Dallas, TX US
May 1, 2018

Radiology Research Day features a total of 49 presentations (10 oral, 10 Electronic, and 29 posters) given by mentored trainees in the Department of Radiology. These presentations will cover a variety of basic science topics, a number of prospective, retrospective, and translational studies carried out in the Department of Radiology. These presentations will provide concrete examples of experimental design, statistical analysis and hypothesis-driven research. The trainee talks will be followed by a keynote lecture, ‘Promoting Innovation within your Team: Practical Pearls for Pragmatic People’ (Thomas M. Grist, M.D., FACR, John H. Juhl Professor of Radiology, Medical Physics and Bioengineering and Chair of the Department of Radiology at the University of Wisconsin School of Medicine and Public Health). The CME activity will consist of the 10 oral presentations and the keynote lecture.
