Research

Most residents are involved in at least one if not multiple research and/or QI projects. In 2013 so far, two residents presented at ARRS in Washington DC, one resident presented at the ACR conference in Scottsdale AZ, one resident was published in JVIR and one resident was published in AUR. One resident also produced as the result of a QI project a radiation protocol for pregnant patients to be used by the entire Advocate network.
