Dr. Aman Khurana, assistant professor of radiology and joint faculty member, and Dr. Fanny Chapelin, research assistant professor--both in the F. Joseph Halcomb III, M.D. Department of Biomedical Engineering--saw their original work on Ultrasound Liver Imaging Reporting And Data System (US LI-RADS) awarded third place for early-career research award at "Society of Radiologists in Ultrasound" (SRU) 2020. Their award-winning research was reviewed among several national and international submissions to the annual conference.
Drs. Khurana and Chapelin's work is titled “Interobserver agreement between primary scanning sonographers and secondary over-readers for surveillance liver ultrasounds using US LI-RADS." The first author of the award-winning paper (Dr. Khurana) will be expected to present the findings to the SRU Fellows in a special mentorship session on the first day of the meeting. The mentorship session will give the presenters invaluable exposure to the SRU Fellows with a short time after each presentation devoted to a discussion between Fellows and the presenter.
The paper will be submitted to Ultrasound Quarterly, the official journal of the SRU, for possible publication. Other authors of the award-winning abstract include Dr. Adrian Dawkins (Associate Professor of Radiology & Abdominal Division Chief) and Dr. Leslie Nelson (Radiology resident).
