todd’s infectious excitement about radiology was palpable from the start,” she reflects. “He approached each procedure with a sense of wonder and enthusiasm that inspired everyone around him.”

Beyond his technical prowess, Todd’s genuine compassion and empathy set him apart. “Todd’s kindness and dedication to patient care were unparalleled,” Monica adds. “Whether it was assisting a patient to the table, offering a comforting word, or simply brightening someone’s day with his warmth, Todd’s impact was profound and lasting.”
