Terry Silver

Terry M. Silver, MD

Professor Emeritus, Radiology
Division of Abdominal Radiology


Dr. Silver joined the radiology faculty as an instructor in 1974, upon completion of his residency. His growing expertise in the newly emerging field of diagnostic ultrasound made him a pioneer of the modality. Although ultrasound is a widely used imaging technique nowadays, it was a relatively new subspecialty when Dr. Silver began his academic career.

In his 38 year career at the University of Michigan, Dr. Silver was a dedicated educator, mentor and clinician. His leadership in clinical ultrasound and teaching will leave a lasting legacy through those he trained. Realizing the growing need for education in ultrasound, Dr. Silver developed courses that taught sonographers, medical students, radiology residents and fellows. His excellence in teaching has advanced the field through those he’s trained both at Michigan and around the world.
