Radiology resident Chris Keup, M.D., received the Outstanding Poster Award for his exhibit, “Venotomy closure using the MYNX vascular closure device,” at the Society of Interventional Radiology meeting in Chicago in March. The group is the largest interventional radiology society in the world. Fewer than 5 percent of the posters presented at the meeting received awards.

Suchhit Patel, M.D., radiology resident, received a bronze medal at the May meeting of the American Roentgen Ray Society in Chicago for his poster, “Congenital Midline Nasal Masses: An Interactive Case Based Tutorial.” The AARS is the second largest radiology society in North America. Each year one gold, three silver and six bronze awards are chosen from about 300 posters shown at the meeting.

Megan Saettele, M.D.

Megan Saettele, M.D., radiology resident, and Andrew Spencer, MS 5, each received a Certificate of Merit for their posters at the International Society for Pediatric Radiology meeting in London this past May.

Saettele’s poster was titled “Differentiation of Congenital Midline Nasal Masses: What the Pediatric Radiologist Should Know.” Spencer’s exhibit was “Modern Imaging of Pediatric Appendicitis Emphasizing Pitfalls and Radiation Concerns.”

The International Society for Pediatric Radiology is the largest pediatric radiology society in the world. Only 11 of the 200 posters presented at the meeting received awards.
