The Chicago Radiological Society (CRS) annually confers the Lasky Foundation Breast Cancer Fund Resident Award. This award is sponsored by the estate of Harold J. Lasky, MD (1922–2009), a former President of the CRS who played a pivotal role in developing the national quality assurance program that resulted in the Mammography Quality Standardization Act (MQSA) of 1994.

This award is a cash prize given to a resident or fellow for a meritorious project on the subject of breast cancer diagnosis, prevention or treatment that was presented at the CRS Resident Scientific Poster Session.
