Medical Imaging Resident Achievements Day - June 14, 2018
Another Successful Resident Achievement's Day - A Message from Departmental Chair, Dr. Alan Moody
The Resident Achievements Day was held on June 14th in the pleasant surroundings of Snell Hall at the St. James Cathedral Centre. The day was focused on presentations by PGY4s, PGY5s and this year included our PGY7 Nuclear Medicine graduates, Dr. Michael De Rosa and Dr. Philip Mok. Each presentation ran for 10 minutes, with 2 minutes for questions.
The talks generated much interest and often the discussion had to be curtailed despite more questions in order to keep on time. The titles varied from “Residency experience and Career Planning Among Radiology Residents: making the transition from resident to junior faculty”, “Diagnostic accuracy and observer reliability of various sonographic features of ovarian torsion amongst variably experienced radiology readers ” to “MRI-ultrasound cognitive fusion targeted versus systematic random prostate biopsy: comparison of diagnostic yield” and included “Defining a specific target for deep brain stimulation in pediatric dystonia”.
The winner of the residents' research prize for best presentation was Dr. Helen Cheung for her talk entitled "Late gadolinium enhancement of colorectal liver metastases post-chemotherapy is associated with tumour fibrosis and overall survival post-hepatectomy". Runners Up this year were Dr. Alex Bilbily for “Predicting Skeletal Age - Insights from the 2017 RSNA Machine Learning Competition” and Dr. Andrew Brown for "Quantitative measurement of radiology report quality".

A Message from Dr. Eric Bartlett - Diagnostic Readiology Program Director
I would like to thank everyone for making the Graduation Dinner and Celebration such a successful and special evening for the Residency Program! As the evening portion of the 4th Annual Resident Achievements Day, the dinner and celebration provided a wonderful opportunity for everyone to reflect on the individual, group and Program successes throughout the Academic Year.
This year, we invited Rob Hawke (bio) to deliver a keynote address at the Dinner. Rob is a speaker, author, comedian as well as a cancer survivor. He delivered a thought-provoking talk, “The Patient Will See You Now”.
Although the evening celebrated the achievements of the entire Residency Program, the highlight was the celebration of our graduating PGY5 Residents!
The evening’s cheer continued beyond the dinner program at the Residents’ After Party, held at Pravda Vodka House.
