Dr. Schreibman is a popular lecturer, speaking to audiences of diverse backgrounds, as well as at the annual meetings of the American Roentgen Ray Society (ARRS) and the Radiology Society of North America (RSNA). He is internationally recognized for his innovative uses of PowerPoint, which he uses to illustrate complex radiology and anatomy concepts as simple shapes.
