Research

Residents at the RSNAOur Department encourages all residents to engage in academic research, and opportunities to do so are plentiful. For any research endeavor accepted for presentation at a national meeting, the Department pays all associated expenses and provides the time to attend the meeting. Over the years, our residents have presented at many national meetings across the country, including those held by the Radiological Society of North America, American Roentgen Ray Society, American Society of Neuroradiology, Society of Nuclear Medicine, and the Association of University Radiologists. These are a few examples of our recent research publications:
