Corbella Sala died of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, also known as Lou Gehrig's disease. She faced the disease with dignity, participating in forums that raised awareness of the disease, sharing her experiences of the illness, and raising funds for charities, according to the SERAM tribute.

"She was an optimistic and cheerful person and that is how she has been until the end," Prof. Laura Oleaga, PhD, chair of radiology at the Hospital Clinic of Barcelona, told "Within radiology she always had concerns to progress and transmit her knowledge to young people. She was a great radiologist and an excellent person."

She loved nature and particularly enjoyed the mountains. "I have seen a video of her sliding down the snow slopes in an adapted chair driven by a family member this past winter," Oleaga recalls.

Corbella Sala will be remembered for her passion for medicine, radiology, and neuroradiology and for being an expert in the field of head and neck pathology, and will also be remembered for her devotion to her children, noted SERAM.
