"In the realms of life, Dr Saifuddin carved his path with the precision of a skilled surgeon -- equal parts family man, devoted believer, a gifted radiologist, a prolific scientific writer and let's say, a quiet yet avid admirer of Leeds United Football club (from a distance)," wrote Dr. Sajid Butt, a student, colleague, and friend Saifuddin's.

Asif's ability to spot the relevant abnormality in a radiological image was legendary, his power of inference extraordinary, and his ability to get to the bottom of the most complex of cases, uncanny, Butt wrote.

"His departure has left us to ponder the brevity of his years while acknowledging the monumental impact he made during his relatively brief time on this earth," he wrote.

The full tribute is available on RCR's website.
